Horseback riding on the beach

Book online button

If it's not on your bucket list, maybe it should be. The Great World Adventures' BeachHorses Experience is much more than a beach ride. It's a unique interaction with highly trained animals and their trainers. It's an authentic "Old Florida" family experience. It can be romantic, educational, exciting, and memorable. It makes a wonderful gift. And it's a fantastic photo-op.

For some, the dream of riding a horse on a beach is motivation enough to plan a weekend visit to nearby
Anna Maria Island. For others, the main attraction is what happens in the water where we'll teach you how to do a few tricks on your horse.

We've been
teaching locals and tourists how to have fun with horses at Palma Sola Bay since 2006. Since then, we've become kind of famous because of HorseSurfing and Horse Skiing. We've been featured in broadcast and print media in North America and Europe. One time when National Geographic put up a photo of BeachHorses™ on their Instagram site, it got over 46,000 Likes in less than 24 hours.

You might even see a few wild dolphins swimming by you! Call for prices and availability at +1 (941) 907-7272.

How it works...

First, buy your tickets. We usually sell out so it is best to buy your tickets well in advance because we sell out nearly every day. You can buy online 24/7 or call us at +1 (941) 907-7272 (recommended).

After buying your tickets, we'll send you a confirmation email with a booking number and tons of info like
directions, what to wear, etc. It is very important that you read this email ASAP after booking. Please call us immediately if you have any questions.

You will be meeting us at
Palma Sola Bay. We trailer the horses to the bay from a farm about 45 minutes away. You should arrive about 15 minutes before you are scheduled to ride. Please don't be late.

The first half of the experience is on the beach and the second half is in the water. You will have an instructor/guide with you at all times. When you are in the water, your instructor will teach you how to do some tricks on the horse.

If you have any questions or need help, please call Customer Service at +1 (941) 907-7272. We are available Monday through Friday 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM. Or shoot us an email.
