How you can horseback ride on the beaches of Bradenton!

Have ever seen those vacation websites or brochures for places far away where people are riding horses on the beach? Well, you don’t have to travel far from the Tampa Bay area to be able to do this.

Keith Connors from 99.5 QYK took his daughter to do this fun family activity with Florida Beach Horses of Tampa Bay.

Many of the horses are rescues, too!

They offer many horseback ride options on the beaches for all ages and all experience levels.

Florida Beach Horses of Tampa Bay have so many fun experiences to choose from:

  • The Sand and Surf Ride
  • The Cruise Ride
  • Sand & Surf Sunset Ride
  • Sunset Cruise Ride

Rides last for about one hour and fifteen minutes and kids as young as three-years-old can ride.

You don’t HAVE to do all the activities in your ride either. Your guide will go over everything and if there is something you don’t want to do you just let them know. It’s really at your own pace.

If the beach isn’t your thing they also offer trail rides.

Just think of all the amazing Instagram photos you can post from your ride.

Hear more about different horseback rides on the beach for all types of experience levels (6:31) on the Experience Tampa Bay in 10 Minutes or Less podcast. You can also hear more on the top five bike trails in the Tampa Bay area (:50) and we introduce a new series of monthly street festivals called Second Fridays in Oldsmar (3:48).
