Great World Adventures
This ride compares to no other. It is literally the only ride of its kind in the world.
You will have an opportunity to ride a horse that’s walking in the water and actually swimming! You might even have a few wild dolphins swim by you! We usually have groups of 2-6 riders with 1 or 2 mounted guides.
This ride takes place just before or after our low tides, so there might not be a lot of beach to ride on.
These rides are available for children as young as 10 and riders who weigh up-to 300 lbs. [Note: Children ages 3+ can do our Thrill Ride.]
Our horses are mostly rescue horses. We only use Certified BeachHorses–trained by us,–who enjoy being in the water. We prefer horses that are well-bred and professionally trained, but we are not limited to a single breed of horse. We are not horse breeders.
Second, we have a tremendous staff of talented guides.
Locals have been riding horses at Palma Sola Bay since the 1950’s. It’s a Bradenton tradition and folks love seeing the horses at they drive out to Anna Maria Island.
We use water-proof western-style saddles and custom-made waterproof bridles. Helmets and life jackets are provided for no additional charge.
All tickets are fully refundable up to 30 days prior to the day of your ride. Within 30 days of your ride, we will refund 50% of your ticket price up to 72 hours before the scheduled start time of your ride. At 72 hours (3 days) your money goes hard and will not be refunded under any circumstances. Please don’t ask us for a refund within 72 hours of your ride.
If we are forced to cancel your ride for any reason, we will reschedule you immediately or send you an electronic gift card that never expires; but, under no circumstances will we issue a refund.
You must be present and ready to ride at the scheduled start of your ride to be eligible for a gift card. If you are a “no show”, you will forfeit your money.
Please call us if you have any questions.
