Horseback Trail & Beach Rides in Amelia Island, FL at Happy Trails Walking Horses

Tennessee Walking Horse Rides on Amelia Beach

Our customers get to experience more than just a basic beach ride. With Happy Trails, you get to experience a wonderful horse breed called Tennessee Walking Horse operated by a family of 3 generations being involved. We assign a horse to you so you have a great ride with a horse suited to you. Once on your horse, we teach you how to ride our horses in a short riding and safety lesson, then your Guide leads you out to the beautiful beach that awaits you!

Horseback riding on the beach sounds like a dream, doesn’t it? After all, what better way is there to experience the unique tranquility and beauty of the ocean than by gilding along the shoreline atop a magnificent animal? Well, if you’re looking to make that dream a reality, we’ve got the perfect opportunity for you!

If you’ve always wanted to travel on horseback, you would be hard-pressed to find a gentler companion than a Tennessee Walking Horse. The breed is famous for its calm demeanor, and steady and even gait. We had been breeding these friendly and loving horses for many years and we bred them to maintain their original gait. No cruelty training or conditioning involved. With these beautiful animals taking you along the shore of Amelia Island State Park, you’ll be treated to what we like to call the “Cadillac of rides.”

Visitors of Amelia Island looking for things to do on our laidback shores can enjoy the shores of rolling dunes and beautiful water by horseback riding on Amelia Beach. At Happy Trails Walking Horses, we offer a unique adventure on horseback as a beach ride, on the original plantation horse—the Tennessee Walking Horse.

Client Testimonials

Visiting from Illinois. Have our own horses but wanted to ride on the beach. Fell in love with a horse named Thunder. These horses are well cared for and clearly loved. Our guide, Nikki, was awesome! She knew what horse to put each person on and safety was a priority for her! The ride out to the beach and on the beach was beautiful! We did the 930am ride and wore jackets because it was a little cool. It’s refreshing to go on a ride where the horses don’t follow each other nose to butt. I would highly recommend this ride! It was a great time!

I grew up riding but never on the beach. While on vacation here, I wanted to share the joy of horses with my teenage daughter and am thrilled I did. Was enchanting! Thank you Lee to you and your niece for making my daughter’s first riding experience so wonderful.
