There’s nothing quite as fun and relaxing as a beach vacation. The fresh smell of the water, gorgeous sandy shorelines, and serene atmosphere make for a truly memorable and rejuvenating trip. If you want to have the ultimate beach vacation experience though, you need to add a little something special to your time away—like a horseback ride!
Amelia Island, Florida is a treasured vacation destination for naturalists, conservationists, paradise-seeking families, and adventure-loving couples alike. With the help of Happy Trails Walking Horses, you can soak up the sun and stunning views on horseback.
Amelia Beach Horseback Rides: The Perfect Activity for All Occasions
Taking in the beauty of Amelia Beach from the back of one of our Tennessee Walking Horses is a magical experience like no other. The backdrop of the white sand, sparkling blue waters, and lush forest in the distance will leave a lasting, breathtaking impression on everyone in your party. Our horses are bred to walk with their original gait, which means you’ll be gliding smoothly along the shores instead of trotting.
Are you and your family celebrating something special? We’ll help you celebrate in style! Turn a beach ride into a full afternoon by bringing your own picnic lunch and blanket to enjoy after your ride is over. We’ll have the perfect spot picked out for you. Our guides can even teach you basic horsemanship and horseback riding, if you’re looking for something interesting to learn on your vacation.
What to Expect from Your Amelia Beach Horseback Ride
When you arrive for your experience, the guides from Happy Trails Walking Horses will take you on a one-hour beach journey, we have a ten minute standing still lesson with you on the horse, which is part of the hour. Starting at the Peter’s Point meeting place, your group will travel down Amelia Island’s pristine shoreline on your impressive Tennessee Walking Horses (some of whom are direct descendants of Roy Roger’s famous Trigger). We can capture photos of your horseback riding adventure for you, or you’re welcome to bring your own camera.
