Horseback Riding on the Beach 5/6/09 - 7pm

Horseback Riding on the Beach  - Treat yourself to an hour of bliss riding an absolutely beautiful and gentle horse along the lovely, palm-lined beaches of Palma Sola Bay. Then ride your horse as it wades and swims in the blue water.

Use the order form above to purchase tickets. You will receive a confirmation email with directions. Print it out and bring it with you to the beach.

Who can participate?  Horseback riding on the beach is a fully customized experience. We have accommodated everyone from children as young as 3 to disabled senior citizens. Our only restriction is that you must weight under 240 lbs.

You will ride bareback (no saddle). We now use bareback pads which are more comfortable than sitting directly on the horse and provide you with something to hold onto (but no stirrups). English and western-style saddles are availabe for a small extra charge, but cannot be taken into the salt water.

Swimming with Horses is offered exclusively in Florida by Great World Nature Tours. If you've never been on a swimming horse, you must try it at least once. It's so much fun and a fantastic photo-op. 

Photographs and Videos - Professional-quality still images and videos (see below) are available for $49.95 per hour. Prints and enlargements available for purchase through the online gallery.

Horse Surfing - If you weigh less than 110 lbs and wish to try standing up on your horse (totally optional), we will teach you how to horse surf like a local for no extra charge. Horse Surfing was invented right here in Bradenton, FL!

Pricing - The Regular price is $69.95 per person. Regular tickets are available up to 18 hours before the event. The Students+ Discount price is available for students, active duty military, and first responders ONLY (I.D. Required). This ticket is available up to 7 days priort to the event.

Ticket Availability - We have a limited number of tickets availabe for each event. If the Quantity shows N/A, that type of ticket is not available. Select another type of ticket or use your back button to find another event.

New! - If you are concerned about weather or scheduling conflicts, we now offer a fully Refundable ticket for $84.95 per person. In addition, for the same amount, we now offer a Last Minute ticket up to 3 hours prior to the event.

Other Options - Not sure what you want or when you want to ride? Consider a Gift Certificate or a Private Ride.

You will have a great time riding these well-trained horses in such a beautiful setting. Did I mention that wild dolphins sometimes swim with us? Amazing!
