Comment: The tide was high so not much beach. The best part was swimming with the horses! My grands said that the horses were better than the jet skis and swimming with dolphins! Special shout out to Alice! They had a good knowledge of horses and their different personalities.

Comment: Our guide were Amazing! I have ridden horses before as I own 2. I unfortunately have had several surgeries so It is difficult for me to get on and off a horse. These guides were super kind and did an Amazing job helping me without making me embarrassed. My horse was a Honey and super patient. I went with 2 other ladies and we all had an Amazing time. I also Loved the fact that they use rescue horses. This in my opinion is the best place to go riding hands down! Oh and they sell shirts there...the proceeds go to the rescue horses 🐎 🥰

Comment: We did this for our honeymoon. My husband is an experienced horse rider and was so excited. I am not and was pretty nervous to ride a horse in the ocean. The horse trainers were absolutely amazing though. They made me feel so much better and we had a wonderful time. They even took plenty of pictures for us. Overall it was worth the money and something I recommend trying atleast once!

Comment: Loved my experience with C ponies. Im not sure if the real beach horses and C ponies are linked together, theyre literally right next to each other. Anyway the gals at C ponies had safety first where they paired up your experience with the personality of the horse, they explained everything completely before your ride was to begin. They took pictures along the way so you didnt have to worry about getting your phone wet. And the girls made sure that the group had a good time. I would definitely go again.

Comment: The idea of a swimming horse is unorthodox to most. However, for the brave Floridians and tourists who love a unique experience, this is the place. The surprising affordable picture deal allows riders to enjoy their time firsthand while ringleaders snap multiple photos (150+).

Comment: Absolutely amazing!!!! First time riding a horse in over 20 years, went into it freaked out. Came out of it ready to do it again. Our guide Mercedes was so awesome. Kept everyone riding calm with very clear instructions and she took really good pictures of the group. I highly recommend going out with them!

She is a very nice and helpful source of local information and I dont have any doubt that I could have touched on any topic and she would have been an easy and informed conversationalist that I was kind of reluctant to go on my way. I wish I could have touched on many more topics with her.

I love nothing more than to see someone fight back against negative reviews that have NOTHING to do with their actual experience (because most didnt have one) and everything to do With being an internet troll!Note - Ive had several friends do business with this company and had nothing but wonderful things to say.

Comment: Everyone should try this amazing beach ride with the horses. My husband and I brought our seven-year-old daughter. This experience was exceptional from start to finish. We went on a two-week vacation in three states and this was by far our favorite event from the trip.First - We are horse people and support rescue. We would not do this if it wasn’t clear the horses were treated well. The horses were well-groomed, treated kindly and the handlers had extraordinary communication skills with both the horses and riders. They staff was enthusiastic and friendly before, during and after the ride. And the horses were happy doing this - They loved the water and it genuinely was a fun experience for everyone.Second - We are very mindful of safety with horses. If you’re afraid of horses (or falling), this is the perfect place to take a stress-free ride. We actually drove out to watch a ride and ask about safety before booking for the next day. I would not have put my seven-year-old daughter on the back of a horse if I wasn’t fully confident that she would be safe. Each rider has a guide and a lead rope to hold the horse to maintain control. The children wear helmets and they offer life jackets for all ages. If my daughter had fallen (which she didn’t), she would have just landed safely in the water with a life vest and the handler would have been in control of the situation immediately. The guide doesn’t leave you alone with the horse and they maintain control the whole time so you can enjoy without fear.Finally, we had an experience like nothing else. I’ve ridden horses for years at a relatively novice level. I’m not going to wow anyone with my horse skills, but I’ve taken Western and English riding classes. This was so different. You weren’t worried about the next step to keep yourself safe or learn something new. You were just enjoying the horse and being in the water with them. The staff took tons of photos and we also were able to bring waterproof iPhone cases to take photos throughout the ride.I wish I could give more stars. This is an experience for all levels of skill and all riders. It was so special and we are so grateful to the staff and horses for making this happen. Thank you, Beach Horses! :)

Comment: Yesterday my wife and I went to ride horses sense we are on our honeymoon. The instructor Jen was so helpful and amazing to work with she taught us a lot about the horses how to ride and all the horse rescues they are apart of it was amazing. The other lady Nicole was very sweet and kind as well we had such a great experience especially my wife who has never ridden before! We love how they take care of each horse and know the history with each and everyone of them they definitely knew which horses to match everyone is our group with we couldnt have been more excited. I wanted to let everyone who reads this review to know that whoever is trying to stop this company from the horses rides in St. Petersburg is extremely wrong these people are rescuing these poor horses that are being mistreated and abused and giving them amazing homes thats AMAZING they really are INCREDIBLE for what they do! I rather keep this company going and do whatever it takes for them to keep helping them save horses rather then visiting a place (Seaworld) who captures those poor animals from their natural habitats to put them in a tank to make money thats WRONG! SAVE THE HORSES END SEAWORLD! Jennifer keep up the good work we will definitely be returning just to come and enjoy the AMAZING EXPERIENCE AND THOSE PRECIOUS HORSES!

Comment: We booked a trip with the Beach Horses the day after we got married on Anna Maria Island, and it was the perfect choice!We turned up just around the time as the sun was setting and we were the only two people booked onto the slot. We chose the swimming with horses in the water option as I have never seen this anywhere else! I unfortunately cant remember the name of the lady who took us out into Palma Sola Bay (it was a dark haired lady on the 23 May 19 at 6:45 in the evening) but she was absolutely wonderful to us both and gave us a great experience. She took loads of pictures for us to remember our wonderful experience and took the time to let us experience all the different aspects of the trip. We rode the horses out in the water and then swam with them, galloped with them and balanced on their backs (which gave us great photos!) The horses were beautiful and so chilled, I had Buster Brown who was so sweet and super chilled! My partner had Sparkles who was a little character and liked to be cheeky. I can tell the owner of these horses absolutely loves them and they love him back and it was so great to see them so well looked, especially considering how the horses were rescued. It is super reasonably priced for the experience you get and is great for all experience levels: I have never really ridden a horse before whereas my husband has substantial experience and both of us got so much out of it! If you are in the area please give these people and their beautiful horses a visit, you will have memories for life!Rachael and Byron

Comment: We had an excellent and amazing experience. We did the beach/swim ride and had a fantastic time. Each rider had a guide and we felt very safe and cared for. The horses were happy and well behaved and appeared healthy and fit. The guides were happy to take pictures for us, and made sure we were having a good time. The weather was perfect and the water was SO warm! TIP: be sure to buy a waterproof disposable camera and something waterproof to carry it in.

Comment: We booked the 2-Hour trail ride. Due to an accident with the car we were late and couldn’t call on time. Our guide Jim was waiting for us which was absolutely amazing. We were really thankful! The ride was amazing, we saw so much wildlife out on the trail from Deer to Alligators and the nature sounds from the forest and river were so relaxing. Jim has lots of knowledge and was really helpful. Even my friend who never really rode horses before had a good time. Really recommended. Great horses, great people. Thanks so much again! We will definitely come back 👍🏼

Never thought I’d “swim” on a horse. My guide Sarah was awesome & so was my horse, Rowdy! Would 100% do this again. Don’t hesitate to book!

Comment: If youre wondering whether or not to book this, book this. Dont hesitate. Dont wait. Just book this - it was the BEST experience. Without a doubt would recommend them. Many of the horses are rescues from all over the country, and theyll happily tell you all about each and every one of them. We went out with a group of 5, it was us and 2 guides - absolutely wonderful. Spent about an hour in the water with the horses, walking along the beach, trotting through the water and even letting the kids horse surf before we walked back in. Cameras are allowed and we have some amazing photos of a wonderful once in a lifetime experience.

Comment: Great adventure and perfect weather, beautiful horses and professional people in charge. ..would highly recommend, but not really for young children or inexperienced riders, these are big horses and even though they are sweet tempered, it does take some strength and experience to handle them, and dont be afraid to go in the water, because they go in deep and swim with you on back...enjoy!

Comment: I really enjoyed this but I was a little bit disappointed. The riding at the beach is almost non existent. You ride in one direction and back and thats it. They let me trot and canter for a short strech since Im not a beginner. But they wouldnt let you go for long since the whole group had to wait. I think they should let you ride longer at the beach. But i see that this is an issue since every horse and rider gets a person who leads the horse. You cant really do anything on your own.The riding in the water is pretty cool and that was an awesome experience. But then again most of the swimming was actual walking for the horse and only a short strech they would let the horse swim.All in all it is very expensive for what you get. I really enjoyed it and Im glad I did it but Im not sure if its worth the money. I wont repeat it for sure. They also didnt give you the full hour....

Comment: Its definitely worth the money. The beginning on the land is a bit slow, but once you get into the water it turns awesome. You get to stand on the horses back. Its a solid 11/10. You have a personal guide with you the whole time--one guide per rider. The horse skiing is surprisingly fun. My adolescent companion & I loved this experience.

Comment: Was the best horseback riding experience of my life. Its been almost a year since the excursion and I still talk about it. The guides are friendly, patient and make you feel comfortable. The horses, Cloud and Buster are so friendly. They even snuggled you in between rides in the water by resting their heads in your shoulder. I wanted to take them home with me. One tip is to make sure you are dresses and ready because there is no where to change at the site. So be prepared to have wet clothes in the car when you are done.

Comment: As a former racehorse, ranch horse and carriage horse trainer I was eager to fulfill my bucket list wish of cantering on the beach. My intern who is also a seasoned equestrian also wanted to canter on the beach so we signed up with BeachHorses to ride on her last weekend here in the USA. The company was very accommodating as we had four people with four levels of equine experience. My hubby had only ridden a handful of times and was a bit nervous, we had an intern that had ridden for a coupe years and then one intern who was very experienced and I who have been working with horses for over 40 years. At first I was a bit saddened by learning that we would have a guide walk with each of us and that the ride on the beach was so short, with no cantering that day as the tide and conditions were not optimal, HOWEVER, my ride was swiftly transformed into the ride of a lifetime. When we were led into the water by the guides the ride and even my whole world changed! This group of young equine guides gave us an experience we will never forget, and I mean never!!! My interns and even my husband wore grins from ear to ear the entire time we swam and played games with the horses in the Gulf of Mexico. Our guides were fun, knowledgeable, skilled, welcoming and catered to many skill levels all in one ride. This is truly the experience of a lifetime and I highly recommend this to ANYONE and EVERYONE. It does not matter if you have been riding horses your entire life or if this is your first ride EVER! This will forever be the best horseback experience of your life. My husband is a golfer and he cannot stop talking about his ride and how much he wants to do it again. Please tell them hello for us when you visit. we will be returning soon, again and again!!!
