Amelia Island Horseback Riding
I actually live off of Amelia Island and trailer my horses to Peters Point Beach Front Park on S. Fletcher Ave. where I meet my riders and ride on the beach. Since I trailer my horses I can only accommodate 2-3 riders at a time. Contact me for times and availability. During the fall and winter I am very flexible... the best time is at low tide! It is a very personalized ride geared to the riding capability of my riders. So you may get to experience trotting and cantering on the waters edge! Bring a camera.... I would love to capture your moments.
