All reviews brie experienced riders horseback riding bucket list comfort level amelia island experience level excellent ride her friend beautiful scenery awesome experience great morning stan tennessee nikki beach company
Though it was a windy day, the ride was great! Stan, our guide, was very friendly, & the horses were well-trained. My daughter had high hopes for the experience & those were exceeded!
Average price, which may seem like a lot, but worth it -...More
Nearly 4 years after a fall from one of the horses, on December 31, 2014, and I am still having back and tush problems. Stan did not properly tighten the saddle and I fell (on pavement!) before we'd even made it to the beach. Stan's...More

This was on my bucket list forever ...I have one daughter who rides and has also wanted to try this and another daughter who was pleasantly surprised that she enjoyed it! Stan was a pleasure and the horses beautiful and calm, all mares and they...More
I ask for a calm slow horse. I had to hold back on mine the entire ride because he was trying to run. Worker was not engaged with the riders. Beach was too congested with cars and people. Our ride was cut way short of...More

With all the great reviews we get I am surprised you didn't enjoy your ride. We always mention when asked that you are on the horse for an hour, but that doesn't mean the ride is an hour as we do give a brief lesson...More
