You need to do some reseach about the keys on the Florida Keys & Key West forums. The beaches in the keys are barely large enough for people let alone horses. Most of the beaches are man made and the natural ones have a coral shoreline that would ruin a horses hoofs even with shoes. There is very little Beach horse riding in Florida. I think there may be some on the gulf coast and also in north Florida at Amelia Island. There they have large wide sandy beaches.

I could be completely wrong but over the years I have only seen a few horses in the keys. I felt very sorry for them due to the heat. There are very few places to even ride and it's extremly hot in the summer, it would not be enjoyable.
