We are staying on Marco Island next April and would love to find somewhere close by for my daughter to go for a hack out either on the beach or somewhere you can canter/gallop. any suggestions?

I've been going to Marco for 25 years and have never seen a horse. You do realize that horses or even dogs for that matter are not allowed on the beach?

As far as something nearby, I don't know of anything either. I did, however, do a quick google search (it's a great tool that google) and found this.....it looks like it would be about 1 1/2 to 2 hours away.....

Hi, yes I realise Marco wouldnt have horses on the pristine beaches but wondered if other areas neaby do hacks out to small beaches. Otherwise happy to hack (trail ride) inland a bit. I have googled quite a few stables around Naples but they seem to only want to take adults on trail rides?? My daughter is 14 and experienced.

I hope you find what you're after. Maybe they are reluctant to let a 14 year old do hacks for legal reasons. Good luck!

I would contact the stables directly to inquire about the age. I've never heard of a place that doesn't allow kids. Also ask if the riders are allowed to canter or gallop. Many places don't go faster than a trot. And most use Western saddles, not English.

We holidayed on Anna Maria a couple of years ago so want to do something further south, closer to Marco really. Having trouble getting logged on to the Rockin N Stables website, but MH stables at Naples looks worth a visit! Thanks for your help.
