Our Flagler Beach Hotel is Best for Horseback Riding on the Beach

Flagler Beach is known for its old world charm—a part of Florida that hasn’t changed much over the years. When you stay at our Flagler Beach Hotel you’ll be within walking distance to our private beach. As always, one of the best ways to explore this paradise is on horseback. Here are some details on Equestrian Adventures of Florida and how to plan the most amazing day at Flagler Beach.

  • First things first, you’ll want to get your reservation set up with Equestrian Adventures of Florida.
  • Pick from an array of horseback riding packages and adventures. They offer beach rides, as well as scenic rugged trails through old Oak forests, Florida State Park tours, or even custom outings to best suit your plans. There’s really a style of tour for everyone. 
  • Tours are at least an hour, but all-day adventures are possible for those interested in a long trip to take in the gorgeous views of the beach, stopping for a picnic lunch, and really spending time bonding with your horse. You’ll saunter along the coast, weave in and out of the waves, and don’t forget to grab that selfie!
  • What to expect of the animals: Past guests rave about the responsive and gentle horses. These animals are well-trained and seasoned tour guides. Their herd consists of 19 horses of different breed and size to accommodate all experience levels and riders.
  • If you’re on a romantic getaway at our Flagler Beach Hotel, the best horseback riding package for you is the “Romantic Beach Ride.” A special tour, just for two, that can be planned with your specific vision in mind. They’ve even planned  marriage proposals with guests!

If you’d love to spend more time with animals and learn about the history of the Palm Coast, a trip to the Florida Agricultural Museum is in order. The 450-acre park offers wooded trails for horseback riding that wind you around a lake and over a wildlife bridge spanning the highway. You’ll pass by historical buildings and heritage livestock. Stop by the non-profit museum for an interesting historical lesson in the agricultural past of Florida and you’ll even get to pet some of cute four-legged residents.

After your adventure horseback riding on the beach, you’ll want to eat! Head to the newly renovated Oceanside Beach Bar and Grill, just a 15 minute walk up the beach from our Flagler Beach Hotel. Heaping baskets of beer battered fish and chips, butter-poached lobster rolls, and fun and fruity cocktails are just a taste of the large lunch and dinner menu, which can all be enjoyed on the large beach front patio or inside with the AC cranked up on high.
