Horseback riding can be thrilling whether up mountain trails or down country lanes, but perhaps the most incredible place to ride a horse is on a beach. Many beaches on the east coast no longer allow horseback riding. Hutchinson Island, in Southeast Florida, does.
Hutchinson Island has 21 miles of unspoiled beach. The white sands are bordered by the cobalt-blue waters of the Atlantic and sable palms. Walking these beaches is relaxing and romantic. Riding horseback on them is unforgettable.
The St. Lucie County’s Parks and Recreation Department offers horseback riding trips most Sundays. These excursions last 90 minutes, and depart from the Frederick Douglass Memorial Park on South Hutchinson Island.
It’s easy to have a romantic getaway at a Florida Bed and Breakfast – they inherently lend themselves to such things. But if you’re looking to really woo your sweetie, invite him or her to go horseback riding on the beaches of Hutchinson Island.
