Riding on the beach in Florida is a fantastic experience and not to be missed. Some beaches allow you to bring your own horses while others require you to sign up with a beach riding company. Florida provides many opportunities for beach riding including both coasts and the Florida Panhandle.
Temperature in Florida
It is hot in Florida in the summertime, so most riders just wear T-shirts and jeans. Winter time temperatures can be chilly, especially in northern Florida, so check the weather to be sure you will be comfortable. The best practice is to layer clothes since cool morning temperatures often give way to warmer afternoon temperatures.
Horseback Riding Attire
Florida Horseback riding requires appropriate clothing and you will want to wear long pants such as blue jeans. Shoes or boots should have heels that will keep your feet from slipping through the stirrups.
T-shirts are popular but long sleeve shirts can offer protection from the sun as can a wide brimmed cowboy hat.
Renting Horses in Florida
Many Florida stables will rent horses by the hour for riders to ride on their own. Of course you must have basic riding skills and knowledge of the area where you will be riding.
For those just starting out with horses, most stables offer riding lessons that include individual and group instructions. But be careful, horseback riding is very addictive and many do not kick the habit for an entire lifetime.
