Enjoy the adventure of a lifetime on Anna Maria Island – SWIMMING with horses

Horseback riding across silver sands is the stuff of dreams but visitors to our Anna Maria Island vacation rentals can go one step further – they can SWIM with horses.

This once-in-a-lifetime experience is offered by C Ponies, an AMI leisure company with a big heart.

Most of their horses are rescue animals nurtured back to health and wellbeing.

These magnificent creatures are your companions for a ride along the island’s silver sands – the perfect place to spot wildlife including dolphins and manatees.

You then enjoy an experience that will stay with you forever, and amaze your friends, the opportunity to ride a horse as it swims in the ocean.

You will be in waters no more than 3ft deep but will feel a sensation described as ‘like flying’. Hold on to your trusty stead’s mane as their legs move rhythmically through the water.

The horses are never forced to swim, it’s actually their favourite bit, according to C Ponies. You can add extra magic by choosing the sunset package.

The firm offers other riding adventures, too, such as exploring the Deer Prairie Creek Preserve Ride.

C Ponies is just one of many amazing leisure experiences you can enjoy on AMI. Browse our Idyllic Holiday Properties vacation rentals to book your stay and make this part of a magical holiday experience.
