The beaches of Hutchinson Island in Fort Pierce are proud to be one of the only places within the state of Florida that permits horseback riding on the beach! The beaches designated for this activity are secluded, rustic, and picturesque. It is the perfect opportunity for the family to embark on an unforgettable adventure or the perfect setting for a couple to solidify their commitment with a marriage proposal (many engagements happen here!). In addition, many other parks and preserves in St. Lucie have been equipped with equestrian trials and amenities to explore on horseback. Please call (772) 462-1521 for more information.
