Galveston Island Horse & Pony Rides ("GIHPR") was founded by long time Galvestonians who worked diligently to bring together their three great passions, horses, the Gulf-Coast, and public service. This union of passions blossomed into a public horseback riding experience along a beautiful Texas beach that only Galveston Island can offer. We have carefully selected and trained our horses to provide you with an enjoyable ride along the Texas beachfront that you can mark off of your bucket-list. Our staff are experienced, professional, and kind horseman that love horses and will share that passion with you. We look forward to riding with y’all on Galveston Island.

The horse rides will be closed for the duration of Mardi Gras February 22 - March 5

Don’t miss the revelry at Mardi Gras! Galveston! The island comes alive with extravagant parades, more than 50 galas and festive events, bead throwing, exhibits, live entertainment in local clubs, and the best Gulf Coast cuisine in the world. One of the most popular annual events to take place in Texas.
