GUIDED HORSE RIDES ON THE BEACH


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.
