If you love animals and are looking for an adventure this summer, you might want to head to Bradenton, Florida. One of the hottest activities under the sun is horse surfing.
At Great World Adventures you can learn how to become an aqua-equestrian. What's that mean? Imagine riding "a gentle and water-loving horse" down the beach and into the waters of beautiful Palma Sola Bay... shoulder deep. After learning the basics from the staff, it's time to surf. You attempt to stand up and balance while the horse walks through the water.
When the 1 hour adventure is over, you swim with the horses and then race them out of the bay and back onto the sand. Prime horse surfing season is late spring to early fall. The cost is $119.95 per person. Great World Adventures also offers horse skiing.
