Horseback Riding


Whenever we're looking for an enjoyable family activity, we find a ride through the Sea Pines Nature Preserve to be both fun and relaxing. Sometimes we spot an alligator basking in the sun or maybe we see a huge spider web between two trees.

When my wife's sister brought her young son to Hilton Head, we got some wonderful photographs of him riding the ponies. Kids seem to get a big kick out of the animals and make horseback riding one of their essential activities during our vacations.

The horses at Sea Pines are of excellent quality and have had very good care. We often see them lounging in the fields when we're on our way to South Beach Marina or Harbour Town.

We try to schedule a cooler time than in midsummer for horseback riding, although the preserve is well shaded and cool 'most any time.
