Kelly Seahorse Ranch

We are blessed to have enjoyed many, many years of service to the thousands of park visitors over the world who enjoyed our tours and made memories of a lifetime on our safe horses. After long and careful consideration of many factors, we have decided to close our barn doors and ride off into the sunset to retire on our homestead ranch. We are proud to be known and hope to always be remembered as part of the culture and nostalgia of Amelia Island holding the unique rite of passage and history of freely riding horses on our beautiful beaches. Farewell and a heartfelt thank you to all who helped us make the Kelly Seahorse Ranch a success for 23 years. 

Best regards and happy trails,

The Kellys
Kelly Ranch, Inc.

The Kelly Seahorse Ranch is the premier beach horseback riding outfit for Amelia Island and Greater Jacksonville and, because of the uniqueness of our services, has become a destination attraction across the globe. We are a family business, and horses have been our lifetime commitment. Our ranch is exclusively endorsed by the the Florida Park Service (DEP) and are nestled within the maritime forest of the Amelia Island State Park at the southernmost end of the island. A gorgeous trail ride from the ranch takes you directly out to ride miles of beach along the park’s pristine Atlantic shore. This is considered to be a “bucket list” item for many and is listed as one of the top things to do on the island.  You don’t want to skip this activity.
