Offered exclusively on Daufuskie Island, ride on our remote, picture-perfect beaches with Daufuskie Trail Rides October through March. In our summer months, ride along the oceanfront, enjoying the beautiful views and wildlife.
This one and one-half hour ride is designed to accommodate all levels of riders, from beginners to advanced.
Start your day with a gorgeous ride to Daufuskie Island on either the Daufuskie Island Ferry or May River Excursions’ Water Taxi. Once you arrive to Daufuskie, a Tour Daufuskie representative will meet you at the landing with a golf cart to explore the island before and after the trail ride.
Your ride will begin with a 15-minute walk from the stable to Daufuskie Trail Ride’s beach, where you’ll have the chance to ride along the Atlantic Ocean. Please note, riding on the sand is limited in the summer months due to sea turtle nesting season. This breathtaking ride often includes spotting dolphins and various birds along the way.
Morning rides begin at 11:00 and afternoon rides begin at 3:00. Both transportation options will get your party to the island an hour before the ride. This gives you enough time to grab a coffee or snack and arrive to Daufuskie Trail Ride’s Barn to get ready for the ride. Your group will also have time after the ride to explore on your way back to the boat. If an hour isn’t enough, choose the cart extension option and stay the day. Exploring the beach on horseback is just one of the many wonderful aspects of Daufuskie Island. Your party can choose to stay after the tour, or come early, to get lunch, check out Daufuskie’s local artisan scene, or see the rich history and unique culture of Daufuskie Island.
