Property Information

Real Estate:


Lease Terms:

You may buy our home property for $298,000. extra, or rent where the horses are located now for up to a year and eventually move them to your own location. It may be possible to rent longer if needed and we can discuss that. As I mentioned above there are other locations in the area where a person could actually develop a larger facility than what we now occupy. I would advise the set up to locate elsewhere in the area if requested to do so.

Leasehold Rent:

800/month per annum


Amelia Island is a booming tourist destination without the commercialization found elsewhere in Florida. It is perfect for beach riding!

Premises Details:

Pristine white sandy beaches with rolling surf and room to open up the horse and let her fly!

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

The sky is the limit here but I am getting older and the joints not so limber to continue on. One could consider increasing the amount of business by adding another string of horses, a truck, tack and trailer. We continued to expand the profit potential. For example, we grossed $71,000 in 2014, $161,000 in 2015, $195,000 in 2016 and $216,000 in 2017! Since 2017 I have reduced the amount of rides while waiting for this business to sell as my body can only endure so much riding. You may ramp it up again after you take over.

Competition / Market:

Only one competitor at this location. There is another elsewhere on the island but we have outpaced them both. We offer only registered Tennessee Walking Horses for a beautiful smooth ride. Our horses are not head to butt. People can walk or canter their horse depending on their skill level. This is what many are looking for that puts us ahead of any competition. We received an excellent review in the April 2016 issue of The Trail Rider magazine. They reviewed all beach riding businesses in the USA and listed only 14 Unforgettable Beach Rides. We were the only business to be listed from Amelia Island and the only one on the Atlantic Ocean in all of Florida as well!

Reasons for selling:

I am retiring as my body cannot handle all the riding I used to do.

Trading hours:

We run 5.5 days a week with double shifts going out morning and evening while taking off Sunday and Wednesday evening.

No employees.
Years established:
In the riding business 10+ years. The first 2 years in NY giving trail rides in the Finger Lakes National Forest and the last 8 years giving rides on Amelia Island, FL.

Other Information

Support & training:

We will train over 2 weeks to transition the take over and be available for guidance by phone for another 2 weeks after that. We want the buyer to succeed and take it even farther than we did!

Inventory / Stock value:
$75,000 (USD) - included in the asking price
