Call Charlotte Lombard in St. Lucie County Tourism....772-462-1539...for all info and application for permit.
In my opinion it seems as though, they are discouraging this practice of horses on the beach altogether, but you can all decide for yourselves.
Permits for non residents are now $200 each (used to be $100) and it is only good for 2 horses (use to be up to 8 horses).....afterwards more permits are allowed at $100 each but only for one horse....limit 3 permits (4 horses per person)......WOW!!!
Permits for residents are still only $50, but for the same terms and limitations as above.
After permit purchase a gate key or code will be given to you for access.
