They really do a good job at choosing the right horse for each rider. My daughter and I loved our experience and the horses we rode. You ride through the woods, go through water and then arrive at the beach. They give you the opportunity to canter on the beach or walk. It is up to the rider. My daughter... More

Went on a trail ride last weekend as I've always wanted to ride on the beach. The guides (Maggie and Debbie) were great and making everyone feel comfortable. They matched us with the right horses etc. It was a good 3 hour ride so not too shabby for the price of $100. I would definitely do it again - enjoyed... More

Great experience and they are very good at catering to all levels of experience. It was well worth the 1.5 hour drive from Kitty Hawk and would definitely do again.

A great time! I took my mom (62 YO & a first time rider). She was a little apprehensive and nervous but the guides and mellow horse soon made her feel comfortable. The trail ride is closer to 3 hours rather than the 2 hours listed on the website. The ride through the coastal woods was fun. Riding the horses... More

We were lucky enough to have perfect weather for the three hour ride. I'm an experienced rider and was assigned a perfectly delightful mare, well trained, very responsive, and well suited to my abilities. A beautiful ride through forest and up to the beach. Once on the beach, my mare was a eager to go and I had an incredible... More

I have been wanting to do this horseback ride since I vacationed here in '08 and we just never got around to it during that trip. This time, I made sure we got to do it! Horseback riding on the beach is as awesome as it sounds! And the cost of $100/person cannot be beat for the amount of time... More

Wonderful trail ride and cantering on the beach. Well trained horses and customer friendly staff. Would highly recommend this activity. Only advise...take the bug spray! Lots of mosquitoes. But even that doesn't put a damper on the experience.

My family rode here...great ride! My daughter and I have riding experience, this ride is great for all levels. The guides we had.. Rachel and Rachel were awesome, the horses were amazing. Long ride -beach and woods, well worth the money. Great place highly recommend.. my daughter went back for a second ride during the week and got a discount!
