This was a BUCKET LIST item for me. We are a family of riders (we own and show). We were really looking g forward to this EXPENSIVE endeavor. The guides were WONDERFUL, and fun. However, they were late, so no "sunrise pictures" as promised.also, despite the forms I filled out for skill,horse size, age, saddle, they were unorganized. Aside from... More

This was my daughter's second time riding with BeachHorses and she had just as much fun as the first! It is an amazing, unique experience that left her smiling and talking about it for days.

Our Daughter had an amazing time on the beach. Her previous riding experience allowed her to be without a Guide for most of the activities which was great. Watching our Daughter do all of the amazing horse activities was a wonderful experience for us and her. Would highly recommend this activity.

Took my horse loving daughter and her best friend here for her 12th birthday. They had the time of their lives. Everything was perfect! They're already asking to go back.

My 15 year old daughter and I did the beach horses ride at sunrise a couple of weeks ago. It was so much fun that she is already planning to come back with her friends on her birthday! She is a rider and comfortable on horses so she cantered on the beach, and participated in all of the water adventures.... More
