Thank you for the response but you must have ridden with Equine Adventures. Our ride is a full hour on the beach without going through the woods. I am glad that you had a great time.

Thank you for your review. We have such fun meeting all of our riders/guests. Just to clarify for others, the ride is for one hour with everyone getting the amount of ride time they desire.

This was a very relaxing, beautiful way to enjoy the beach. The horses are incredibly calm and peaceful, and the the owners are very friendly and helpful. If you want to find different way to enjoy the beach, this would be the way to go.

This is a perfect outing for young kids or inexperienced riders. Jeff is patient and the horses are well-behaved. We took 3 girls ages 9, 6 and 5. Our 5 year old was hesitant and decided to walk along side. The girls wouldn't let us...More

We normally fill up early in the week. The weather forecast calls for rain most days in the summer months but rarely does it cause us to cancel our rides. If you book early in the week, we can usually reschedule you if rain... More
