Virginia Beach | Outer Banks (OBX) Horseback is a fun and caring...

Virginia Beach | Outer Banks (OBX) Horseback is a fun and caring organization that is here to help provide a better understanding of the bond that is established between man and horse. We have already rescued & retrained over 30 horses since Chase Foster took over the business in 2010. These horses were deemed unmanageable by their previous owners and now the men were looking to make a quick buck off the animal by selling to the highest bidder, slaughter chains and all. Our mission at these auctions is to find these horses and save as many as we can. The "unmanageable" horses come to the farm with all the spirit of a wild mustang. Here our goal is not to break the spirit completely, but find a safe way for us to communicate commands to the powerful creature in a way that can't hurt them or us. It's exhausting work, but with a lot of persistence, eventually they do seem to understand through our training and watching the other horses in action, that we are only here to help them succeed in life. Every customer that comes to support our business and experience their own bond on the beach, is ultimately helping us save and care for even more of these amazing animals.

While on our honeymoon my husband and I did the horseback riding on the beach, and did it at night, to see the Christmas lights. It was wonderful! Even though it was chilly on the night we went, it was still money and time well spent. I got to ride Cupid, who was wonderful. She was very gentle and seemed... More

We absolutely loved our experience at Virginia Beach Horseback. Chase and his staff are second to none. They are so friendly and made the experience special and super fun. The horses are also second to none. Very well trained, groomed, and the sweetest horses. Not only are they beautiful and friendly, they are very easy to ride. We felt like... More

My 7 year old daughter and I took a 30 minute ride followed by a 60 minute ride. They were super nice and talked to us during the ride. Our horses walked at different speeds plus I trotted some so my daughter and I weren't constantly next to each other, but I wasn't worried because they made sure she was... More

OBX is located right on the beach next to King Neptune statue. Horses are beautiful and happy. Guides love what they do and look happy too. Riders had to wear helmets. At first, I was assigned Cupid, which is the most beautiful horse. But then due to customers with young kids, we had to change horses and I got Trigger.... More

We went as a Girlfriend Adventure as part of a good friends reunion weekend. Originally booked for Fri sunset, they were so helpful in switching us to Saturday to avoid forecasted rain as Fri got closer. Excellent customer service from website to phone call to in person assistance the day of the ride. We loved our guides and our horses,... More
