Not everyone wants to honeymoon in OBX in March, but they don't know what they're missing. There was no problem booking this guided tour via phone and the scenery was not to be missed. Sellers, our guide, was friendly and knowledgeable and the serenity of the beach at this time of year was just what we needed to unwind and... More

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
