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.

I have never ridden a horse before and they helped me feel comfortable with very basic horse back riding. It was a complete thrill and a pleasure to ride along the beach with the ocean waves and seagulls! The horses were sweet and well taken care of too. I recommend Virginia Beach Horseback to people of all experience levels with... More

Surprised my wife for her birthday. She loved it! Staff was extremely nice and very knowledgeable. They make you feel really comfortable and match you up with the right horse for your experience level. They don't mind answer any questions you might have and stay with you the whole time and keep an eye on you and the horses. I... More

I had the pleasure of doing the 1 hour beach trail ride this past weekend while I was attending a conference in Va Beach. I was so impressed by the owner and the staff, with their knowledge and love of the horses. Safety was a priority, as all the riders were required to wear helmets. The horses themselves were very...

An amazing experience and memory I will treasure forever. My mom is 74 years old with a total hip replacement and a total knee replacement. I called ahead of time to see if she would be able to ride a horse on the beach, a bucket lister for her. They assured me this would be ok. When we arrived, Chase... More

I took my wife out for a day on the beach little did she know we would be riding horses. The staff was great. They helped a new York city guy learn how to ride a horse. They showed me how to control the horse and even walked with us to make sure we was okay. The smile on my... More

My husband and I just went yesterday and we loved it! We did the hour long ride in Virginia Beach along the beach. It was an amazing experience and we were lucky enough the weather ended up being beautiful too. The horses were so sweet, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had no experience prior to this,... More

My fiance and I drove to Va Beach for a couples weekend. We met the wonderful staff, and Lee explained everything while taking incredible photos of us for a great memory of riding the beautiful horses! It was truly the highlight of the time spent! Thomas Davidson Richmond, Va.

The staff was courteous, knew their stuff and was very kind to Katie. She loved the ride and her horse. She can't wait to do it again at the Outer Banks location.

I loved my horseback riding experience over Christmas so much I took my six year old nephew with me when he came to visit at New Years. Its a pricey activity, but worth it, for a vacation activity. The staff is very professional, the pictures turn out great, the horses are wonderful (trail horses, all are tame) They match your... More
