My family and I rode with this company last year, and we had a great time. You get to ride through the woods first which was fun because being at the beach you don't realize all that is there. Then we got to the beautiful...More

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
