We had a wonderful experience! The trainers were really knowledgeable and friendly, the horses were so sweet and the trainers were very focused on making sure the horses were happy which we really appreciated!

I took my six year old daughter here while vacationing on AMI. I was pretty sure she would enjoy it, but it was one the coolest experiences I’ve had in awhile. If you love horses, I would highly recommend Beach Horses!

Lots of fun. Great time. I am looking forward to riding Beach Horses again next year. I come to visit my grandparents every year and they plan something special. This was my favorite time of all. I hope I can bring a friend next year.

My two seven year old daughters rode. That had a blast. The majority of the time was in the water. Staff was professional and knowledgeable.

I booked this as a birthday gift for my son. My son's girlfriend came along as well. We all had a great time riding the horses. I was intriqued with the different personalities of all of the horses.

Apologies for not responding sooner. Each horse has a guide at all times. All activities on the horses are explained and are all voluntary. All of yours should do just great!

Yes, but only if you live on the Virginia side of State Street. :-) Just kidding. Sometimes we offer special deals in the spring and fall.
