This was fun for my whole family, of every skill level! Being an experienced rider and my family not, I was worried that this might be a bit boring for me, because usually stables strictly assign their most conditioned and desensitized horses for people to ride. But I was surprised when the guides paired us up with horses according to... More

We made a reservation and came to C&M stables for a two hour beach ride while we were on vacation in Florence. The staff were friendly, professional and accommodating. They suggested that we wear warm clothes, a hat, and to bring a camera with a strap. Horses were assigned to us based on experience, after we had filled out our... More

Visited C&M Stables on a great day in October 2015 and did the two hour beach ride. The grounds, the corral, the waiting area were immaculate. After completing normal release type paperwork and then talking to me about my skill level, they picked great horses for both my husband and me. A

As I drove over the Coast Range from Eugene to Florence the windshield wipers went from occasional to full force and back to ‘off’ over and over during the 60 mile drive. I worried what it would be like to horseback ride from C&M Stables to the beach. I was hosting two Swiss tour operators for their first trip to... More

Hello Meg, Thanks for illuminating a topic I call Weather Or Not. That is, weather is local and one can drive out of rain and 10 miles later find sunshine, particularly along the Oregon coast. Every year in fall, winter and spring, we have guests pass up some of the best riding days of the year out of concern for... More

My boyfriend and I went for the 2 hour trail/beach ride and had a wonderful time! My boyfriend proposed to me on the beach and the C&M guide caught the whole thing on camera, which was greatly appreciated! The ride itself was a lot of fun, and we got to trot on the beach.

I'm not against size restrictions for horseback riding; I understand the need. But C & M Stables needs to mention that THEY DO HAVE SIZE RESTRICTIONS somewhere, anywhere, on their website or on their forms. I'm 250 and 5'9", and when I called to make reservations, I was told that with my weight, I would have to be at least... More
