The counter staff (the toothless balding man) is the rudest person I have ever met. He acts like your bothering him by coming there. Had my kids never ridden a horse before I would have taken my business somewhere else. Kids loved the ride but the customer service was awful. I am sure it is because they have no competition...

We decided to take a horseback ride on the beach when we were visiting relatives in Florence.

Horseback ride on the Ocean....a Bucket List must do!!! I have visited this place a few times. It is a great thing to do at least once in your life. I have also taken small children on the coral ride. Make sure you come prepared if your ride is in the afternoon and in summer...the ocean is known to be... More

Our teen daughters wanted to go on their first trail ride and we saw C&M Stables from the highway near Florence, OR. We called and made a reservation and were told the time given was our arrive time, not the ride start time. We opted for a beach ride with our teen daughters. My husband & daughters went as Beginners;... More

Hello Nancy, Thank you for one of the most insightful reviews I have ever read, for any company. You understand why we budget time between arrival and ride.

Memorial Day weekend. Did the beach ride with my husband, our 9 year old son who had never been horseback riding, and 3 other family members. Loved it! the horses are in great shape and well cared for. The selection of horse to rider capability was spot on. Thank you so much for a memorable experience!

We arrived on time but it took about 45 minutes for us to actually get going. The front desk staff wasn't very great, but some of the staff were very friendly and let us pet horses while we waited and talked to us. We did the dune ride - It was a very easy ride and our guide was very... More

Hello Faith, Thank you for reminding others to budget between 30 to 60 minutes between their Reservation or Arrival time and leaving the corral to start their ride. Like a visit to your doctor, that frustrating delay can be even worse as one ride running late pushes other rides later. We try hard, but we are not perfect. As far... More

We did not get what we expected! Our family of 5 (3 kids) arrived promptly for a 2:30 ride, but we did not get on the trail until 4. The staff kept us waiting, without explanation, while other guests filled out paperwork, etc., to join us on the ride. Instead of just taking us, they crammed as many guests as... More
