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.

called same day and got a reservation on the dune trail ride because the beach/trail rides were all booked. Super nice and very patient staff instructed us and led the ride. Narrow sandy trails through the dune vegetation, incredible sunny weather - all made for a beautiful, very fun time for my daughter and I. First time on a horse... More

Hello Rose, Thanks for your delightful review of our Dune Trail ride. I agree that our Dune Trail rides are a great way to spend some time on a horse while touring the coastal forest and ever changing sand dunes immediately inland from the Pacific Ocean. We look forward to having you return for our Beach Ride, where you will... More

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

Hello Lisa, I am sorry we disappointed you, and I thank you for your suggestion. I discussed your recommendation with our web designer and we plan to add height and weight guidance when next we update our website. Let me elaborate on this sensitive subject. We do not have a hard and fast rule on size restrictions. Our standard question... More

The people, the horses, the views - I've never experienced anything so wonderful!. The walk through the woods on wonderfully narrow trails was haunting, then out to the dunes where the horses had to climb through soft sand till we reached the beach. We were able to trot freely till it was time to return. 2 hours of pure joy.

Hello Kate, Thank you for your wonderful review. I was pleased to learn you enjoyed the trail ride out to the beach, as well as the beach portion of the ride. Personally, I believe starting our rides with some trail time allows our guests the opportunity to get comfortable with their horses before riding up and over the last dune... More

We spent just over two hours on horseback for a beach ride. It was a beach were there were no others out there, and it was beautiful. The group was less than 15 so it was a good trip. A little windy, but one should expect that on the OR coast. Highly recommend it if you are in the area.... More

Hello Gwen, Thanks for helpful comments from an experienced reviewer. I appreciated your point that we ride on a beach rarely used by others. Yes, it can be windy on the beach, but no problem if prepared. Like you, many of our guests are discovering that C&M Stables is worth the beautiful sea coast drive down from Lincoln City. Those...

Very beautiful setting. Everyone was very nice from check in, to the actual ride. They took their time finding the right horse for each rider. They were very organized and horses were very well trained. Even kids with no experience were able to go on rides and the trainers helped with guiding. We really enjoyed our experience and would go... More

We did the 1.5 hour dunes / beach ride. The staff were very friendly and kept the group engaged. The scenery was beautify and the family really enjoyed it.

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. The guides Emily and Sarah were very helpful for all of the riders in our group and even though the beach portion was very windy we had a great time.
