We did the 2 hour ride on 8/28/2015. It was great to ride over the first sand dune and be met with the Pacific Ocean for as far as you could see. I thought the ride along the beach (about 40 min) was fun and it was great to watch the huge waves come in. The ride then turned inland... More

A pleasant, slow walk from the pen on the bay side, over the dunes, onto the beach. An incredible setting. The ride leader had things under control. Great with kids, 12 & 8. Would have preferred to trot a little, not just walk, and a little more education about horses and the location.

Very nice people running this operation and they cater for both experienced riders and nervous novices. After selecting horses for each riders ability you ride out through dunes and along the wide beach area. They take everyone's photos and constantly monitor everyone's progress. As an experienced rider I would have liked to gallop along the beach but that would not... More

We've done a few vacation horseback rides, and this was the best. My 7 and 9 year olds were just off of a week-long horse camp, so, of course, they were eager to ride some more. Our week on the coast happened to be wet and rainy, but we lucked into skies that stayed clear enough for our hour-long ride.... More

We went there to relax, go out to dinner and walk the beach. I would have liked a little more sun but the view was so breathtaking that took the place of the sun.

Manzanita has been our regular late summer vacation spot for over a decade and Oregon Beach Rides is one of the highlights of the trip. Right up there with Hug Beach and Haystack Rock. An experience not to be missed. Run by a wonderful family of good spirited souls who take great care around safety, starting with choosing the right... More

I grew up riding horses but stopped once I moved on to college. One of my "bucket list" items was to ride a horse along the ocean and another "bucket" was to go to Oregon. So this was PERFECT! The guides, Judy and her son Justin, were awesome! They were very knowledgeable and down to earth, which made it all... More

I loved the scenery and the peacefulness of the beach. I look forward to returning and bring my wife along with me.

Wind, ocean and on a horseback; life does not get much better. Had a wonderful 2 hour ride today.. Horses were very well taken care of, tack excellent and guides were friendly and experienced. Nature trail followed an hour or so on the beach was beautiful; sand dunes, greens, drift wood and in the river tons of seals. Great Saturday... More
