“A Dream Come True”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2011

Horseback riding on the beach has been on my "bucket list" since I was young. There are very few places in the US that you are allowed to ride on the beach nowadays. Inlet Point Plantation has a BEAUTIFUL private beach where you get to ride. They take pictures while you're out there. The guides were very friendly & attentive. I would highly recommend the 2 hour beach ride! You will not be dissapointed! It was one of the most amazing thing I have ever done!!!

“WOW!! Memories made to last a lifetime, awesome! You need to do it!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2011

Our choice for our vacation destination was based on riding horses on the beach. We found Inlet Point on the internet and after reading reviews from experienced riders thought it would be a good place for us beginners, boy were we right! We went on the 2 hour beach ride and are glad we did, it was so much fun it did not feel like 2 hours! The kids could have rode all day!!!! The horses were energetic and gentle and very easy to control. Our guide, Katie was friendly and matched the ride to our skill level and comfort. The scenery was beautiful! From the woods to the private beach. The beach was awesome we were the only ones there for as far as the eyes could see, our horses seemed to enjoy tromping and splashing through the surf as much as our kids did!
The crew at Inlet Point Plantation were great they made us feel comfortable and welcome from the time we entered the door. It was nice to see such a beautiful stable and lots of horses! The photos they took of us on the beach were great! And ice cream at the end of the ride! That sealed the deal!!! ;-) We will be telling all of our friends and probably some strangers too to visit Inlet Point! And when they say arrive 20 minutes early you need it, The GPS/map ends where their plantation starts and it is a loooong windy ride through the forest until you arrive at the stables. This was definitely worth the price there is not a rollercoaster or waterslide that comes close to the thrill of riding a horse on the beach! Theme parks come and go but we will remember this vacation forever. Thank you Inlet Point Plantation!

“The Beach Ride is a must Do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2010

We live in North Myrtle Beach and go here several times a year. My Step Kids who live in NY come stay with us each summer and this is one of the first places they wanna go each summer. The barn and horses are very clean, the staff is very friendly,they do a grea job matching riders with a horse that fits the riders comfort level and the grounds are beautiful. The beach ride is a must it is on a private beach that is no doubt one of the most breathtaking views in Myrtle Beach. You can rent UTVs and cruz along the trails in the woods and have a picnic on the beach, all for very reasonable prices. Honestly this is one attraction that you should not miss.

“Staff was great. Given the limited options, we loved it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2010

Since we had a 7 year old, we took the woodland ride along the intracoastal. It was very nice; the kids loved it. It rained, so we got drenched, but it was a warm rain so it was kind of funny. They offered us free dry T-shirts when we got back. The trail guide was great; very personable and knew the whole history of the plantation. The horses were all awesome; easy to control but no trail nags. They use synthetic saddles which are great - shorts and sneakers are fine and no sore legs. Bring apples to reward your horse. Yes, the photos are expensive, but they are studio-quality and you can do a lot of editing and enhancements. The stable is easy to find, but use the directions on the website - Google maps seemed to have a little trouble as the stable is 2 miles down a private dirt road. Next year we will definitely be taking the beach ride. There are only 2 places we found that rent horses in the M-B area. We chose Inlet and were very happy with our choice.

“The ride to the beach is well worth the cost ....... you will really enjoy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2010

The experience for our whole family was great (2 adults and our 5 children aged 8 thru 16). The staff was super friendly, Mark (who I believe is the owner) was great to work with and super personal. The stables are super clean and the horses are obviously well cared for....the price might seem a bit steep, but for a once in a lifetime kind of family experience to all ride horses down to and on the beach, was more than worth. Our kids loved it, all of them and our youngest 8, being a bit experienced had no problems on the 2 hour beach ride they offer. I would highly, highly recommend for any couples or families wanting and experience to remember. There are also photo ops at the beach, so take your camera and they have a professional photographer and we said only one group picture for us, which she obliged and we purchased an 8x10 for only $25 plus shipping back to our home, well work this!!!! Our family says 2 x 7 = 14 thumbs up for this experience in Myrtle Beach. By the way the guides (two gals were also great Christina and Katie as well!!!)

And at the very end of the ride, your kids get a cold ice cream type treat and they loved it and needed it!!!
