Worse horseback trip ever.
One horse was 20 years old and wouldn't walk.
I started out wanting to ride on the beach with my lady.
Started out 2 guys in hoodies on a hot day meet us with 2 horses. We get on and start walking on the beach with a guide walking beside each horse.
The person walking in front of my horse stayed on his cell phone talking. the other guy walked with my lady or stood beside her talking and not walking in from of the horse.
I asked the guy walking my horse to wait on my girl to catch up I wanted a relaxing ride with her not by myself. So he waited.
Then we took off again, within a few mins we were a few hundred feet ahead again, and then in no time we were so far head it was ridiculous.
I again asked to wait on my girl as this is not a very romantic ride on the beach with her, and I wasn't enjoying ridng alone.
He said here I can help, put your foot over here and had me side off the horse. Then side the ride was over, Now were 1/4 to 1/2 mile away from my girl and he made me walk back to her, and made her get off and we had to walk back to were her shoes were left at the starting point.
This is a very rude company and I do not recommend using them, even if Satan asked me who I would recommend, I would not tell him to use this company as he would send me to the same hell this ride turned out to be.
They Sucked that bad.

Is this a romantic place or activity that you would suggest for couples? Hell NO, not in this lifetime, less you want some strange dude standing by the none moving horse chatting up your woman while his rude friend leads you off.

The website says they strictly adhered to a 200 or less weight limit, however “If you are tall and over the weight limit give us a call. We are mindful that not everyone is the ideal weight and height.” So we contacted them because my husband is tall and “not ideal” since he is an ex-pro athlete and I am just over that despite looking at me no one would put me over 180. My daughter and I English ride every Saturday here at home. We have done tours like this all over the country on every family vacation. We rode through, Yellowstone, Colorado, the Tetons and so many more. Do they usually have to get the “big” horse for my husband…yes. As an avid rider who also share boards I understand weight restrictions and that horses have limits. My frustration is in an organization/barn that says “we currently have a strict 200lb weight limit. If you are tall and over the weight limit give us a call. We are mindful that not everyone is the ideal weight and height.”, and then is not understanding. Piece of advice/lesson learned if you are 201 do not even bother to inquire…the answer is a firm no because they are not “mindful”.

Kids loved this - horses were strong and gentle, owners were calm and easygoing... it was a great first-time experience. One that we will no doubt repeat on the next visit.

My son & I had the best time riding Gus & Shadow. They were so gentle and having an entire hour on the beach riding was a dream come true! We highly recommend. If we ever travel back to the OBX we will definitely book with Hatteras Island Horseback Riding again!!!

We had a relaxing hour long ride on the beach. My two daughters, ages 11 and 14, and I had ample time to ride on the horses, Gus and Shadow. My mother also decided to join in for a quick time and my 2 year old nephew sat on the horse for a picture too. Fun for the whole family. The horses Gus and Shadow were gentle and the owners Jeff and Suzie were friendly and accommodating. Lovely horseback riding on the beach, great for the inexperienced rider, and good price for the experience.

This is a perfect outing for young kids or inexperienced riders. Jeff is patient and the horses are well-behaved. We took 3 girls ages 9, 6 and 5. Our 5 year old was hesitant and decided to walk along side. The girls wouldn't let us ride with them but the water was warm and we walked the beach. The day was picture perfect and we had a great time.

I have forever dreamed of horseback riding on the beach and alone with Gus and Shadow, my dream finally came true. This ride is 100% on the beach- as promised. The horses were beautiful and calm. Jeff (the human) and his wife and son were a pleasure to deal with. A very positive experience and, for me, a dream come true!

My family and I rode with this company last year, and we had a great time. You get to ride through the woods first which was fun because being at the beach you don't realize all that is there. Then we got to the beautiful wide beach with hardly anyone on it. We were able to run the horses if we wanted. We then cooled off by riding back through the woods at the end. It was an enjoyable way to spend the morning, and something different to do at the beach rather than all the water activities.

Thank you for the response but you must have ridden with Equine Adventures. Our ride is a full hour on the beach without going through the woods. I am glad that you had a great time.

This was a very relaxing, beautiful way to enjoy the beach. The horses are incredibly calm and peaceful, and the the owners are very friendly and helpful. If you want to find different way to enjoy the beach, this would be the way to go.

We booked this special day as a treat for our two young girls (ages 3&4). We met Jeff and his wife and son at the beach entrance directly across from the graveyard of the Atlantic museum. The beach is gorgeous with very few people and lots of shells. The horses are very well cared for and gentle and sweet. My girls loved every minute of the horse ride and we made some special memories!! There is a porta potty at the entrance to the beach that was clean. You can book via email, or phone. And pay by cash or chq...don't forget the apples and carrots for the horses!!
