The staff of C&M Stables are very friendly, professional, and organized. They do a great job of matching the horse to the rider's ability. I really enjoyed my ride across the wetlands, across the dunes and onto the beach. I enjoyed being able to trot on the beach and hope to come back to do the ride where we can... More

My family of 5 (kids: 12; 15; 16) joined the Dunes ride last week, 1.5 hours. It was absolutely fantastic. Our guides were Tyler and Sarah who were professional. caring, engaging and entertaining. We loved the entire experience. The kids were thrilled to trot along the beach (as were we) - the setting was stunning. I can not rate this... More

I've ridden at C&M stables several times over the last 25+ years, and the rides have been hit or miss. When I was a teenager, they were controlled but you got yelled at for everything....back then you had to show you could trot your horse before you could get permission to canter. But I had the horse that would not... More

The scenery was beautiful, the horse was cooperative, the guide was great: a bucket list item checked off. I am mainly writing to praise the entire operation. The horses appear to be well kept and healthy. There are a LOT of rules, which is a GOOD THING for both the animals and the riders to keep everybody safe and enjoying... More

If you don't know the difference between a cantor and a trot; this "Ain't for you, Bud. " Very informative people that know what they're doing. If you are in really good condition they will take you on a trail ride. Cheers!

The ride on the beach is unreal - highly recommend for anyone who enjoys horse, nature and thrills! Few things to note: *The beach can be COLD and WINDY so bring more layers than you think is reasonable! You'll enjoy them later. *The stable can take quite a bit longer to get everyone ready and out to the dunes/beach than... More

This is an interesting way to see the dunes and beach. We went on the two hour ride. They allow one hour for filling out all the liability wavers and rules acknowledgements which only took about 30 minutes. The environment is wonderful, but the staff and horses were all very unenthusiastic about what they were doing. The horses seemed tired.... More

I have been here almost every summer for multiple rides and would recommend this one the best by far! The 2hr sunset ride on the beach is my favourite!

It's your only option for beach riding for many miles, so they can charge what they want. Pros: guides are friendly, educated and focused on safety. Longer rides through a variety of terrains including beachside. Cons: gear is worn, prices are very High, if you have a sunny day with light winds you'll have a good ride, but if it's... More

My 10 year old son & I wanted to go horse back riding on the beach while we were on our vacation. On our 1st attempt, I actually got really sick & blacked out while on my horse...I was unable to ride :( They gave my a full refund for both my son & I. A couple of days later,... More
