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

Basically fun for my kids with helmets provided and well trained horses in good condition with friendly staff. The problem was the cost (over $200 for four people for a half hour) and the timing. The sign-in worker gave us a strong lecture about being on time for the ride or else they would bill us full price and leave... More

A well run operation indeed. They went out of their way to make us tourists feel welcome. Matched us up with horses to our riding levels, and the walk through the woods to the wide open beaches was very enjoyable. Once onto the beach it was great having the breeze blowing through our hair, the smell of salt air, and... More

My family of 4 including an 11 year old and a 15 year old had a blast riding through the forest and along the beach. We are all beginners. The scenery is gorgeous and worth the trip!
