We were a little turned off by the voicemail we heard and the attitude of their people when we called and actually went to the place to see if they had availability. Maybe because they only had one more day left in the season and had enough for the summer. They prefer CASH! The ride was definitely beautiful on the... More

On our honeymoon, having a great time exploring the coast. Just dropped by to book a reservation for a ride. Nobody was around so I walked to the coral to pet one of the horses sticking his head out while I waited. A woman from afar yells "out! Leave! We're closed!" To which I exclaimed, "your sign says you're open... More

We wanted to check out the Oregon coast without just spending the whole day in the car or on Cannon Beach. We actually found OBR on TripAdvisor, and have had pretty good luck based on reviews, so decided to check it out. Who doesn't want to take a horseback ride on the beach, right?! Best decision we made all vacation!!... More

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
