Newport, Rhode Island is a wonderful place to vacation with your family. We have been visiting Newport for many years as my husband grew up there. As my son has gotten older, our goal is to find new and exciting things to do when we visit. This summer we were lucky enough to do a beach horseback ride with Newport Equestrian Academy. Giddy up! Located just outside of Newport in Middletown, Rhode Island, Newport Equestrian Academy offers two hour trail rides along the beach. The trail ride includes a guide, instruction so even the most novice ride can feel comfortable, and a beautiful ride along beaches. For a detailed review and photos, check out my personal travel blog. Link in my bio.

What a great time!!! My wife daughter and I went on the two hour trail/beach ride and it was brilliant the owner and our guide could not have been more professional and courteous. They are very encouraging and patient with a skittish dad and first time 10 year old rider. The horses were incredibly gentle and so well trained for novice riders that I felt like John Wayne by the end of the ride feeling just as cool as a cucumber and my horse Caspian seemed happy to show me around. My only regret was my failure to bring some apples or carrots for the four legged staff.

The Guided tour to the 2 trips to the beach was such an exceptional family experience that we will always treasure. Our Guide, Stacy was phenomenal and put myself and my first time pre-teen riders at ease instantly. The horses were not only beautiful but well trained by the owner and staff members. You can feel the love and pride put into the Equestrian by everyone, like it was their family. We cannot wait until our trip to RI next October where we will definitely take another tour.

One of those lifetime memories. Yes, the website is deceptive. Yes, it was overpriced, particularly as the owner kept stressing that she doesn't pay the guide - who works for tips. So nearly $300 cash for two people to ride for only an hour and a half on roads, not trails. However - the horses were beautifully well-mannered in spite of challenges like cars and barking dogs. They had very smooth gaits, and the saddles were comfortable. The bird sanctuary that we rode through was lovely, and, even riding on the road, this was a lovely way to get a look at the beaches and hear the surf. The scenery was incredible and on the back of a horse, you get to appreciate it. You are higher up and you can go farther than if you walk the route, you can look around more than you would if you riding a bicycle, and you hear the waves crashing and seagulls calling more than you would in a car. Also, my horse was a sweetie.

We took the private 2 hour tour, the beach road to the wildlife refuge, was extraordinary! Through the saltmarsh and past 2nd beach. was a relaxed , comfortable ride with an informed, hospitable tour guide. Very romantic for my girlfriend and I, when the summers over we will be back to ride on the beach. I would recommend Stacy for her positive attitude and her love of the horses. I am very happy with my experience at Newport Equestrian Center
