Description:

Virginia Beach | Outer Banks (OBX) Horseback is a fun and caring...

Virginia Beach | Outer Banks (OBX) Horseback is a fun and caring organization that is here to help provide a better understanding of the bond that is established between man and horse. We have already rescued & retrained over 30 horses since Chase Foster took over the business in 2010. These horses were deemed unmanageable by their previous owners and now the men were looking to make a quick buck off the animal by selling to the highest bidder, slaughter chains and all. Our mission at these auctions is to find these horses and save as many as we can. The "unmanageable" horses come to the farm with all the spirit of a wild mustang. Here our goal is not to break the spirit completely, but find a safe way for us to communicate commands to the powerful creature in a way that can't hurt them or us. It's exhausting work, but with a lot of persistence, eventually they do seem to understand through our training and watching the other horses in action, that we are only here to help them succeed in life. Every customer that comes to support our business and experience their own bond on the beach, is ultimately helping us save and care for even more of these amazing animals.

Owner (Chase) and his wife REALLY have a love of horses. They were all treated so well. Business is run VERY professionally. Even though ride is for 1 hour, they do not rush you and you get every penny's worth of the money spent. Highly recommend!!! I would do it again in a heartbeat, perhaps with our children this time.... More

This group was wonderful and the horses were well taken care of even with the heat. We went on the last ride of the day and the horses were happy and not tired. It happened that it was College week at the beach and it was very crowded but they made sure to keep us and others safe. We really... More

We did the hour tour. It was super easy to book online, and all you have to do is go to 26th Street and look on the beach. You can't miss the horses! The horses were very well taken care of. That's very important for me. I noticed they were well taken care of. The staff was extremely friendly and... More

Me and my 8-year-old twins went on the 1hr horseback ride. The people were incredibly kind and the rescued horses all seemed very friendly. The VA beach ride was fine for beginners and/or children. The full hour ride was horses only walking. I was a little disappointed we didn't go to the waters edge or get the horses to gallop... More
