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.

My fiance and I drove to Va Beach for a couples weekend. We met the wonderful staff, and Lee explained everything while taking incredible photos of us for a great memory of riding the beautiful horses! It was truly the highlight of the time spent! Thomas Davidson Richmond, Va.

The staff was courteous, knew their stuff and was very kind to Katie. She loved the ride and her horse. She can't wait to do it again at the Outer Banks location.

I loved my horseback riding experience over Christmas so much I took my six year old nephew with me when he came to visit at New Years. Its a pricey activity, but worth it, for a vacation activity. The staff is very professional, the pictures turn out great, the horses are wonderful (trail horses, all are tame) They match your... More

This is the second time I have ridden with this company, this time with my 11 year old son. We did the Festival Of Lights beach ride. As before, the horses were clean and in good condition, the corral was in good repair. The staff was welcoming and attentive. I am an experienced rider, but my son is not. They... More

We had a fun visit to VA Beach, including a horseback ride at dusk, even though it was really cold. Beautiful holiday lights and a moonlit sky made it magical. No big crowds, either.

Everyone involved were very sweet and accommodating. Ride was exactly time allowed and at a slower pace. Guide chit chatted and laughed along with me...

While on our honeymoon my husband and I did the horseback riding on the beach, and did it at night, to see the Christmas lights. It was wonderful! Even though it was chilly on the night we went, it was still money and time well spent. I got to ride Cupid, who was wonderful. She was very gentle and seemed... More

We absolutely loved our experience at Virginia Beach Horseback. Chase and his staff are second to none. They are so friendly and made the experience special and super fun. The horses are also second to none. Very well trained, groomed, and the sweetest horses. Not only are they beautiful and friendly, they are very easy to ride. We felt like... More
