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.

What a great addition to our vacation! All of the staff were friendly and accommodating. They asked questions and made the experience interactive. I was informed about my horses personality and how and where she liked to ride. This allowed me to feel comfortable riding, as my horse acted as described (liked to be the leader of the group and...

Chase, Cameron & Cory (sorry if I spelled your names wrong) were friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating to everyone in our group! We had a great time! My in-laws were a little nervous, as they've never really ridden horses before; and OBX Horseback riding made sure they were well taken care of! They even made sure that everyone in the group...

We had visited Coquina Beach earlier in the week as part of our exploration of the Outer Banks. Great beach to visit by the way, not crowded, with a clean bathroom, shower and water station. Upon leaving, my daughters spotted horses being unloaded from a trailer. We walked up and saw that it was a company offering horse back riding... More

The guys at OBX Horseback are so nice and caring. They match you to a horse and take all the time you need to get comfortable. The horses are very nice and well behaved. Great option if you are in northern Outer Banks and don't want to travel all the way to Hatteras. Would do it again!!

The guys were amazing! Very friendly and helpful! The horses were obviously well cared for and easy to ride. We had a 7 year old who had never ridden before and they took excellent care of her and ensured she had a safe, fun time. It was such a great time and fun experience for the entire family! I DEFINITELY... More

We had the best time ever! The staff were very personable and very accommodating. We had a party of 8 with various experience levels. They chose what horses best fit each person. These horses were so well taken care of and so gentle and we'll behaved. They each came with a background. Some were given to them due to the... More

We had a wonderful evening at Outer banks Horseback! We had so much fun, and they were so accommodating to our son who was too scared to steer himself. They also were so nice, they led him with a lead rope. This allowed us to enjoy our rides and have fun and not have to worry a lot. We got... More

The horses are beautiful & well cared for. The staff was nice and very helpful as well. I have never ridden before and they picked a good horse for a beginner to have. The ride was very nice and the instructor took multiple pictures for us. The instructor (I believe his name might've been Cameron) was incredibly personable and made... More

My extended family (8-58) rode the horses on coquina beach, obx on July 5. What a great time. Cory and Chase led the full hour long ride along the shore. The hands were personable, the horses clean and well groomed. Great times!!

I am almost 50, and my wife and I have never ridden before. Corey and Cameron took care ti make sure we were comfortable with what we were doing. They were great at taking pictures of us together also. This was the highlight of our trip.
