Overview

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.

Riding a horse on the beach was on my "60 Before 60" bucket list. Four of my friends and I-all in our 50's- enjoyed one of late afternoon rides. Because we are all inexperienced riders, the length of the ride-approximately an hour-was just enough for...More

The ride is along the ocean so it's nice and breezy. Long pants are definitely best, but longer shirts/ capris would work too. Wear a tank top and sunscreen! You can take your helmet off once you're on the beach.

Our age minimum to ride a horse without experience is 6 years old and older. We will select the appropriate horses for the children.
