This is an organized group. No reservations are necessary. It was a fun ride and the horses were pretty easy to keep under control. We just showed up at the beach with a bunch of family there for a family reunion. Pretty inexpensive for the...More

You can’t beat the price ($20 plus tip for an hour ride on the beach). There is no variance in scenery, though the beach and waves are pretty. Each group was large. Four guides ride along. I’ve had more scenic horseback rides, but none for...More

After visiting Ocean Shores for 30+ years I decided it was time to see why a ride on the beach was such a draw for others, and took the whole family along with me. We all really enjoyed the experience, the employees took care to...More

The website mentions riders must be 6 years old - there is apparently an arbitrary height requirement as well as my 6 year old was denied for being too short. The person on the beach couldn’t tell me what that height was though.

My daughters really enjoyed riding the horses along the beach. Peaceful, quiet, wide open beach. Horses were just fine.

There are signs in Ocean Shores that lead to the beach with the horses and the rental station. This is a good operation with guides that give quality care to the horses and riders. As a horse owner I believe this is a good operation...More

The cost is amazing, however, I would rather pay more for a horse not overworked. Some of the horses wanted to do more than walk, it's hard to keep holding them back to a rider that has no experience. That was the case with our...More
