If you love horses and the beach then this is a must!! My daughter and I absolutely loved riding the horses on the beach at sunset!! Dori our guide was great! She even took pictures of us and I can't wait to see them!! The only thing that could have been better was the weather....we froze! But it was worth it! I would do it all again!! I can check this off my bucket list! I will definitely do this again!! Thank you Cedar Island Resort riding stables for a great day!!

We went out on a foggy day but it was a beautiful ride. Dori took us out for a 90 minute ride and all of the horses did a great job. We even got to see the wild ponies and some wild cows that were cream colored. Loved it, would do it again.

The 90 minute sunset with my wife was a fantastic ride. Dori was a wonderful guide and provided us with a very enjoyable experience! The horse were well behaved and respected us as riders. We had a blast, and will definitely be back again!

Spent Christmas on the coast and my family is still talking about the amazing horseback ride we took. Dori was such a nice, personable, fun guide and gave much info on the area during our ride. The horses are well cared for and we will definitely be planning another visit spring/summer. Great memories made!!

Cedar Island Resort is a little piece of heaven tucked away on the edge of the Pamlico Sound. Clean and affordable lodging and several camping options make this a perfect get-a-way for families or couples. You might start your day with a gorgeous golden sunrise followed by a ride along the beach and end it with an intoxicating sunset ride followed by dinner at the Bay Breeze restaurant. The manager, Dori, has a way of running the entire resort experience with precision and yet still makes you feel like you are part of the family. She is accommodating to her guests and passionate about the horses. I encourage all those who love a good adventure to head out and ride the beach line while you discover the islands and feel the history come alive. Who knows, you might get lucky
