We had a relaxing hour long ride on the beach. My two daughters, ages 11 and 14, and I had ample time to ride on the horses, Gus and Shadow. My mother also decided to join in for a quick time and my 2 year old nephew sat on the horse for a picture too. Fun for the whole family.... More

This was a very relaxing, beautiful way to enjoy the beach. The horses are incredibly calm and peaceful, and the the owners are very friendly and helpful. If you want to find different way to enjoy the beach, this would be the way to go.

Ever since I was a little girl I had dreamed of riding on a horse at the beach... Jeff & his wife provided the perfect atmosphere and I couldn't have enjoyed it more!! The horses were sweet and gentle. My fiance' and I had just gotten engaged a few days before and this was the perfect activity to complete our... More

This is a perfect outing for young kids or inexperienced riders. Jeff is patient and the horses are well-behaved. We took 3 girls ages 9, 6 and 5. Our 5 year old was hesitant and decided to walk along side. The girls wouldn't let us ride with them but the water was warm and we walked the beach. The day... More

We booked this special day as a treat for our two young girls (ages 3&4). We met Jeff and his wife and son at the beach entrance directly across from the graveyard of the Atlantic museum. The beach is gorgeous with very few people and lots of shells. The horses are very well cared for and gentle and sweet. My... More

I've always been terrified of riding horses since I was very young, but decided it was high time I conquered my fear. Shadow, so calm and gentle, was like my personal "people whisperer" for the morning and took me on the most carefree, ride. Jeff and Suzie are so wonderful and easygoing that it was like chatting w/ old friends... More

I called and spoke to the owner before leaving for our vacation. I reiterated 3 times that the people who would be riding were my wife, daughter and granddaughter. I.E. THREE people. At no time was I told that only 2 horses would be brought to the meeting spot. At no time was I told that only cash or check... More
