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.

Me and my 8-year-old twins went on the 1hr horseback ride. The people were incredibly kind and the rescued horses all seemed very friendly. The VA beach ride was fine for beginners and/or children. The full hour ride was horses only walking. I was a little disappointed we didn't go to the waters edge or get the horses to gallop... More

I've been but my family has never been horseback riding. This was the perfect chance for them to give it a try and on a beach. The staff were extremely friendly and paired you with a horse based on your experience and provided a helmet. The 30 minute ride was a mile and a half long which was just enough... More

Person booking trips on phone not well trained. Trip was booked for 2pm but they bumped the entire 2pm group for a 30 minute trip. Everybody just had to wait? The check in person not very nice. Overall not a memorable experience

Correction* the ride did not get "bumped". We provide all customers with the full time they book. We allow time between rides in case of delays, however with spring break this week, and booked at full capacity, and the beaches packed. This sometimes results in 10-15 minute delay for the following ride. The ride was provided the full time, sorry... More

Booked an hour horseback ride on the beach at Va. Beach with my best friend and had a great time! The horses are gentle and sweet. The owner Chase and his dad are incredibly nice people! They accommodated our appointment even though we were an hour late for our ride due to traffic. This is definitely something you can check... More

We only had a short time window but they were very friendly and sweet to our girls and were able to work them in for a 30 min ride. The girls loved every second of it and a great experience.
