Guides match up to eight riders to horses depending on experience level, then lead groups for 45 minutes and along the beach for another 30 minutes before heading back to the barn. Riders must be 10 or older, at least 4’8” tall, and weigh less than 200 pounds. Click here to view the FAQ page.
As their horses trot along a forest trail, a group of riders starts to hear crashing waves in the distance. The sound grows louder as they near the forest's edge, and when their horses step away from the tree line, the group sees a drastic shift in terrain—sand dunes, the distant Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and Cape Point, and miles of beaches. The horses then walk to the ocean, and at the guide's command, the animals amble along the water's edge. These noble steeds belong to Equine Adventures, which blends beach and forest riding into a single trip. The journeys start at the barn, where when not trotting along the beach, horses receive regular pampering from vets and play hopscotch on their days off.
