$75 for a One-Hour "Swimming on Horseback" Ride for Two ($150 Value)

Before a leisurely one-mile trot from Pungo Grill in Virginia Beach to North Bay, savvy horse minders give a few simple riding tips for novices and pros alike. Once at the bay, riders are encouraged to lead their horses into the shallow water for a cool splash in the waters behind Sandbridge. Food and beverages are available to purchase at Pungo Grill, and professional photography is available to document the experience. The friendly guides of Virginia Beach Horseback lead tours Tuesday–Saturday.

Virginia Beach Horseback

With a retinue of ten horses, Virginia Beach Horseback sends riders on equine adventures amid the surf and on the trail. Trained staff members work with the steeds on a daily basis, giving them ample attention and working to desensitize them to spooks from dogs, loud noises, and Mr. Ed reruns playing nearby. This helps keep the rides safe and enjoyable. Shoreline tours run from September through June, during which an instructor guides horses through the sand at Virginia Beach.
