- $79 for a 60-minute holiday lights horseback ride on the beach ($150 value)
A nighttime Festival of Lights ride takes groups down the shoreline of Virginia Beach to see the twinkling holiday lights nearby. Horses and their riders are even encouraged to play in the surf.
Virginia Beach Horseback
With a retinue of 10 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.
