Horse back riding

Horse back riding




I've seen a few posts recently with people who have done horse back riding on the beach, I assume. Just curious where this is available and how much it cost?

I was supposed to do equine adventures in Frisco last September but hurricane Dorian had other ideas.

A lady named Sylvia refunded my money without me even having to ask. Even though I didn’t get to go horseback riding on the beach, she did the right thing and I would highly recommend them.

135$/per person for a two hour ride according to their website.

Just an FYI, if you have any larger members in your family there are weight limits.

Many have a weight limit of around 225, which is not exactly obese.

Before you ask, I weigh 212 and have done this. Can't remember who because someone else booked it, all I remember was we stayed in Nags Head and drove a little bit south of Oregon Inlet it was pretty fun.

Yeah equine adventures has a weight limit. No one over 200lbs allowed.

Wow it'll be close for me. My family did a horse tour in the mountains of Tennessee a few years back. My son who was 9 at the time cried prior to saddling up. He has asked me multiple times since then if we can go ride somewhere.


RE: Horse back riding




If you’re serious about booking, you should give equine adventures a call, and be honest about your weight. They might be able to accommodate you.






RE: Horse back riding




We've ridden with Equine adventures twice 3-4 years ago. I was over the weight limit, but when I called they said it wasn't a problem. I don't remember exactly how much I was over but between 5 and 25 pounds. The first time they put me on a big Belgian draft horse name Tonka. The second time my horse was much smaller, but there were other riders who, to my eye, looked heavier than me. So I would call them and be honest about your weight and concerns. They don't mention your weight when assigning horses before the ride. You'll have a good time.
