There's a reason why people imagine the perfect horseback ride as one that is set against miles of open shoreline, with blue ocean waves crashing along the shore, and unlimited and undisturbed landscapes. On the Outer Banks, this fantasy is a readily available reality, with a handful of horseback riding companies available all along the various communities to take vacationers out on an afternoon or evening beach ride.
Vacationers who want to take a horseback exploration of the OBX beaches do not necessarily have to experienced riders. The majority of horseback riding companies offer experienced guides to assist riders along the way, and folks who are bringing their own horse along will find seasonally open trails and beaches all along the local refuges and national seashore.
For a romantic excursion that captures the ideal beachfront horseback ride, there's no better launching point than the Outer Banks. Why not grab your loved one, head to the beach, and simply enjoy the open water views of a horseback ride along the East Coast's most memorable and beautiful beaches.
