If horseback riding in North Myrtle Beach is on your bucket list, you’re in luck! The Grand Strand is home to a few fantastic horseback riding companies that will take you on an adventure you’ll never forget. It’s also one of the few places on the East Coast that allows horseback riding on the beach. Whether you want to trot on the sand or walk through the woods, these outfitters will show you how it’s done. Here are some of our favorite places to ride.
Where to Enjoy Horseback Riding in North Myrtle Beach
Inlet Point Plantation
History buffs, nature lovers, and animal fanatics alike will love taking a guided horseback tour with Inlet Point Plantation. Their professional guides will lead you on a peaceful tour through the plantation and will show you how to ride properly. We suggest signing up for the one-hour Sunset Island Beach Ride on Waiters Island. You’ll make your way through the dunes onto a private beach where you can ride along the oceanfront at sunset. The Waterway Trail Ride is another great option and takes guests through pecan groves along the Intracoastal Waterway.
Horseback Riding of Myrtle Beach
Horseback Riding of Myrtle Beach also offers fantastic horseback rides in Myrtle Beach, Conway, and Garden City Beach. The company has calm, well-trained horses, so no prior riding experience is necessary. (If you do have prior experience, you’re welcome to trot rather than walk!) They’ll even take pictures along the way that you can take home with you at the end of your adventure.
Just five minutes from the ocean and Main Street in North Myrtle Beach, a ride with Wampee Stables is a great way to spend the afternoon. Their trail rides are about 1.5 hours long and allow you to get to know your horse beforehand. The tour guide will also answer any questions you may have before you head out on the trail. Guided horseback rides at Wampee Stables are available by appointment only. Call ahead to make your reservations.
Myrtle Beach State Park
If you have your own horse or have access to one, Myrtle Beach State Park allows visitors to horseback ride on the beach. Horses are only allowed in the state park from November through February, so be sure to plan accordingly.
