I called Skipper's Horse Rental well in advance of our trip to the coast with the express purpose of riding on the beach. I signed our party of four experienced riders up for the 2 hour ride for a Saturday. I called 2 weeks before our scheduled trip to change it to Sunday as I heard the weather was going... More

We had made reservations over a month ago....as we found some other people had also. We showed up at the requested time and waited and waited. When WE finally called "Skipper" he rudely said he wasn't going to come in that day. Although he had our phone number, he didn't even do us the courtesy of giving us a call... More

I am leaving this same testimonial wherever I can hoping to warn people before having a similar horrible experience that my mother had. My mom made reservations months in advance and traveled over 500 miles to fulfill her lifelong dream of riding horses on the beach. On the day of her ride, after waiting well past the scheduled time, she... More

We booked a beach ride with Skippers weeks in advance of our trip and showed up only to find a shabby area with a sign where they would bring horses for rides….if they were there. We called several times and did not even get an answer. Went across the street to Backcountry which was very nice and they took us.... More

I'm a local, and I know for a fact that this place is awful. Horses aren't well taken care of, and from what I can tell some of the horses are drugged (droopy bottom lip). The because the horses are so old, they don't even wanna move. True, not all old horses are bad, but the reason they are old... More

our granddaughter wanted to ride a horse but she had never been on one before so she was a little frighten about the idea to ride one. the young lady at skippers assured my granddaughter that it would be okay to ride the horse and she would lead the horse around the lot so nothing would happen to her.

My husband and I went to Long Beach specifically to ride the horses. He had never been on one and I remembered riding horses from this place when I was younger. This is the perfect spot for a beginner and the price is absolutely unbelievable at only $25/person. We rode down to the beach with 2 guides and even got... More

We found this place on the web and were excited to ride on the beach. It's early in the season, so many places only operate on weekends. Upon arriving, we were a little disheartened by the conditions of the "facility." I use that term very loosely as the location consists of a mobile horse coral and a shack with three... More

We had a great time! The price was very reasonable. The horses seemed well treated, and the guides were on top of things. When we were on the beach they intervened quickly and cleanly twice- when motorcycles came too close and when a dog came too close, and made sure there were no issues. The downsides- they didn't know how... More
