Beach Rides are held at low tide. Depending on destination, your ride is a 4 – 5 hour excursion. You travel from North Road Farm, Fremont NH to the beach and back to North Road Farm. Plan on 60 minutes to groom and tack-up your horse or pony. Assistance is provided. Travel to Hampton Beach is 25 minutes. Travel to Crane Beach is 55 minutes. You will ride the beach for about 90 minutes or until everyone is finished. Jan is your mounted lead for the entire ride. If we have a full party of 4 riders, Jan rides “Pegasus the Purple Horse” aka the fat tire bicycle. You are more than welcome to return to North Road Farm after your ride, or continue to your next next destination. Families or friends are welcome to watch and document with photos/videos.
Every rider is required to complete and submit online this Ride Release. New, beginners or restarting riders are required to take a pre-beach ride lesson prior to the actual beach ride or on a completely separate date. The pre-beach lesson fee is $85 per rider. Safety is paramount and the primary reason Jan requires the pre-ride lesson as no one’s goal is to fall off or fight with the horse. We love our horses and want you to love them too. The horses try their hardest to make your ride very special. A beach ride package is the beach ride and pre-ride lesson.
For nervous, anxious or youth riders a lead walker is required to be with the rider for the entire beach ride. The lead walker is on foot, on the ground walking at your mount’s side with a lead rope attached the horse. The lead walker calms the rider and handles the horse to ensure maximum safety in case of any unexpected situation. The lead walker is optional and not included in the beach ride package.
Wear weather appropriate clothing, as beach wind can give you a chill. Riding helmet or your bicycle helmet are required. No sneakers or sandals. No one wants a crushed toe.
Don’t forget to bring carrots or apples for your new found furry friend 🙂
