All Beach Horseback Rides by Reservation
We will offer beach rides during the times that Popham and Pine Point are open, but instead of reserving specific days for rides and trying to fill one whole day as we’ve done in the past, we are only taking reservations from individuals and going any day that they choose. We certainly will attempt to fill the day if there is room around the time of the reserved ride. We will inform customers through our facebook page and our e-mail list.
We are limited by low tide. We must go three hours before or after low tide which means if its in the evening or the morning we are limited to how much time we have to ride on the beach.
The price is determined by our time preparing the horses and packing the trailer, the drive time to the beach and the prep time at the beach before and after the ride. $350 is our minimum just to make the trip. We offer this price to any individual or group up to four people. So it is $350 for one person, and $350 for four people. It is not per person.
If you have a group larger than 4 people we will split the rides into 4 people per group, the rides can range from 30 minutes to an hour depending on your needs. Remember we are limited by low tide, so often we can only fit about 3 rides (or 12 people) in if low tide is before 10 a.m. or after 3 pm since sunset is around 4 most of the winter month.
Popham is generally open to horses from October 1 through March 31. Pine Point is open October 15 through March 31 and requires a permit for $20 from each rider to be paid to the town. You will need a driver’s license to get your permit and they are open in the mornings at the town office between 9 and 12. You can get your permits at OOB Town Office or Scarborough Town Office. They are good for the whole season if you decide to ride again. It is your responsibility to get your back number and pin it to your jacket before the ride.
