Take an engaging horseback ride along the pristine Southern Outer Banks shoreline with a trip to Cedar Island’s Outer Banks Riding Stables. This local horseback riding company may be a little out of the way for Crystal Coast vacationers, but longtime fans agree the trek is worth it, as the scenic ride presents unlimited opportunities to enjoy the breezy sound shoreline.

Outer Banks Riding Stables is located on the northern edge of Cedar Island, (about 25 minutes north of Beaufort), and is found almost adjacent to the Cedar Island / Ocracoke Island ferry docks. From this locale, riders will embark on a leisurely amble along the soundfront shoreline, where wide beaches await and the salty breezes keep the mosquitos at bay. Safety tips and riding instructions are given by a professional guide before your ride begins, and horse fans will find a variety of breeds at the stables, including Thoroughbreds, Morgan, Appaloosa, Quarter, and Tennessee Walkers. There’s mile of scenery to enjoy along the way, and sunset tours can be arranged to take advantage of the local sound waters at their best. Accessible for riders of all skill levels, the Outer Banks Riding Stables invites new and longtime vacationers alike to come enjoy the OBX ride of a lifetime.
