Are you looking to escape the bustle of your busy life with some much-needed time in the great outdoors? Are the beautiful shores of South Carolina calling you? Then consider horseback riding! Whether you are a beginner, or an advanced rider, there is a trail or riding path for everyone to enjoy in North Myrtle Beach.
Wampee Stables is a family friendly horse farm owned and operated by Debbie and Richard Paker, along with their daughter Warner. Located in Little River, just five minutes from Ocean Drive and the beach, this farm is the home to over 35 amazing horses and has been in Debbie’s family for over a century. Debbie was raised on the farm, giving her a special relationship with the horses, and offering them the utmost comfort available.
Fun for all ages and skill levels, Wampee Stables offers trail rides, riding lessons, birthday parties and summer horse camps. These rides are educational as well as fun for the whole family. Everyone from young children to grandparents will remember the memories made horseback riding. Trail guides Warner and Annick love what they do, and are sure to spread the joy to you and your family, too! Free pictures will be taken of your group as you head out on the trail, and emailed to you at no additional charge!
Trail rides are approximately 1 ½ hours in length, which includes time riding in the ring to make adjustments, get to know your horse, and allow your guide to answer any questions you may have before hitting the trial. Plan to wear weather-appropriate, loose-fitting clothing. And don’t forget the bug repellant and sunscreen to protect you while traversing the trails and soaking in the sunshine. The cost is $65 per person with deposit required at the time of reservation. All of Wampee Stable’s horseback trail rides are by appointment only, so call ahead for a reservation today at 843-399-1489.
Inlet Point Plantation
Named #1 of 43 attractions in North Myrtle Beach by Trip Advisor in 2014, Inlet Point Plantation offers a variety of horse rides year-round for riders of all levels and interest. The one hour island beach ride offers an oceanfront horseback ride on Waites Island. Another option is the two-hour combination plantation and beach ride, which offers a one hour ocean front ride on Waites Island followed by a one hour shady waterway ride. Both rides are for ages 7 and up. Other various rides include a one-hour private ride for experienced riders, a one hour sunset beach ride, a waterway trail ride, as well as pony rides for younger children up to 10 years old.
Inlet Point Plantation also offers family portrait sessions on the island. For $155 a family of up to six people will be guided along the trails of the waterway, through shady forests and over salt marshes, where you will meet your photographer and pony for the family and pony session. Sessions last for 2 hours, and kids get to ride the pony during the photo session (price doesn’t include photos). Another session is offered for $95 for the same package without the pony.
Reservations are required at least a few days before you’d like to ride. Rides are Monday-Saturday, 8AM to sunset. “Bring Your Own Horse” starts back on October first, and the cost is $60 daily. This is an opportunity to bring your horse by trailer for the day in the cooler off-season. Call 843-249-2989 to make your reservation today.
