Horseback Riding Beach Trail
Organization Sponsor: Little Pond Stables
Organization Partner: Nova Scotia Equestrian Federation
Haven't you always wanted to ride a horse on a beach?
This is by far our most popular ride. A beautiful beach with a breathtaking view of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Ride through a stand of spruce trees, then you're off to the beach and finish riding through a stand of hardwood trees and experience crossing a brook. It doesn't get any better than this!This ride is 1 .5 hours.

Feedback from participants and the popularity of the ride.
It is an excellent ride for mixed ages and experience. It is cooler riding by the ocean in the summer. The beach is also very beautiful.
The weather can be a challenge. Having many riding times a day help people choose better weather conditions.
This program began around 1992.
