Some questions to ask whether you are riding here on the Outer Banks or anywhere in the world.
1.What is your safety record? Are you insured?
2.Do you gallop?- If you are not comfortable galloping on a horse, do not go with any ride that allows galloping. Horses are herd animals and even if you don't want to run, you may find yourself going faster than you had planned.
3. Is it a private ride? If not, are all riders at the same experience level?
4. Ask about the horses? How long have they had them? Where do they get them? How long has the horse you are going to ride been doing this kind of work?
5.Does the owner participate in the daily running of the business? Who are the guides? What is their experience?
