Bring your Horse Camping
Many people also enjoy camping with their own horses at Nehalem Bay State Park with its six miles of ocean trails and beach riding. The park is located on Hwy 101, 3 miles south of Manzanita. Accommodations include a campsite with two 11’ x11’ outdoor stalls.
Stay at a Hotel and Board your Horse
You may prefer to stay in one of the many beachfront hotels and board your horse in Cloverdale at Crazy A’s Horse Hotel. A great place to ride is Bob Straub State Park with its 484 acres dedicated to horseback riding and home to the largest haystack rock on the Oregon Coast.
Getting married on the beach?
A sunset ride in a horse-drawn carriage along the lovely Manzanita shoreline with Oregon Beach Rides might be in order.
When you feel like horsing around, there’s no better place to do that than on the Tillamook Coast.
