Looking for horseback riding and poutin on PEI

Jump to last reply

My mom and I are taking my sis for a surprise 40th birthday vacation to PEI in a couple of weeks. We were huge Anne fans as little girls so we think it will be a fun trip down memory lane for her, plus a relaxing and beautiful place for a girls trip.

We're staying in Charlottetown as our base. I've been doing lots of research but I need advice from Fodors insiders on three things:

1. Horseback riding on the beach for my sis
I am looking for a place where I can take my sister for a horseback ride that will go on a beach. Riding a horse on the beach is a childhood dream of hers after reading Misty and The Black Stallion over and over again.

I've found two places through online searching and I'm wondering if anyone can share any experiences with either?

The first is Brudenell Stables in Georgetown. The second is Circle T which has some glowing reviews and some really negative ones.

Ideally the place will be safe, take us on an easy trail ride with some riding on the beach, and be near a cute town where my mom can hang out while we are riding.

2. Great places to eat lobster while overlooking a water view for my mom
Any suggestions around Charlottetown? I was just on the phone with my mom planning the trip and said, "We will definitely have to get lobster one night." Her reply, "One night? You mean every night." She really, really loves lobster so any suggestions will be gratefully accepted.

2. Poutin for me
From what I've read, this is more of a Quebec delicacy, but the idea of fries, gravy, and cheese curds sounds magically delicious to me and I must try them while in Canada.

I'm from Baltimore, home of fries and gravy, and I've lived in Philly, home of cheesefries, but I have to congratulate the people of Canada for coming up with such a great food idea by combining all three! Yum, yum, yum!!

Is there anywhere to get good poutin on PEI? Or maybe somewhere along the road from Halifax to the bridge? Yes, I will drive out of the way for really good fries!

Thanks everyone!
