Beautiful ride through beautiful scenery!

Excellent ranch! Horses are healthy and well-loved. Beautiful trail ride through state park. Our guide, Morgan, was knowledgeable about the horses and the area and very much fun to talk to. We also very much appreciated the high level of attention to safety.

The guide (terrible with names 😬) was fantastic!! This was a birthday present for my daughter who loves riding and is experienced. My husband, my 6 year old, and I had never ridden a horse. We could not have had a better experience! The horses were very well mannered and we had a beautiful scenic ride on the beach. If I’m ever back in California we’re definitely going there again!

Wonderful Experience!

I rode Charlie and he was so lovable and friendly! Our guides Karen and Emma were great! They accommodated us as a party of 8 and most of us had little to no experience riding horses. It was a very cool experience.

Great time!

What a wonderful experience! We were guided by Hannah who was very kind and patient with my little one who was a first time rider. The ranch made special accommodations to ensure we were able to get in our ride before a storm hit as well. Well worth the price and a great time, I highly recommend!!
