Experience the Central Coast on horseback. We rode on the beach in Cayucos, but you can also choose a winery ride.

My husband and I decided to give wine tasting a break and opted for a Horesback ride on the Beach. We contacted Outback Trail Rides after researching other trip advisor posts. We were looking for a ride that allowed a little more independence than the traditional nose to tail rides, and they did not disappoint! Our Guide Mick And Marie... More

I contacted Outback Trail Rides and spoke with Mick about reserving a spot for my girlfriend and I to horseback ride on the beach in Morro Bay. He scheduled us a time without any problem. We arrived yesterday and Mick was beyond the best person possible to have taken us on this ride. It was an amazing experience, he had... More

Had a wonderful ride in Paso Robles at the Calcareous vine yard. Me and my boyfriend did the 'Drover' ride which was 1.5 hours and then included a wine tasting. The horses were lovely and well cared for, the scenery was beautiful, and our guide Mick, was really friendly and put us both at ease. My boyfriend was a bit... More

I recently went to the US and really wanted to fulfill one of my 'bucket list' dreams, that being a ride along a beach, preferably with a canter included. Wow. I really managed to check that item off my list. Unlike other places that I'd looked at, mainly in the Monterey bay area, this seemed a more relaxed option where... More

This was an amazing experience. The highest level of service and professionalism. Remember to bring cash to pay your guide and bring some extra for a tip...Mick (our trail guide) was great and deserved every penny. He was patient and a great person to chat with on the trail. He takes his time to show you the ropes and makes... More

We took a 90-minute horseback ride with Kristin on a beautiful April afternoon. We are all novice riders and she (and the horses) were patient with us. The best part is that the group was just the three of us! After the ride, we walked to the tasting room on the other side of the parking lot and enjoyed a... More

We were visiting California with friends, and I was keen to go horse riding. We spent two weeks driving down highway one, and I looked up any places that might do rides near Cambria, as this was one of our stops.

I talked my husband in going on a horseback trail ride, even through neither one of us had rode a horse in over 35 years or more. We were both a little afraid at first. But after getting there and the owners telling us what we needed to do and not do, we relaxed and had a great time. I... More
