And it was a pleasure! From start to finish a wonderful experience. Our guide Emily was a delight, patient, fun and knowledgeable. We took the 3 hour redwood ride. So peaceful and pretty, a great way to spend time. And don't be afraid if you are not a rider, they do a great job matching people to the horses. So... More

Beautiful ride through forest to the beach. Horses were great for beginners (those of us who usually only ride on vacations). Staff was very friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

We did a 4-hour ride through redwood forest. Lots ups and downs through the woods. Horses were well behaved. Enjoyed our ride very much. However, a bit pricey!

My sister is the one who took the ride. I got it for her as an early Christmas Gift. She has been a horse fanatic for 50 years. She said she had an amazing time. I am including pictures.

Hubby and I paid for a group ride online a couple weeks before our honeymoon. The ranch was easy to get to and our guide, Emily, was fantastic. M husband has ridden a horse once before a few months prior, but I had never ridden an actual horse (just ponies at the fair as a kid). Naturally, I was a... More

I loved our trail ride. The owners and staff were wonderful from the minute we got there. They really cared about horse and rider safety, and everyone having a good time. The beach they took us on was really beautiful. The guide we had was clearly knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

We got a Groupon for a beachfront horse ride for two. We loved the location and guide however were not allowed to trot or canter in the beach. WTH? That's the best part of riding on the beach! Other than that a great experience.

I bought the 1 hour private tour ride on the beach for my husband's 30th birthday. We were both beginners, yet we felt so at ease riding these 1000+ lb animals. Everyone at the ranch was friendly, sociable, and knowledgeable. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

I've grown up with horses and have ample experience and he was a great match for me! My guide and I even cantered and trotted through the... More

I had taken the 1 hour beach ride previously, but decided to experience the 3 hour Redwood ride. It was a great day weather wise in spite of it being December 30! The guide (sorry I forgot her name, but it's the girl from Minnesota), was awesome. She was very conscious of what I wanted to do and we had... More
