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 had amazing time with my guide!! (I believe her name was Emily?) It was so peaceful and enjoyable. I rode Virshima who is a white Russian Orloaf and blind in 1 eye. 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

This was the best experience for basically first time riders. The staff were beyond amazing, friendly and witty. My husband is a bit of a comedian and our guide ( can't remember her name but just graduated high school super cute Lil gal) kept up with his wit. He was so nervous being on a horse and she made it... More

My husband and I spent our mini-moon on the North Coast, and we enjoyed a beautiful ride through the redwoods on the morning of Christmas Eve. We had originally scheduled our ride for 12/23, but the weather was poor and Carolyn graciously allowed us to reschedule. Our experienced guide, Noel, was super knowledgeable about the horses and the area. We... More

Great staff and orientation for riders and non-riders. We watched a film and then had horse-side talk through. There was a nice walk through park land to get to the beach and along the sand road. The time on the beach was mostly just to take photos and then we turned around and went back. My body said it was... More

My husband listens...who knew?!? LOL I've always wanted to ride a horse on the beach, and he made that wish come true. The staff and the horses were amazing. The scenery was amazing and the horses were well kept and very gentle to a novice rider like myself. I rode a horse named Cloud, she was beautiful and patient. I... More
