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

What a great owner! Marie our trail guide was terrific! She was so informative and gave us all additional riding tips, especially for... 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 found Outback trail rides on the internet, and it seemed to be a good place to experience the... More

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

We are horseback enthusiasts, have owned horses in the past, and still enjoy riding. Though we have ridden at many different places around the world, would have to say this is one of our favorites! We have ridden with Mick a few times and will continue to ride here every trip to Cambia! The staff is organized and friendly and... More

OBTR called 24 hours prior to our trail ride and cancelled because there were no available guides. We rebooked with a company in San Luis Obispo. They mentioned OBTR uses college students for guides and can at times run short of staff and cancel at the last minute. I requested a refund of my deposit when OBTR called and cancelled,... More

The staff at Outback Trail Rides were very friendly and took a lot of time to explain to us inexperienced folk how to properly ride a horse. It was my daughter's first time and my third so they gave us what they described as pretty calm horses. We rode with a pretty large party which they split up into two... More
