I don't know for what I paid $95, it was 2 hours and all this 2 hours was by step!!! May be it's ok for first time on a horse, but not for experienced rider. Never experienced anything more boring and frustrating. I purchased: 2 Hour Trail & Beach Ride Saturday, July 11 2015 @ 11:00am - 1:00pm Booking #1166542

My boys enjoyed the ride. Horses were well-trained for any level. I loved my horse named Calisco. He was pretty excited before the ride but he was adorable and easy to manage. The views and the beach was beautiful!This can't be missed when you travel to the bay area

My friend (from Sonoma County) and I (from San Diego) met and took our daughters (two each) for this gorgeous ride. There were six of us altogether and we had varied experience riding - from none to experienced - and the team made us all feel comfortable with instructions on how to ride and control the horses. We loved getting... More

My boyfriend and I were in town for a wedding and decided to do the early morning ride. There were 7 people in our group and two staff riding along with us. They took photos for us along the way. We had a beautiful ride through natural terrain. Mountains on one side, the ocean on the other. Half of the... More

Went with 5 people on Fathers Day - beautiful day on the coast, and beautiful trail ride down to the beach. Staff here is professional and personable - they make sure everyone is safe and also makes sure everyone has a great time. The horses were great, our guide, Juan was fun, and the professional photos were a great addition.

I took my nieces on the early bird 2 hour ride. They are 9 and 11 visiting from Texas. We all said this was the highlight of our trip. It was beautiful. The experience and the horses are well explained by the women at the check in desk. The handlers were kind and very considerate. The beach ride was absolutely... More

We had a group of four, all beginners, and took the early bird ride to the beach. It was a beautiful ride, and the guides were great. Very helpful and took pictures for us as well. We had a special needs rider, and he was given his own guide who had control of his horse and was very patient and... More

I haven't been to this ranch in years....and I have to say the level of professionalism surprised me! From my call to book, the friendly gentleman at the desk when we arrived, the instructions, and the level of safety - it's a great place for the rider who wants to enjoy the beach. I had three levels of rider, my... More

My husband and I were traveling through Half Moon Bay on a 6 month honeymoon road trip trip to Alaska and back. We are looking for fun and unique things to do in each place we visit, and this was one we stumbled upon! We did the Early Bird Special, and it was absolutely worth the early alarm to enjoy... More
