This is a good thing if you want to take your younger kids on a horse ride, but it ain't cheap and the horses are old and slow. Still if you have 8-12 year old kids they will probably love it. For me I like to ride my bike past the old slow horses. It will cost you a bunch... More

Willow told me I might be to FAT to ride. I wish I could add a picture of how I look. Yes i am short and have a little belly but I'm not huge by all means. I am an experienced rider and have shown my Own horses before. Sadly, my horses has now passed. I never did make it... More

Willa C, Executive Director at Sea Horse Ranch - Private Rides, responded to this review

It is always difficult to discuss weight with people who want to ride. It is a touchy subject, to say the least. We have weight restrictions, explained in detail in our 'Ranch Rules' section of our website. These are purely and simply for safety reasons. Our maximum weight is 240 lbs., however, as explained on our website, we have put... More

Went once with the boyfriend and twice with two friends on separate occasions for the Early Bird Special and had an amazing ride on the beach! I highly recommend it!

Took the two older grand children riding for the first time and they loved it. If you are looking for detailed instructions on horse back riding and safety, I suggest you go to one of the stables that charge a whole lot more so you can have 30 min. of instructions. Here there are only pictures with a typed explanation.... More

I normally check reviews before I do anything but didn't this time because I thought, "horseback riding, it should be fun." I called and made reservations. When we got there (few minutes late), the witch behind the counter just looked at my party, shook her head and said, "you're late!" She went on to say that she had given our... More

I thought this was going to be iffy based on some of the reviews, but we had a blast. The lady that took our money will not be winning Miss Congeniality any time soon, but she was extremely effective and like I said...we had a blast.

So glad I heard about Seahorse Ranch from a friend. The price was affordable for the experience that we will never forget from our girls' trip. Definitely for adults as horses will get competitive and begin to gallop suddenly. Would be easy to fall off and not any instruction before horses begin. The views from horseback were amazing and going... More

Loved it!!!! When we got there they asked us if we knew how to ride horses. We said yes, as we have some of our own and ride frequently. Needless to say we both got two hot horses. But I wouldn't have changed horses if given the chance. It was a nice ride!!! Gorgeous views. It was nice because we... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time here over the Memorial Day weekend. i really liked Willa, the manager (owner?). She's a no nonsense gal with a wonderful sense of humor. She advised us to keep our keys, wallet, phone and anything of value in our front pocket for very obvious reasons otherwise our car would be the best... More

My wife was anxious and afraid of horses and the guide did a great job of settling the horse down and guiding her all the way. If she can do it, anyone can so don't be afraid it's worth the ride. Get a great experience of horseback riding in California on the beach. Many horses and beautiful ones at that.... More
