Four of us took the 3 hr round trip from the corral to downtown Murphys. Claire was a great guide and the horses well behaved. Rolled into town on horseback and wet our whistles at the Murphys Inn bar. Fun.

I have not made this trip.... but thinking there should be a wine called "Horse and Barrel" It could make for a great conversation. We are going to make this trip this week looking forward to our journey!

We went the first Sunday of February and had a absolute BLAST! It was my wife and our two daughters, 7 & 10.

It was a great ride, the scenery was beautiful, and the horses were easy to handle. We were told we'd have an hour ride and that's... More

This was a fantastic ride! There was a large group of us all experienced riders and very happy with the trails we took! Steep ups and downs through the mountains and into town and back. Great ride! Looking forward to booking our next trip very soon!

From looking at the information given it states that they can accomodate for all abilities, all of the people in our party were experienced riders but didnt break out of a walk.The twisted oak ride was meant to be roughly 1 1/2 hours long, it was not even an hour long. I would not recommend this for anyone who is... More

3 of us went horseback riding at this place in Vallecitos, Ca, just 4 miles outside of Murphy's. The ride was just up a short hill from the Twisted Oak Winery. Our guild was very informative and well experienced with riding horses. She found out each of our riding abilities and matched us up with the correct horse. She also... More

I love going horseback riding and had not been in years but we went on some trails overlooking vineyards and the twisted oak winery. The guide was very nice and informative and the horses were great and well trained.
