Owner description: Green Acres has to offer is guided tours of our mountain trails and local beaches on horseback. There is no better way to experience the Oregon Coast and all the nature it has to offer than on horseback. We can provide you with a horse and a couple guides to keep you safe while you take in all the scenic views of the Oregon Coast that you will never forget. Don't forget your camera !!!

“Fun times - although the reservation system was confusing...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2011

Their reservation system is confusing and screwed up the scheduling -- The map on their website is actually for the trail ride, not the beach ride (which we thought we had signed up for). We thought we booked for 11am but when we got there, they weren't ready for us. They also got us confused for the trail ride (which runs out of Lincoln City), and not the beach ride (which actually run out of Pacific City).
In the end, the owners Gary, Dan and Terry made it up to us. They weren't watching the clock the whole time and they showed us around the stables and the trails. We ended up spending more time there than the 1 hour we paid for. They are very personable folks and tried to make it right, and they made us feel welcomed and spent their time with us. In the end, we went back the same day at 5pm and my kids had lots of fun, ended up doing the trail ride instead.
The owners and workers there are very friendly.. They have passion for horses and people and it shows...
I would recommend them.. Just call in your reservations instead of going through website, at least until they work out the kinks in the reservation system.

“great horseback rides!”

I am a novice and was not entirely sure what to expect from a horseback riding, however Green Acres made the experience painless and so much fun. Would recommend to anyone considering riding on the oregon coast

“Even new riders will have fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2011

Last weekend my in-laws were in town and we decided to surprise my father-in law with an early Fathers' Day present and go for a beachtrail ride. I've only been on a horse two or three times in my life and to be honest would have been fine with even less experience. There were three staff members who took our group of 4 on the ride. They were very patient with my nervous wife and she wound up having a really great time. The weather was great but Green Acres charged by far the lowest rate of other horseback trail rides and we had a great experience. I have friends coming in town later in the summer and
we'll probably take them on another ride.
