My daughter and I had a private 1 hour beach ride today (1 hour is plenty of time) and then she took a Dressage lesson with Valente afterwards. Both were great. The lesson in particular was awesome and my daughter commented afterwards how Valente was a wondering teacher. We will come back

We had an awesome time and the horses were very healthy and friendly. Our two guides (for a group of 8) were friendly and knowledgeable. It happened to start pouring rain right before the second hour of our ride and the owner was nice enough to refund us due to the unfavorable conditions (which he certainty did not have to... More

That the horses are cared for well is important in our choice of vacation riding stables, and Cuadra San Francisco is clean, the horses are healthy and well fed, the tack is good, we left on time, and the guides were friendly. We chose the 2-hour canyon ride, and it was beautiful. The horses were quiet, but responsive and willing... More

This week I took "refresher" lessons with Sr. Valente Ballena, and then a beautiful trail ride with him. He gently and importantly taught me that my lifetime of riding had lacked one important aspect: always being "active" with control of the horse's attention. At my request, lots of canters -- yay! Great horses, fabulous teacher!

We ride fairly often as I have owned my own horse for several years. It was a wonderful break from my own horse to ride such well trained horses. After our guide asked us if we would like to, we galloped along the beach during sunset and the view was incredible. I was equally impressed at how well the horses... More

I enjoyed a wonderful ride! Adelfo, my guide, and I rode alongside each other into the canyon. The scenery was gorgeous - cactus, chaparral, rocky outcrops. Adelfo provided the perfect blend of trainer and guide. He was completely tuned into my pace and level of expertise. The stables are impeccable. The horses are clearly very well cared for. There are... More

Our party of 6 included 3 who had previous bad memories with horses - however, Alejandrina and company provided us with well-trained horses that made everyone in the group enjoy the experience.
