The Ranch and the resident horses seems to be well cared for. Our 90 mins ride was really nice and suitable for me as a noice. Environment is beautiful. Check in was easy. Two staff rode along with our group of 4 people. They allowed each couple to hand over 1 cell phone for photo taking. The staff was surprisingly... More

My wife and our 9- and 12-year old sons enjoyed the 1.5 hour beach ride offered by Sea Horse Ranch yesterday and loved every minute of the experience. We rode with a group of eight, led on horseback by one of the ranch hands with another riding alongside, coaching humans and hustling the horses along when necessary. We rode a... More

Jon, thanks so much for taking the time to share your review. So very glad we were finally able to get your family out on this ride--sometimes Mother nature doesn't cooperate! So important for children, anyone really, to have a positive first experience on horseback. Glad we were able to provide that for you and yours. More

My friend and I went riding at Sea Horse Ranch in Half Moon Bay for the second time. The people there are very helpful which I was happy for since I have limited experience on horseback. The two hour ride takes you along the bluffs and then down on the beach. With a splash or two in the surf you... More

My wife and I were in the area for our anniversary, and since she loves to ride we made reservations here. We selected the 1 1/2hr ride which goes onto the beach, and had a wonderful time. Our guide, whose name unfortunately I don't recall, was great, the scenery was outstanding, and our horses were wonderful. Highly recommend Sea Horse... More

Excellent experience! Wonderful customer service! We received a briefing on how to understand a horse and how it thinks. My wife was a first time rider and this really helped her relax and accomplish her life time goal of riding a horse. Being more experienced I got to ride "Dude" who had some views of his own that the two... More

Had a super guided ride with Dan who was very friendly and fun to chat to on the trail and beach ride. Beach portion is only 20 minutes long but that's enough. Would have loved to trot and canter but I was with a couple of beginner riders so it wasn't possible...Dawn who takes the reservations and introduces you to... More

This was a very nice way to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! Juan was an excellent guide and took us through the forest and onto the beautiful beach in Half Moon Bay. Loved how relaxing this was too!

My cousin and I- both over 55- chose the Thursday 1.5 hr value ride at 1PM. Small group of riders and of all ages. Two guides for six riders. Good pre-ride orientation. We enjoyed the narrative by the guides who took photos on the beach. Horses were well trained well cared for and friendly. Would love to do this more... More

This was a birthday gift for my husband and I was so glad that he really enjoyed it. The staff was obviously dedicated to the safety of horses and riders, and there was a long introductory lecture. The ride took them along an attractive coast trail wth sea views and then on to the beach. I sat on the beach... More
