A friend of mine and I did this - it was simple, low key. The beginning instructions were more informative than I've ever had in the past - this is a bonus. Keeps you on track, even if you've ridden before. The team is friendly and accommodate everyone in the group. The group was large about 17 people with varying... More

My husband and I took our 10 and eight year old grandchildren on the early bird special this week. My 8 year old granddaughter had never ridden before, and was a bit apprehensive. The lady that checked us in came out to where the horses were saddled and ready. She did the most comprehensive job of explaining horses as herd... More

I am local.... We had visitors from Slovakia who wanted to ride on the beach. This fulfilled their dream...! It was a lovely ride. The receptionist was kind and helpful. The riding instructions were good. The riders who accompanied our group were good. I wish they had introduced themselves before we left on our ride so we would have been... More

Don't pass this up, it was really fun. The horses are beautiful and well cared for & guides seemed very capable. The ride is gorgeous and getting to take horses on beach was a rare opportunity.

Very well organized trail rides. Horses were fit, healthy and well cared for. They were well trained as well. Our ride went over to and down the beach along the ocean which was gorgeous.

The early bird special was a highlight during our trip to Half Moon Bay. They booked us the day of our ride (45 mins before the start time) and were very nice and accommodating. We had a small group and the trail and beach views were spectacular. They do not allow phones and cameras on the ride, but their professional... More

This was a beautiful ride! It went on the trail beside the coast and down to the beach. I was a chicken and the leader lead me the whole time. My daughter rides horses and had a really good time. The whole ride is about an hour. The owner was so helpful in explaining the horses and how to handle... More

I booked this as a 20th wedding celebration and wanted my family of 5 to enjoy the morning. We did the 1.5 hour option. It was me, my husband, son (18), daughter (16) and son (8). At first I was worried because I read poor reviews on Yelp but I had already booked. So we went for it and hoped... More

My daughter has always wanted to ride a horse so I looked on Yelp and saw all the great reviews and called Saturday morning. I was greeted on the phone with a friendly voice who booked the ride for us the next day. We went the wrong way & arrived just in time for our ride. Everyone was very helpful.... More
