Had a great time. We were able to do more than just walk the horse. It would have been nice to have someone take pictures down the beach a little ways in front of the beach with the waves in the background and not people.

This is a must for anyone that wants to experience horseback riding. Our 9 year old daughter had the best time and this made it the "best summer ever" as she put it. Easy online booking, simple introduction, helpful Wranglers, experienced photographer and we are super happy we made the 2 hour booking that gave us additional time on the... More

I would of given my review 5 stars but was disappointed on our return time. The sign at the barn does read "approximately" 2 hours for $90.00. We had 25 minutes to spare when we returned. I can understand 10 minutes or so, but 25 minutes? It was a fun ride, the horses were sound and sweet. The instructions given... More

Cassy, thank you for your review. I'm pleased you found the ride itself fun, the horses well maintained, and the staff friendly and helpful. That said, I'm not happy your ride was too short. There is no question that 25 minutes was WAY too short. I am glad you said something on this review so I am able to address... More

My husband, two kids (10 and 12), and did the morning ride. The horses were happy, my kids were thrilled and the views were wonderful. I am not a rider but the guides were great in keeping everyone comfortable and safe. The ride on the beach was the best part. The experience is one of the best memories we made... More

Highly recommend this ranch to anyone wanting to visit Half Moon bay for a special memory. Loved every single minute of our trek just wish we could do it again tomorrow!!! Life's too... More

I used to ride here when I was a kid and was so excited to bring my 2 teenage daughters to ride. It is obvious that it is under different ownership than when I was a kid. The staff are very friendly, the horses look happy and well taken care of, and the ride is amazing! We did the 8:00... More

One of those experiences that you'll remember a few years from now. It's been years since I've gotten on a horse and some in our family had never been. Very impressed with the safety, introduction to both tour & horse and organization in general. They take safety seriously. No cameras allowed :-/ to keep your attention on trail, horse and... More

This ride really made the top 3 events of our visit to the USA. The woman teaching us horsemanship before heading out was very skilled and easy to understand! I wish she were there when I started out with horses many years ago! I would have made far less mistakes! The horses was lovely! Carrying people in that deep beach... More
