A big thank you to Tobi for working us in for a ride on the beach. We had a great time. It was an excellent opportunity for our kids. I'm pretty sure they both wore smiles the entire trip. Don't miss this while visiting the Mendocino coast!

We thoroughly enjoyed the 90 minute horseback ride on the coast. The owners were very kind and patient and accommodating to all skill levels.

My husband and I enjoyed the beach ride. Toby and John are the perfect guides for inexperienced riders and especially children. The horses are well-chosen for each rider. The beach was deserted and we rode for over an hour. Highly recommend.

Gentle Horses who know the trail well. The trail starts and ends on a trail near a cliff. I admit it made me nervous at first. It was only my 2nd time on a horse. First time was about 50 years ago! Guide was very helpful and reassuring. Views and uncrowded beach is beautiful. My "saddle" was very sore by... More

My daughter and I recently enjoyed this ride on a Saturday afternoon for her birthday. It's also been a desire of mine to do a horseback ride on the beach, and the Mendocino Coast is the perfect setting. The owner was great and friendly. The horses were gentle and kind, we didn't experience any problems with the horses and they... More

Awesome ride along deserted beach and plateau above the Pacific Ocean. Great excursion for the entire family. The views are spectacular! The horses are sure footed and accustomed to the sand and surf.

Found this place online and so Vlad we decided to come over for a ride. Beautiful and very mellow horses, great lady to lead us on our ride thru the lush hills surrounding the area. Definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a nice ride, either alone or w family. Great time for my family for sure Darren Corron

We enjoyed a 2 hour beach ride recently. The horses were very well behaved and well taken care of. The ride was easy enough for beginners but had a bit of challenge and excitement for experienced riders. The scenery was incredible and our leader Tobi was informative and friendly. Tons of fun!
