If you want to take a trail ride through the pine forest out to the ocean, this is the place. Trail rides available w/ reservation. No riding experience required. The trail guides are friendly and experienced. If you are a novice or experienced rider, lessons on school horses are available. Even the little kids can take a pony ride.

As a family we have been riding in California whilst on holiday before. We booked the beach ride but the trail only took us to the beach and alongside it,not on it for about 15 mins in total. The rest of the ride was through various golf courses and parts of the Del Monte forest. Our guide was quite regimented... More

We took the 75 minute rides from the equestrian center to the coast. The views were stunning and being on horseback was a great way to admire the views. Since the ride was geared for all skill levels, it was a bit slow and more like the slow follow the leader style when riding mules down the Grand Canyon. Of... More

We arrived early for our horse ride, so the friendly staff told us that we could go look at and pet all of the horses, which was fun. But the real fun began when we hopped on our pre-chosen horse and began for the ocean. The views were breathtaking and unbelievable. Out guide was very knowledgable and talkative and made... More

This is very nice spot and beautiful to watch sea and rocks. You can get several spots for photography. We have not seen sun set. But I am sure it would have nice view of sunset. It was quite sunny day. Hence we got got good view.

We chose the Pebble Beach equestrian club after reading negative reviews about horseback riding in Big Sur. The ride was longer then the one hour 15 minutes advertised. I gave my name at the gate for the 17 mile drive and I was not charged to drive in. The people at the desk were friendly and helpful. Ms V our... More

Although we didn't go golfing, we did need to experience Pebble Beach....and we did it the right way.....horseback riding!! What an absolutely glorious day this was! Only problem you may encounter is some of the golfers are not too keen having you pass by, because you do go right through the golf course.....but your leader will advise you of this.... More
