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

My husband and I loved our horseback ride! They were so friendly and knowledgable. We had never ridden before and they made us feel very comfortable. It was one of the highlights of our trip!!

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

We just spent 3 days at Pebble Beach Lodge and I went for a beach trail ride. The staff at the Pebble Beach Equestrian Centre are really friendly and you can tell they take fantastic care of the horses. The trail ride was phenomenal and the views spectacular. It was a relaxing ride and the guide was very friendly and... More

I was on the 17 mile drive when I noticed the signs for the equestrian center. Couldn't resist. The ride is expensive, $90 for 1 1/4 hours. However, the ride is beautiful! Through the cypress forest, along the exclusive golf courses, along the beaches, and over the hills. We actually saw a group of 3 bucks and 2 does that... More

Very nice location and facility. Horses were well cared for and guide was very nice. I did the 75 minute Beach Ride and the views were not that much different than what you see on the 17 Mile Drive. Walk only so is very basic for experienced riders. Would be better for inexperienced or young riders.
