We went on the 3 hour ride in the redwoods for our 21st anniversary. It was completely fantastic. The Lorie was an excellent guide and her horses were well mannered and trained. My wife and I hadn't been on horses in over 20 years, but it didn't matter because the horses knew what to do and they did their job well. The trail itself was well maintained, but we went after a few weeks of rather heavy rain and there were a few places where the trail was blocked. Lorie was prepared and able to clear the trail quickly and get us on our way. I would highly recommend Crescent Trail Rides for anyone wanting to borrow a bit of freedom in the redwoods.

We had a marvelous time during our horseback riding along the beach. There was a nice combination of the trail through the meadow, along the sand dunes, on the beach and even in the woods so it was Beautiful scenery all along the way. Our guides were friendly, informative and easy-going. It was fun being on a horse along the dunes and the beach. It was also a small group, and that kept it intimate and friendly. I would definitely go riding with this company again, next time probably trying the trail into the redwoods.

Trail goes deep into the woods with great views of many Redwood Groves. Guides were very informative on the history and other facts about the area and provided photos of everyone along the trail at the end. Bring an Iphone if you have one for quick sharing. I'd like to go back and try the beach trail next time. This was my first time on a horse and it was surprisingly easy with well behaved, trained horses. Fun Time

We have returned and risen with Crescent Trail Rides for the past 6 years. We started with a young Daughter who is now 11 and the past two years we enlarged our party to include another family with 2 other youngsters. We have tried all of the rides and have always had a great time. If doing the beach ride check the forecast for high winds (lol).

Being able to share this experience with my niece and her 8 year old daughter was the highlight for me. She has just started riding and was so excited about her first trail ride. Lori did a great job from the beginning to end. She made sure the horses were a good fit to each rider. She gave a good interpretive description of the area but also allowed a lot of quiet time to soak in the beauty of the area.

Lori is a great guide, attentive to the horse's and riders’ needs while also assessing trail hazards and communicating what lies ahead. The horses are well behaved trail veterans. They step over rather than jump fallen branches and keep riders safe. Gorgeous redwoods along the trail. Highly recommend!

There was no shortage of stunning views and coastal wildlife viewing during this 2hr adventure. When we rode down the sand dunes to the beach we were treated with a magnificent view and never saw another human in either direction - as far as the eye could see! I only wish we would have had the freedom to go beyond a walking pace at some point in the trip. Running a horse on the beach is one of the greatest memories I’ve ever had - I would have cherished the opportunity once again. Nonetheless it was a fantastic experience for myself and my girlfriend. The rest of our small group enjoyed themselves and everybody stayed safe and relaxed the entire time (including the horses).

We had such a wonderful time, it was just my boyfriend and I on the tour, our guide was so nice and knowledgeable. It was definitely a peaceful ride and Rigs and Danny were great horses. Next time we will do the beach tour. We would definitely recommend this to couples who want a peaceful experience. 3hrs was kinda long considering he had never rode a horse before and it had been 20yrs since I had, we were definitely sore the next day, but other than that it was a great experience!

We had such a fun time! Our group of four ranged from ages 8-70 and everyone was well taken care of. My kids are of the extreme wiggly variety and Laurie and her staff were so patient and kind to them even when I was ready to pull my hair out. Her horses are obviously well taken care of, and I liked that she got our height-weight info ahead of time so we didn’t have to stand around while they sorted out horses. Everybody was already assigned and we got right to it. It was a lovely ride through the Redwoods, and I would love to do the beach ride someday. A great way to spend an afternoon. Highly recommend!

Beautiful rides with well mannered horses, I’m a repeat customer and can’t wait to go riding again. The trail guide is informative on the flora and fauna in the areas you’re riding in, as well as the history of the land which I love hearing about. Recommend this place for anyone wanting a relaxing riding experience!
