The location was nice and we basically had the horses and beach to ourselves. We were given great directions and good instructions. It was a ride that anybody should enjoy.

“Perfect beach ride!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012 via mobile

My daughter dreamed of cantering on the beach so when we traveled to California we promised we find a center that would allow her to do that. Was harder than we anticipated because my daughter is experienced rider but we , her parents were not. We were so lucky to find this organization. Our guide Linda was wonderful and managed to let the experienced riders canter on the beach and let us newbies stay safe at a walk. It was a wonderful ride for all of us. We were happy to walk/ trot while my daughter was thrilled to canter through the surf. Wonderful folks, wonderful well treated horses, and wonderful experience!! You will not be disappointed!

“Check on the bucket list”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Called at 9am and they got us in for a ride at 12:30 which was nice because we had a long drive back to san diego. The horses were well trained and the beach is amazing and isolated so not busy. A beautiful one hour, refreshing ride on a beautiful beach surrounded by sand dunes and rolling waves. There were no other riders at this time so we weren't held back by inexperienced riders. People were nice.
