Horrible...The staff was incredibly rude. From start to finish the only time they were nice was at the end for their tip. Luckily, the scenery was beautiful, but even the horses were old and had a mind of their own. I would NOT recommend going...More

They act like you are bothering them when asking about going for a ride. I am an experienced horse person and they treated me like I was an idiot. The horses were old and stiff, the staff was rude and the ride was a slow...More

Exactly as described on their website. We did a two-hour ride and it was lovely -- a great mix of forest riding, mountain views, and a quick hit of the beach. We didn't have a reservation, but they fit us in anyway when a couple...More

We generally find a way to do some horseback riding on our trips, and Big Sur was no exception. The Molera Horseback Tour was a bad choice. First, the tour does not cover the bluffs and the beach-- this is what Big Sur is all...More

This was the worst horseriding experience I have ever had from a professional outfit!! No only is the "beach ride" a dusty trail ride with 2 minutes on the beach, but the horses they have are very skitish and tempermental, not good for inexperienced riders!...More
