Carolyn was a great guide. Beautiful 1 hour beach ride. Would do it again in a heartbeat! They were chill but I could tell they take their trade seriously.

The owners, Jake and his wife were friendly and hospital. They emphasized safety! Our tour guide Noel, was knowledgeable about the horses and the area itself. The horses were sweet and well tamed. My boyfriend and I regard this as a fun and relaxing date.

The people were very good. The trail ride lasted about an hour and half. The opportunity to ride along the beach on a beautiful day was a great experience. It was special and we will do again. Highly recommended.

Beautiful ride through forest to the beach. Horses were great for beginners (those of us who usually only ride on vacations). Staff was very friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

We did a 4-hour ride through redwood forest. Lots ups and downs through the woods. Horses were well behaved. Enjoyed our ride very much. However, a bit pricey!

My sister is the one who took the ride. I got it for her as an early Christmas Gift. She has been a horse fanatic for 50 years. She said she had an amazing time. I am including pictures.
