Fred and Paula are incredibly kind-hearted people that take the best care of their horses and many other animals. My husband and I had a great ride with Fred around the picturesque surrounds of San Juan del Obispo- travelling through coffee plantations, fields being worked,...More

I had the same question! Paula and Fred do not have email, but are often available by phone, and will call you right back if not immediately available. I think you'll find them very amenable, and the riding is spectacular... More
