Riding horses on the beach by rocks covered in seals is not something we do everyday.

Very rural area of northern California. Pulling in, the ranch was not initially the setting my wife pictured, but everyone was very friendly and the ride was picturesque.

The ride going from the state park out to the beach was beautiful. the weather was nice and we had a great guide. The horses were well behaved but no robots either. The whole experience was great

I'd have to say... EVERYTHING. My girlfriend and I were up staying at her dad's new house and thought we'd try out horseback riding since we saw the add on TravelZoo. We showed up and had to wait a bit for another couple, but not a big deal at all. It was fun just looking at the horses and petting the adorable cats who live there as well. Zoe was our guide (who is simply the BEST) and it was just my friend and I with her which made it a very special, intimate adventure for us. After we go to and rode along the beach a while, Zoe stopped us at a beautiful spot in front of crashing waves and took pictures for us which made for perfect memories to take back home with us. We'll be back for sure!
