Apparently,I didn't ask enough questions prior to booking. I assumed we could gallop our horses once on the beach. We were advised to stay in a walking single file line. Kinda boring....

Carolyn, our leader was personable. If we return we'll book a private ride which allows for a bit of galloping, although expensive.

Being on the beach, and the staff was so kind and helpful

Our guide and I'm sorry, but I forget her name. She was extremely friendly and telling us about the local area. She also found the perfect horse for my 17 year old son who has never rode and for myself. I had a couple bad experiences with horses in the past, but she found the perfect horse for me to ride.

Our family enjoyed the beach ride. It was relaxing and fun and I would love to do it again.

They tailor the ride to meet the individual's ability and type of ride they wish to go on. You have the choice of riding in the redwoods, the beach or both.

The staff is friendly and very eager for you to have an enjoyable experience. Best riding facility I have ever been to. There are no negatives with this promotion.
