The beautiful views of the Pacific ocean whil riding on the beach.

The ride through the park and along the beach and just the over visit and conversation with the guide (I think his name is Noll or Noel). Feeling comfortable with the horse, as well as the overall feeling that the guide and owners really care about the horses.

Although I was sure what to expect and being a city guy, I was a little leery about going to a ranch and riding a horse. Once we arrived I was put at ease with the attitude, demeanor and approach of the owner and guide. They explain the nature of horses and gave great instructions on how to ride as well explaining the care of the horses. It was a wonderful experience.
