We did the one hour ride. The instructors first ask every individual their riding experience and then pair them up to horses accordingly. The trail was mostly in the woods and then a quick stop at the beach for pictures. Wish we had more time...More

We choose the 2 hour trail ride that takes you through part of the redwoods and the hills right to a short walk on the beach. The guides are familiar with the plant life and the history of the area. If you have not ridden...More
