I'm more trying to reach them to make a reservation but their phone line doesn't go through. How can you make a reservation? There is no email either- ideas? I'd love to book something thanks!

Very picturesque ride
Jan 2020 • Couples
The stables are on the Palisades which is about 50-100 feet above the beach. We rode in a group of eight to the shoreline, then on the beach for a while then back up. Checking in went well and the horses seem to be well cared for and well fed. There were two guides, one at the front and one at the back, who were polite and helpful. The ride itself was leisurely with only a trot or two, and no galloping. The scenery was amazing.

Chauvinist, judgmental staff
Nov 2017 • Friends
Once we got on the horses, it was wonderful. However, like Laurie20180615, I was insulted about my weight by the guy who was putting us on the horses. "How much do you weigh?" he asked with obvious disgust. He pretended to be concerned for the horse, but there were men in our party who weighed as much as I did, and they were accommodated without incident.

Unbearably rude rancher
Jun 2018 • Family
The scenery was beautiful. It could have been a great experience if I have had not been called a f*** lady in front of my family many times, by the male rancher. My 11 year-old son had to hear him cuss about me for 10 minutes straight. All that because my horse stopped on the trail. When another tourist took my defense, the male rancher yelled at him, and told him to shut up. Besides this, my son's friend was given a anxious/tired horse, that scared him. He switched horses midway, but had to finish the ride on foot. The rest of the staff was okay.

Beautiful ride with professional guides
Jun 2018 • Couples
This is a basic stable with quiet, well cared for horses. We made reservations ahead of time, our horses were ready and we left exactly on time. The horses were a good weight, hooves were in good shape, and well groomed.

This is a walking ride only, but as experienced riders we still had lots of fun. There is no opportunity to canter on the beach (which they told us over the phone when booking), you have to respect a stable that does the right thing for their horses as the beach is quite soft sand.

The walk from the stables to the beach descends a steep hill, other reviews call it a cliff but that is a big stretch. You descend a series of switchbacks, none of them particularly steep. In June the hill was covered in beautiful flowers.

We used Uber to and from. About 30 min from Nob Hill. A great way to spend a few hours - where else can you ride on the beach this close to a major city?

The tack was western.

Best views, perfect day

Well kept horses. The staff no doubt loves their animals. The view was amazing. Anytime I'm back in North Cal I'm returning. My horse, Summer, was a character. She kept me safe on the cliffs. Saw some whales every few minutes on the trek. Beautiful atmosphere. Love Mar Vista stables!

Spectacular views, fantastic guide
Jun 2017 • Family
Similar to what other world travelers have noted, this experience is near the top of my list. I have been on a horse a handful of times in my life. The last time was two decades ago. But our guide Charlie was great in providing guidance and quickly made me comfortable.

The views are absolutely stunning! We had great weather for our noon ride (sun was out, not too windy). There were hardly any people on the beach. There was a large school of dolphins not far off the shore. My wife and 10 year old daughter were amazed while taking it all in. Thanks Charlie!
