Went for an anniversary ride around the hills and through vineyards near Murphys and tasted local wine. Very easy and fun to see inside where others can't go.

Four of us took the 3 hr round trip from the corral to downtown Murphys. Claire was a great guide and the horses well behaved. Rolled into town on horseback and wet our whistles at the Murphys Inn bar. Fun.

I love going horseback riding and had not been in years but we went on some trails overlooking vineyards and the twisted oak winery. The guide was very nice and informative and the horses were great and well trained.
