My partner and I chose the afternoon ride, it was just us two. It was sooo much fun. Was a great ride with buck leading us. Both guides were lovely and informative. We got some gorgeous photos and I can't say how great it was....More

Absolutely the best horse trail guide I have ever taken. The cowboys are incredible and they assign you to a horse. They actually let you Gallup the horses which is extremely special!!! Will go back!!

We took the morning ride. It was down hill toward the ocean. Stopped several times for pics. The horses seemed to struggle on the ride back up the hills.
