Mark was a wonderful, knowledgeable guide and took us through our 1.5 hour tour through the mountain and we ended with a gorgeous, open view of the ocean. The ride was a surprise present for my boyfriend's birthday--he's a first timer and felt no reason to be nervous. He had an absolute blast and is wondering how we can continue... More

The horses are well trained and the guides were terrific. The trails meandered through think woodlands and then came out onto open vistas of the ocean and surrounding mountains. There was a... More

I can highly recommend this place. My daughters just turned 6 and it was her first time horseback riding and she LOVED it and can't stop talking about it. She didn't even need to be on a leash which made her extra happy. The horses are all very well trained that even with no experience you will enjoy horseback riding.... More

The horses were very strong, kind, and tame. The trail was long and scenic. There were many great views of the ocean from the trail. The guide was kind and very helpful.
