Summer Special on Now!

Summer is here and the perfect time for a Beach or Coastal Bluffs horseback ride. Enjoy the beautiful, cool, evenings and spectacular sunsets or start the day

with an invigorating ride through morning mist. 


With our Seasonal Special, the all-inclusive price is $150

per person on weekdays (except during Holiday weeks) and $165 per person on weekends. Inquire about special discounts for groups or families of four or more adults. 


Also, our guests will enjoy two free Two-For-One Wine Tastings nearby at the wonderful Summerland Winery & Carr Winery. Your Summer Special discount and free tasting coupon will be emailed to you upon booking.

Coastal Bluffs Ride for $119

We're now offering a one hour Coastal Bluffs ride daily by appointment for groups of four or more for only $119 on weekdays and $129 on weekends. This fun excursion traverses the coastal mesa and foothills overlooking the coastline, offering awesome views of ocean and channel islands.


We offer 60 and 90-minute Coastal Bluffs rides by appointment year-around. 

Kids Horse Encounter

Children age 2-12 are welcome to do our Kids Horse Encounter, which is a 90-minute lesson that involves our Miniature Horses and ponies. The kids learn to lead, tie, groom, tack and work with the horses. They are then provided either a pony-cart ride with the Miniatures, or a guided saddle-ride on the ponies. This option is the ideal introduction to horses as it helps the kids overcome the fear of being around horses.

magnificent Coastal trails.
