I did a 3h beach ride and it was amazing. I am a passionate rider but they can pick the horses for you for every skill level. I had an amazing time and am very grateful for this wonderful experience!

My guide was incredibly friendly, helpful and extremely nice. My horse was perfectly behaved, and obviously taken care of very well. The scenery was breathtaking. The ride was worth every penny. There are very few places you can ride on the beach in California. I wish I could do that ride every day! I would strongly recommend this memorable experience to everyone! No visit to San Diego is complete without this memorable experience.

Eileen was very personable. She led our party of two out to the beach and back on a great tour. We will be back.

I booked a 3 hour beach adventure for March 20th at 2 pm. I received a call at 12:25 pm if we'd be willing to push our private party from 2 to 3 pm. I advised the ranch we will be coming early as we planned to eat after the ride as my 12 yr old was a bit nervous eating beforehand. Eileen the manager of the facility came rolling on the ranch at 4:15 pm with another party. Our 3 pm got shoved to 5 pm. Now we're in a bit of negotiation as the sunset was showing to be at 7 pm. I was advised it's an hour ride to the beach through the trails and 1 hour back. Our trip will need to be cut short and that horses are not taken to the beach like it was advertised and need to be back before sundown. I requested for a partial refund was possible since the negotiated time of 3 pm was pushed to 5 pm without permission. I had 2 kiddos with me, who waited all day. Eileen was on the phone with her mother (while the horses were eating and getting food to go back out), the owner of the ranch and advised I would be compensated for the ride if it's cut short. We left at 4:50 pm and rolled in at 7:14pm going 7.82 miles around trip. We spent 14 minutes on the beach when the expectation was 3 hours to overlook the ocean and potentially view dolphins as described in the description. I understand the Ranch cannot control what we see, however they can hold to a negotiated start time to be ON TIME and provide a service someone signed up for ON THE BEACH not 2 hours of trail riding. Boring, I can do that in our back yard. The experience was to be ON the BEACH. Last but not least, you ARE required to remain in line cannot go side by side behind the guide. So another point of false advertising. Buyer beware. Thank goodness our guide who was thrown at us last minute spoke up when she felt my 12 yr old should be a different horse because the guide didn't feel comfortable with 2 horses with behaviors she had to keep under wrap. That is the only reason why I chose to go ahead and not disappointment my kiddos. By the time we hit up a restaurant it was after 8 pm - over 8 hours without food. Cranky kids with headaches. Thanks, just thanks. I still expect a refund and took a screen shot of our time on the horses so you cannot dispute the time.
