Larry and Don were great guides! My daughter was fearful due to a horse accident before we left home and they were amazing with her. The history of the farm is interesting and the scenery is gorgeous! The horses each had their own personality. No riding experience necessary! Just get on the horse and let them do their thing. We had a great time!

This tour was relaxing as horses are well trained and the ride is slow paced leading to panoramic views of the ocean.

Easy ride with beautiful views

Cowboy Larry provided a detailed briefing before we left on the ride. 16 of us, including the two guides, descended a steep, wide trail toward the ocean. The wind was brisk, and whipped dust all around us. The views of the coastal cliffs were dramatic, and we passed sheep and goats as we went. The pace was slow, as a couple of the horses would balk and stand still, with their riders unable to get them started again. This required the second guide to come up from the rear and get the horses moving. We stayed on trails, and once in the woods the breeze was pleasant rather than fierce. There was no beach riding, and we never went faster than a walk. Larry was very accommodating, taking pictures of the riders and their horses with an ocean backdrop, leaving us all with nice mementos.

Sad place

This place is so run down and not anything like it promises on line. I was too scared to ride but my husband did and he said they took more pictures than any real riding. The part where they are suppose to canter a bit is about a two minutes long two times. The people were nice enough but I would not recommend this place to anyone. They tell you movie stars were there and that is true, many years ago for a movie. I met a filmmaker that was there. The stars were not there by sole choice. It also was run by someone else at the time.
