We start off at our 14 acre riding center in San Diego, just a short ride from the ocean.
You'll meet the horses, mount up and I’ll give you a short riding lesson. I only take out 2 riders at a time to give you my full attention.
We set off from the ranch on the 1 hour trail to the beach, riding through fields of wildflowers in the lush San Diego river valley nature preserve.
The trail leads us out to the beach. When we arrive at the beach, we’ll have a chance to gallop along the surf if you’re comfortable at a faster pace.
Riding along the water for 45 minutes we’ll spot endangered birds like the Snowy Plover and often see dolphins playing in the surf.
You’ll have a chance to ride into the water midway through. The horses will splash through the waves in a warm shallow cove at the end of the beach.
Our 1 hour return journey takes us back through the San Diego River Valley Nature Preserve.
We ride back through fields of wildflowers in the lush San Diego River Valley Nature Preserve.
At the ranch you’ll dismount and you can wash up in our fully appointed showers and restrooms.
After a long ride you’ll relax ringside in our rider’s lounge or in a picnic area in the shade of one of our many old pepper trees found throughout the property. I’ll provide you with a picnic lunch/ snacks and refreshments to enjoy while you recount your adventure, take in the beauty of the ranch and enjoy the cool ocean breeze.
The ride lasts 2.5 - 3 hours and you’ll have another hour at the ranch for a relaxing picnic.
The San Diego River Valley Nature Preserve is home to extraordinary wildlife and endangered species that only breed and nest in this area.
