Loved the experience, the staff was friendly, our family had a memorable time, riding horses on the beach was the highlight of our trip to Pismo Beach. Bucket list item for us!

The girls were very patient and chose the right horse for the right rider. They kept everything moving smoothly and the path through the trees was so pleasant. Well worth the price.

Haven’t rode in over 10 years. Place provided a lit bit of everything in scenery. We had greenery, dunes, beach, and trails. Slow paced to enjoy and take photos. Would have liked to gallop for a moment to experience on the beach but I understand...More

We went for a beautiful ride last week. The horses were all very sweet and clearly loved and well cared for. It was a slow moving, nose to tail ride, but we didn't mind at all because the scenery was so amazing. We rode through...More

We are complete novices when it comes to horse riding, however, we had picked up a brochure in our Airbnb apartment advertising these stables... As first time visitors to California, we thought this might be something different to Having called ahead first thing on the...More

Because of RVs and vehicles driving on the beach, you ride about 50 yards from the water. The cost is $60 and I highly recommend it
