Marley_W, Sep 2023
Really great ride. I had a relaxing experience and enjoyed hearing about the area and type of horses they had. Also loved that instruction was given on how to ride. Thank you !
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Yes it helps to know how to ride when you are riding! We hope to have you back again for a tour some day, see you soon!
This was amazing!
Jeffrey_W, Aug 2023
Nikki, our guide, was friendly and accommodating. She consistently checked in with our group throughout the ride to ensure we were comfortable and feeling good. Nikki was flexible with the group and when two riders wanted to stop, she finished a portion of the tour, let them off, then took the rest of us on an extended tour. The instructions on how to direct the horses were clear, and Nikki would look back at the group throughout the tour and give us notes on how to hold the reins. The scenery was beautiful, I felt safe on the horse, and overall it was a great experience!

Book This Ride

I’ve been on many trail rides over the years, this was my favorite yet. The owners knew each horses history & their care for them is so apparent. There are over 20 horses, some are for customers, others are still being acclimated to their new home there at the ranch. I felt welcome, safe & laughed literally the whole time. Our guide was the owner & her passion for this Ranch is contagious. The views were like a painting, I could’ve rode there for hours, just beautiful. Trail itself is fine for all ages, a few ups and downs but nothing extreme.
Great ride through the valley
Lynette_C, Apr 2023
The owner was very friendly and we felt comfortable and safe. Good to wear a hat or provided helmet as there are branches along the trail. We stopped at a scenic viewing point and the owner was gracious to take pictures of us. The horses were easy to ride and had good tempermants.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you for the kind review! Less branches now as we did a haircut to the trail, so come back and see us again one day!
Beautiful scenery, great company - all around fun!!

It was a great experience. Highlights were the beautiful view of Lake Sonoma and the path through the Redwoods. We had no experience at horseback riding but it was not needed. Our guide was great!
