We offer wonderful horseback rides along Monterey Bay. Our horses are well cared for and the guides are friendly and helpful. Our stables is located as published but our horseback rides on the beach are located at the Molera Lot of the Salinas River State Beach. It can be found at the end of Monterey Dunes Way. Please rely on the directions found using the map to the beach link on our website.

Wonderful experience with excellent staff and service. Very helpful and well-organized. They even fit in a couple additional horses for some extra riders the morning of our ride and were able to safely accommodate multiple children from eight-years and up. Everyone enjoyed the experience.
