Santa Ynez Valley
~ Horseback Rides
Enjoy an enchanting Horseback Ride along The Santa Ynez River. Go back in time to Old California on a quiet, unspoiled ride through nature. Perfect for families, couples and horse lovers of all ages.
All bookings receive the Wine Country Fun Pass with free wine tastings, deals and discounts at over 10 valley locations. Riders depart our cozy stable nestled along the tranquil Santa Rita Hills canyon, cross the river, all the while encountering abundant wildlife (eagles, deer, beavers). Rides offered daily year-around.
No riding experience necessary. Kids age 8 and over can join the trail ride if they have some previous riding experience. All kids 8-13 will get their own mount and be attached by lead line to their own guide. The Magical Pony Encounter Kids age 2 to 12 love our one-hour Pony Encounter which is a safe and fun way to learn about horses, with the option of a guided pony ride along the river trail.
Daily 60 and 90-minute Trail Rides along and across the rustic Santa Ynez River.
Daily Pony Encounters for kids age 2 and up. Includes grooming, leading and riding.
