$199 for a Private Horseback Ride and Picnic for Two ($450 Value)
Seasoned instructors introduce two guests to the nuances of horseback riding with an introductory lesson that covers the basics of horse control and more advanced safety techniques. Horse-toppers roam the tree-spotted bridle trail to a private bistro table nestled alongside a babbling creek. Though guests must provide the meal, the Bella Oaks Stables’ staff can secretly set the table and lay out the entrees to surprise a significant other or flatter a deserving horse.
Bella Oaks Stables
Staffed by native East Bay trail explorers and expert riding instructors, Bella Oaks Stables fosters trained and fulfilling relationships between horses and their enthusiasts. Nestled among towering oak trees and gentle rolling hills, the fleet of majestic equines tote riders through lessons, community field trips, and trail rides, all under the guidance of a doting congregation of caretakers and volunteers. Seventeen summer camps for all ages and an apprenticeship program for more advanced riders instill saddle savvy in patrons of any experience level, and those pining for nature can meander through 80 miles of lush scenery and 1 mile of sci-fi-movie scenery for an afternoon trail ride.
