What You'll Get
Lucky horseshoes are much luckier when attached to a horse that can predict winning lotto numbers. Associate with blessed broncos with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a one-hour guided horseback trail ride at Pacific Dunes Ranch in Oceano (a $50 value).
The rolling, sandy solitude of the Pacific Dunes Ranch lends itself as a backdrop to calming canters in Oceano. The one-hour tour boldly steps into the watery wild, with horses parading beachside to give modern cowboys unadulterated views of the Pacific Ocean and their steeds’ saddle-less seahorse brethren.
An equine guide ensures riders stick to fire codes while blazing trails and that no one loses the particulate path while traversing the sandy shores and billowing Pismo Beach dunes. Located about 150 miles from Fresno, Pacific Dunes Ranch is a four-hoofed getaway open Friday–Tuesday. Ranch hands prefer that prospective wranglers call ahead for reservations so they can prepare their campfire serenades.
