The Deal

  • $32 for a scenic horseback ride ($65 value)

During 90-minute trail-and-beach horseback rides, experienced equestrian instructors guide guests along Half Moon Bay’s Coastal Equestrian Trail, past ocean bluffs and down onto Poplar Beach. Keep your eye out for wildlife in and outside the bay—gray whales, dolphins, red-tailed hawks, and blue herons have all been spotted near this coast.

Sea Horse Ranch

For nearly 50 years, Sea Horse Ranch has attracted dedicated equestrians that care for the ranch’s 80 horses and makes sure each guest has a safe and pleasant experience. Many have been on staff for decades, developing the knowhow to navigate the local terrain and to diffuse intense staring contests between horses.

In addition to leading guided horseback rides along the local trails and seashores, the ranch offers horse boarding. During boarding, your horse will be fed hay and alfalfa, and have some free time to gallop around several on-site arenas.

Customer Reviews

The horses were very gentle and the ride was quite enjoyable

We had a great experience here. We sprung the extra cash and did the beach ride. Our horses didn't want to go near the water, but that was alright, we still had a great time. Our guide took wonderful pictures of me and my wife. He even took some landscape pics and they came out great. The ride was fun and the real professionals are the horses, you're just there for the ride. I'd heard about people coming to Sea Horse Ranch only to see sickly horses. This wasn't our experience. It was a fun time.
