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.
