Horseback Ride in Santa Ynez Valley

You may feel you are in a cowboy film when you see those horses – perfect proportions, strong muscles, smooth shiny coats. The saddles are fitted for your height and weight — if you are new to horse riding, you never thought it could feel so safe and comfortable. 

Now you set off, led by a guide who will choose the best paths for you. You will admire the semi-arid beauty of Santa Ynez Valley at the most natural pace, that of a traveller on horseback. The silence around is broken only by hoof beats, the jingling of metals and the squeak of saddle leather.

Just go slowly, drinking it all in; or if you like, race each other at top speed. The day is yours, cowboys.
