This stable was wonderful. The horses were all very well mannered, the 1 hour ride was so beautiful and worth every penny of the $50! I would recommend this ride to anyone, such a great ride with great views down to the beach. Nice beach

I know the website says no reservation but I called ahead anyway. I was just in the mood to go on a trail ride and they said they could make it happen. I live in the city so I took public transportation out there. There is no way to walk

Wow...although it was a cold and foggy morning, our experience was fantastic! The people who managed the place was cordial and professional. You cannot beat their competitive prices. What stable offers 1 1/2 hours ride time for $35.00?

I enjoyed a marvelous, sunny ride at Mar Vista today with my seven year-old daughter. I called ahead of time, and while they didn't take reservations, they did recommend arriving before noon, as they weren't sure if they would stay open

Pretty fun 1-hour ride. The horses were well-behaved (sometimes lazy, but you get that with horses half the time anyway, you just need to be firm with them), and the scenery was gorgeous!

The stable, the horses, the wranglers-Zach, Jaimie and Hallie were wonderful! They wanted to give us a good time by asking if we wanted to do more trails or more beach, to customize our experience.\nWe went on the 2 hour ride and absolutely enjoyed it. We took a slow pace and was able to enjoy the surroundings, the flowers, the trails, the birds, the beach. We had great conversation with the wranglers.\nAfterward, we hung around the barn watching others go on their trail ride, little children riding the pony ride and witnessed how safety-conscious the wranglers are. Everyone was happy.\nI will look forward to my next riding adventure at Mar Vista.

Mar Vista horseback riding on the beach is really worth the trip! The trail down to the beach is a winding path-\r\n around fabulous views past wonderful flowers --\r\naccompanied by the sounds of birds. It is a beautiful location. \r\n \r\nAs we rode on the beach, we looked up and could see people handgliding off the top of the mountain (like giant birds). There was a huge ship out on the ocean blowing it's horn as we continued\r\nour ride. Wow. Great sights and sounds.\r\n \r\nThe pace is just perfect to allow the maximum enjoyment of the experience of riding horses ON THE BEACH ! (The ocean-the surf-the relaxing motion of the horses...)\r\n \r\n We liked the ride so much we went on Saturday and came back on Sunday. \r\n \r\n Zack was our guide. He made the whole journey such a pleasure, from the trails he chose\r\nto the care and safety of all the riders and horses. What else can you ask for?\r\nIf you want a relaxing yet exhilarating experience- This is the place! \r\n \r\nIf you want to\r\nrace, rent a go cart!\r\n \r\nWe also rode with Jamie and Hallie who were every bit and more than you could ask for in a wrangler! Interesting and fun, -calmly guiding our group through a thoroughly enjoyable horseback riding experience- in a thoroughly special\r\nlocation. \r\n\r\nThe odd thing is the only review I saw was not much to go on, so I am happy to leave a more accurate and probably more common review of what\r\nmost people experience. Every group I saw coming and going were ALL SMILES\r\nand excited talk. \r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n \r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n

I am not sure where to start one this one but let's start with the positives. \n1- The scenery from the stable to the beach is awesome. \n2- The price is relatively cheap.\n\nAs for the negatives:\n1- The beach is filthy. There was a floating mattress, a pair of shoes, a dead bird, a couple of dead seals, and junk all along the beach.\n2- This place is unsafe for beginners. We were all beginners and I told the ranch that: on the phone, when we first got to the ranch and when we mounted the horses. My horse for example does not stop or turn when asked to. The only thing it will do is follow any horse in front of it. This is safe only if the guide is the person in front. Unfortunately we had an irresponsible guide (Zack I believe his name was) who as soon as we got to the beach refrained from taking the lead so the horses started running and a couple of people almost fell.\n3- Last but not least our guide had a filthy raci$t mouth. He thought that we were running the horses on purpose and not because they got out of control! I'll just list some of his remarks and let you judge if you would like to hear them on your next trail ride:\n""Bullsh##""\n""You f### pi$$ me off""\n""You damn Eye-ranians riding your camels"" (BTW, we are not from Iran)\nAnd finally ""make sure you write your nationality when leaving the review""\n\nI have been in the US/Canada for over 10 years and I have never heard such raci$t remarks. It was a disappointment!\n\nAnyhow, as I said before I believe the guide's name was Zack. \n\nFor anyone who is interested in a professional trial ride on the beach, I would recommend ""Sea Horse Ranch"" at Half Moon Bay.

When my daughter was 3-years old, she used to always tell me she wanted a horse. So my friend from California told me about this Mexican horse stable, so I took my daughter there. The place is well-maintenanced and the horses are very gentle. It doesn't even really stink and my daughter loves it!I will recommend it!
