What you'll do

Once you book your beach ride, we meet you the day of the ride at our ranch located in Summerland, CA. The beach rides are approx 90 minutes long total. We ride from our ranch through the trails down to the beach, we do cross on the over pass and there is a small section where we ride on a public road. Once we are on the beach we ride along the shore with the fresh air, cool breeze and salt water below our hooves. We then ride back through the trails and road to the ranch where we started.
Other things to note
We do require all riders wear a helmet for safety. Please keep in mind, the ranch is a working ranch, with horses, dogs and our staff, we do have a portable restroom on-site and a picnic table.

I have been a professional horse trainer and rider for over 25 years, training with Olympic trainers from all around the world. I am the owner of Summerland Farms and Summerland Beach Rides. I have continued my passion for horses offering these exciting guided tour rides on horseback to the beach and trails in Summerland, CA.
I have been an animal lover for many years, and feel very blessed that I can do what I love. I think each of my horses is very special, and have their own unique personalities. I try to pair up the horses personality with the riders.

Exactly as good as you’re imagining it. Worth the price and more. So beautiful. So memorable. Just a wonderful experience through and through. The trail to the beach was lovely and built the anticipation for the beach. It was just so awesome I can’t say enough.

I did this with my two girlfriends and we loved the idyllic scenery and beautiful beach ride. I was hoping we would get to trot more than we did but otherwise it was great.

This experience was INCREDIBLE. Our leader, Tori, was incredibly patient with two super-beginners in our party who were having trouble steering their horses. We rode right around sunset, so an added perk was seeing the sunset on the beach while riding! My horse, Sprout, was the perfect combination of lively and obedient. I appreciated that they matched us up with horses in accordance to horse temperament, height, and the way the horses got along with each other. If and when I come back to Santa Barbara, I will return to ride with Charlie!

We had an awesome time on Christmas Eve, with Tori as our guide! My two adult kids came up to Summerland for the holiday, and this was the BEST way to spend it. The ride was beautiful indeed and our guide made it special by telling us about our surroundings and guiding us to connect with our horses ..who were such beautiful gentle creatures.
