The ride was amazing, the workers were great, and the horses were very well behaved! I highly recommend this company. My only complaint is that we signed up for the advanced ride, meaning it was for people like me and my daughter who had ridden horses many times before. There were several people on our ride who had never ridden horses before. This really took away from our experience because we weren’t able to canter on the beach like we wanted to, because the other riders were not experienced enough. Please don’t sign up for the experienced ride if you are not experienced. There are other rides you can go on, and if you don’t know how to ride it takes away from the experience of others. Please be considerate of the people who actually know how to ride. With that being said this ride was still very fun and absolutely gorgeous and we did still get to trot which was nice. Overall amazing stable that I would recommend but please choose the ride that is a good fit for you and your experience on a horse!
I have been riding here every few years, for over 30 years. In the past I had several rides that were frustrating and the company seemed to be getting less and less organized and unprofessional each time I went. Maybe 8-10 years ago, I took a friend who was not a rider on a ride and our small group went down the beach as we watched our guide gallop around way out in the surf on his horse, unconcerned for our group's safety. Luckily nothing bad happened but I was frustrated knowing several in the group were inexperienced riders. I took a break for a few years and dropped in on a whim...I noticed the horses looked healthier, the place was spruced up, and heard there was a new owner. More rides were offered. I had a great easy beach ride with a nice guide then. My friend and I did a private ride 2 years ago and had a nice time. Everyone was professional and courteous and safe. This year we went on a "Morning Adventure Ride" with our guide Emily. She was clear, kind, easy to talk to, experienced and patient with both groups. We all had a great time and the whole experience met, and even exceeded my expectations. I look forward to returning again and again!
First time rider and I was beyond impressed with qualities of my overall experience. Starting with safety precautions implemented by amaGzing staff, variety of beautiful well taken care of horses, trail leading to coastal view and value for your dollar. In planning our adventure their were other places closer to home, but we got more riding time and it was cheaper then their competitors. This place is well worth drive and I will only be choosing C & M stables for future rides.
Really enjoyed the beach ride, super relaxed horses that are well in shape, and the Ladys were really good tourguides. Taking their time to match the riders abilitys to the horse. Beautiful beach and made it as save as possible to cross the road. Can recommend for beginner and advanced!
Awesome! Always a great time! Be sure to dress in layers if you do the beach trail, it's always so cold and windy! Be sure to ask for a horse that will trot if you want it to trot on the beach. (Cinco only wanted to walk, no matter what I did).
