There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.” ~ Sir Winston Churchill[

Monterey Bay has a tradition of horsemanship since 1777 when it was traversed on horseback by the Spaniards. The beach sands are uniquely suited to our Arabians, a breed whose movement has adapted specifically to accommodate moving through sandy desert terrain. Our tours at Salinas River State Beach have plenty to offer for all ages. The fresh air and wildlife are wonderful to experience, and the views are spectacular, too!

Our goal is to provide you with the most pleasurable beach riding experience possible. Whether you are an expert or a beginner, we aim to please!
