My dream was to go horseback riding on the beach. My fiance proposed and surprised me with horseback riding. Blue and Dakota were excellent horses. And our guide, Bridget, was outstanding. She even took pictures for us! I highly recommend Monterey Bay Equestrian Center and definitely try to get Bridget as your guide!

We had an Awesome beach ride today with Bridget. She was very personable and went above and beyond to take some great photos. It was a very memorable experience, the horses were great, Bridget was great and the scenery was beautiful at the State Park. We would highly recommend this Ride.

I do not have enough good things to say about this place. We had the most wonderful ride on the beach with Mike and Elijah as our guides. Mike is a lot of fun and easy to talk to and has plenty of experience. Elijah was in training. I am an experienced rider and horse owner and typically when I... More
