Riding along the coast on golden sand or splashing through surf at the edge of sea on a horse is one of life’s great adventures and, luckily, the Pismo Beach area allows horseback riding on its glorious wide beaches. Trail rides and tours guide riders through the maze of sand dunes, past the bird-filled estuaries and butterfly groves or up into the hills and woodlands for birds-eye views. The 880-acre Pismo Preserve has steep ridgeline trails with stunning coastal views, suited best for more advanced equestrians with their own horses.
Everyone from novice riders to expert equestrians can hop in the saddle and enjoy the splendor of horseback riding in Pismo Beach, as there are trails and tours to suit all levels of skill. Aspiring cowgirls and cowboys can meet authentic horse wranglers and ranchers on riding tours, and multi-generational families can create indelible memories while riding together in nature. Fun awaits for all ages and interests.
Pismo Beach allows horseback riding on its golden sand and through the incredible Oceano Dunes, so it’s an adventure not to be missed. Be sure to tell your horseback riding guide your level of experience as some trail rides require more advanced knowledge of horse handling. Helmets are often required for children.
