Horseback Riding in Oregon

Willamette Coast Ride


Enjoy all Oregon has to offer by horseback, complete with wine tastings and beach riding. During this riding tour in the Pacific Northwest you will stay in comfortable inns starting in the burgeoning wine country of Willamette Valley, and continue through the Coastal Range mountains to end on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. This is a point-to-point ride that has both adventure and luxury with wine tastings and riding through vineyards, ascending forested mountain trails, and galloping on the beach! The hosts and their horses provide a unique European feel while still maintaining the west coast sense of adventure.

Accommodation is in small bed & breakfasts or private condos or rental homes, all with generous hospitality and a great feel for the Pacific Northwest.

Breakfast at the accommodations, picnic lunches and three dinners are included. All meals are farm-fresh and local, including seafood on the coast. Two wine tastings are also included, depending on interest.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1


Arrive in McMinnville in time for a 7:00pm meeting with your hosts. Spend the night at a bed & breakfast, in the prime wine country of the Willamette Valley. The nearest airport is Portland (PDX), about an hour and a half away. You can rent a car from there or we can give you suggestions for transfers. Dinner not included in trip price, can be location of your choice.

Day 2


After breakfast at the B&B, meet at your hosts’ farm in Carlton at 10am (drive yourself in a rental car or use a transfer service). Your first ride allows you to view Kendall Jackson and Lois Jadot vineyards as you get to know your horse.

Stay another night at the B&B, enjoying dinner with the riders tonight.

Stay tonight in a beach view house, enjoy the beach sunsets, walking on the beach and hearing the surf while you sleep in the quaint coastal village of Neskowin. Dinner will be an informal pizza, pasta and salad dinner in your beach house.

Start the day with a warmup ride through an old Dairy Farmland and then hack through the village of Neskowin. Ride on the beach by the dramatic and picturesque rock formations.

Climbing up the beautiful sand dunes allows for rewarding sights of the pacific. Picnic at a site with tables and bathroom facilities before continuing on to Neskowin.

The Willamette Coast ride was the best ride I have ever been on.  The guides were amazing in every way, the scenery was fabulous, great food, but most important were the fun riders from all over and the excellent horses.
