The three of us that took this ride were very impressed with the ride itself, the accommodations, food, and with how we were treated as guests by the hosts! It was a fabulous experience!! The guides were terrific in providing instruction, the scenery was beautiful, and the horses were great. What I really loved about this ride was the diversity of riding—3 days in the Coastal range (and each mountain we were on had something different about it), a day riding on the beach and in the water; and two days in the vineyard countryside . The places we stayed were outstanding (best accommodations I have ever had on a ride) and we were taken to special restaurants for dinner.
For many reasons, I think this was THE BEST RIDE I have been on!
