Pony Land in San Diego offers a unique opportunity for horseback riding on the beach. While you've been many times to the beach, this is a totally different experience. The beach tour is 2.5 hours long, which is considered to be longer than standard tours. You will go through beautiful trails and once you get to the beach you will be riding it for approximately 30 min. This tour is very relaxing and immerses you in nature. You feel so present and free while horseback riding on the beach!

Are Reservations Required?
We recommend reservations so we are prepared for you as soon as you arrive. Riders with reservations are always given priority but we always try to accommodate walk-in business. Please keep in mind that we need at least 20 minutes to ready your horses depending upon your group size. April thru October is our busiest season so reservations are strongly recommended.
Do We Get to Run The Horses?
None of our rides include galloping or “running”. We allow walking and trotting only and we always ride to the ability of the least experienced rider in the group. Trotting is allowed only on trails going away from the barn, we do not allow any trotting towards the ranch. It is up to our guide’s discretion to determine experience levels no more than 5 minutes total. Only experienced riders are allowed to trot. All group rides are walking only. This is for the safety and enjoyment of both riders and horses.
What is the Minimum Age for Riders?
Trail riders must be at least 6 years old. All children 9 and under are put on a lead line for trail rides and for everyone's safety, there is no exception to this rule. Our minimum age for hand led pony rides is 2 years.
