Pony Land is a family owned and operated business in Southern San Diego county that was founded by Dan Winne and is now run by his son Garret and wife Jessica. Garret and Jessica are lifelong horse people who met at the ranch in 2001 when Jessica arrived to work there. Over time, Garret and Jessica have worked in every aspect of the business from breaking colts to running the ranch to managing event rentals. After Dan Winne's passing Garrett and Jessica decided to keep the company going. They changed the name from Happy Trails to San Diego Beach Rides at Pony Land. In 2016 the Winne's were thrilled to welcome their new son DJ to the ranch. From their pony rides and petting zoo to boarding, training, breeding American Quarter Horses and event rentals the Winne's enjoy sharing their love of animals - especially horses - with the public. Please come visit and take a ride!
"A lovely experience for me and my friend who was a first time rider and we felt that Christina (our guide) explained everything, and took us on a great ride. She was conversational and very friendly, thoroughly recommend her. Our horses Snickers and Patty were also very well behaved. Overall very pleasant! :) thanks guys! The reservation over the phone went smoothly and was easy to book." ~ Jay S. from Union, NJ
