San Diego's Premier Beach & Trail Horseback Riding
Relax your mind and invigorate your spirit with our expertly-guided beach and trail rides.

"San Diego Beach Rides is so much fun!!! We came here for my daughter's 9 year old birthday weekend, and she loves horse riding. We did the 2 hours beach ride and its totally worth the trip! The staff girls were really helpful and made the horse riding so enjoyable. 2 hours ride went by so quickly and we really love it!! The staff were really attentive. My daughters horse name was CoCo. And she had a very memorable birthday weekend. We will definitely come back again, thank you!!" ~ Jensen W. from South Pasadena, CA
