This terrific ranch has over 4,200 acres of riding trails. Whether you are looking for lessons or a summer camp, Moss Beach Ranch has everything to offer the horse fanatic.
They offer English and Western riding lessons for kids and adults of all levels including dressage, combined training, Western pleasure, and trail riding. Group, private, and semi-private lessons are available.
Their week-long day camps are a great adventure for kids 6 to 15 years old.
