Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced rider, you’ll feel right at home on our horses. Enjoy the scenery as you ride through some of the most beautiful country and landscapes in Poway and beyond. About 90% of our customers have never been on a horse. We’ll show you the basics of riding to keep you safe and get you comfortable. You’ll continue to build confidence and expertise with our wranglers throughout the ride.
If you’re an experienced rider, you’ll appreciate the quality of our horses and will be delighted by our selection of challenging trails. This is your opportunity to do exactly what you love — ride horses — and what better setting than the gorgeous terrain of Poway, San Diego.
With multiple horses to choose from, Poway Equestrian Center will partner you with one of our horses according to your ability, size and, equally as important, personality and temperament of the horse. Rides are designed with no more than two to ensure a more customized ride with our wranglers. Please contact us if you have special reservation requests. All reservations may be done online by using our calendar to Schedule Your Ride Now.
