Non-GUEST HORSEBACK RIDING
AT THE ALISAL

The Alisal is a historic working cattle ranch and now you can experience the beauty and Wild West adventure of a guided horseback ride, even if you’re not staying at The Alisal. Whether you’re a beginner, or a seasoned equestrian, you can saddle-up and head out on a memorable group or private ride, led by experienced wranglers. With over 50 miles of trails and 10,000 acres of wide-open spaces, the possibilities are endless. You’ll ride through canyons and shaded hillsides, past grazing cattle and sparkling brooks. Breathtaking vistas will surround you, and you may even see eagles soaring overhead.
