Guided Trail Rides

At Sundance Hills, we go on many great trail rides. From the beautiful trails right off our property to Daley Ranch, Rancho Penasquitos, Santa Margarita Riverbed, Ramona, Imperial Beach and even Palomar Mountain.

We offer trail rides to riders who are currently taking lessons, so that they can be evaluated and matched with the best trail horse suitable for their level of riding. Trail rides are also offered to those who currently board at SHEC or are currently leasing a horse.

If you are wanting to schedule a trail ride and have riding experience you may schedule an evaluation lesson with Sara to see which mount may best suit you during a trail ride. Sorry, but we do not offer trail rides to beginning riders.

You may schedule trail rides anytime during the week or in the late afternoon on the weekends.

The cost of the ride depends upon the total length of the ride and the driving distance to the trails. Therefore, a ride at Daley Ranch would cost less than a ride at Imperial Beach (due to the increased cost of fuel and time getting to the destination).
