Trail riders should put Los Flores Ranch Park on their trail ride checklist. It’s a great place to organize a group ride, ride with a few friends or even enjoy all on your own. Sharon Jantzen talks with Stormy Knight, a Los Flores Ranch Park docent, who shares her experience helping lead moonlight rides at the park.
Central Coast Trailrides is very unique, offering rides at various locations and at differing lengths of time.

Morro Bay Quarry Trail Ride: You will encounter other hikers and bikers and the occasional horseback rider(s) as you enjoy this area. Wildlife sightings of foxes, snakes and birds are quite possible.

Sharon Jantzen explores this SLO County horse trail option and provides the details of how to get there and where to go.
Springtime presents the yellow mustard weed in full-bloom and the bobbing flower heads frame the ocean views on the lower hills of the Pismo Preserve. Sharon Jantzen enjoyed a glorious day riding the Pismo Preserve on a recent Discovery Day. Riding through fields of gold created a lasting memory and she shares pictures of the day and tells us how we can enjoy the wildflower display ourselves.
Ralph Covell, owner of the ranch, took me on a driving tour of the property. As we meandered our way through the herds of Clydesdales, he could look at any of the horses and tell me its name, the sire/dam, offspring, and if the horse had any previous show experience. Chanel Jensen takes a personal tour of Covell’s California Clydesdales Ranch in Cambria and shares her special experience with us.
