Ride on a Working Cattle Ranch

This working cattle ranch originates as a Spanish Land Grant and remains much as it has always been; oak-grass woodlands and chaparral covered mountains. The ride will take place mainly on dirt ranch and County roads. Horse water sources are shared water troughs with cattle and wildlife. The ride crosses through areas where cattle are grazing and wildlife could be encountered. Huasna Land and Cattle Company Ranch is very generous to let us do this ride; please respect the ranch lands and cattle. Please leave gates as found, keep the ranch clean, pick up any litter you see, scatter your manure and excess hay, and pack out all trash.

Kathleen Phelps, the ride manager, gets us excited about riding at this location, “The terrain and the views are spectacular on this 30,000 acre historic ranch. Each loop will take you far into oak savanna that looks like it did in the days of the Spanish rancheros. Come be an inaugural rider on the 25, 50 mile or 8 mile Introductory Huasna Endurance Ride!”

Huasna Endurance Ride is Part of the Central Coast Triple Crown
