Imagine a well-appointed room, with a golf course view, next to the back bay of Morro Bay with access to Montana de Oro trails via horseback at a venue where both you and your horse stay. Does it sound like a dream? It is a reality. Sea Pines Golf Resort has pipe corrals waiting for your horse while you enjoy a comfortable and cozy room – all part of staying at Sea Pines Golf Resort.
“Our horse riding guests think this is an awesome service!” remarks Cindy. Sea Pines Golf Resort has been in business for over 50 years and has been offering horse accommodation for about five years now.
