We’re smack dab in the middle of wine and horse country. Certainly, we can saddle-up and sip at a winery or two here in SLO County. Riding from Cass Winery to Sculpterra Winery is exactly what my mom and I experienced with Crystal of Central Coast Trailrides. You can too, either with your own horses or with Central Coast Trailrides. Sharon Jantzen lays out the trail from Cass Winery to Sculpterra Winery so you can enjoy a saddle-up and sip ride.
One has many riding trail options available from the Morro Dunes Trail which skirts Montana de Oro State Park. The primary trail takes you along the tip of the back bay then over the sand spit to the ocean on the west side. Sharon Jantzen explores this trail ride location.
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. The sweeping vista views include the far hills of Montana de Oro, Los Osos and down the valley towards Laguna Lake in San Luis Obispo. Sharon Jantzen explores this SLO County horse trail option and provides the details of how to get there and where to go.
To your left Morro Rock rises out of the ocean reaching towards to sky. To your right the shoreline leads you to the sleepy coastal town of Cayucos. These are the options before you on a beach ride at Morro Strand State Beach. Sharon Jantzen explores the entire length of Morro Strand State Beach and provides valuable information so you can enjoy it via horseback.
If you’re looking for a unique way to show off our beautiful SLO County to your friends and family, or if you are visiting from out of town, you may very likely be without enough horses to go on your own – in this case, a guided trail ride is perfect!
