Our most popular horse trail ride, the 1.5 hour ride begins at our dude ranch headquarters and follows the trail out the back gate, through the gorgeous fern-lined Indian Canyon, and past splashing waterfalls. The trail that climbs out of the canyon to enjoy the dramatic vista: the rugged Santa Ynez Mountains, the Pacific Ocean, and the Channel Islands off the coast of Santa Barbara. The thrill of seeing nature up close is yours on this popular ride, from hawks soaring on thermal currents, to rich foliage in the fall, and profusions of wildflowers in the spring. No matter what time of year you take this trip, you will enjoy some of the most memorable nature and private horseback riding trails and views on the California coast. Rates do not include a gratuity for your guide.
Half Day Ride
$145 per person
4 hours, from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm. Weight limit is 235 pounds.
Circle Bar B’s half day ride is a true Santa Barbara horseback riding adventure. We leave ranch headquarters and climb nearly 2,000 vertical feet, through three different coastal vegetative zones, to the summit of Refugio Canyon, bordering former President Reagan's beloved Rancho Cielo. Here, the views and the flora and fauna are second to none, from the fern-lined Indian Canyon with its spectacular sycamores and fragrant bay trees, to the heavier woods that are cloaked with oaks, manzanita, and a madrone forest. During the trip back, riders enjoy vast views, all the way from Pt. Dume to Point Conception. Rates do not include a gratuity for your guide.

Private rides are the perfect choice for people that want to enjoy our scenic Santa Barbara horseback riding ranch and the trails by themselves, accompanied only by a guide. On private rides, the guide adjusts the pace to the riding ability and interests and preferences of the rider(s). On our private 2.5 hour ride, we take you to two lookout points that are only accessible on the private rides. Private rides are a great way to celebrate special occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays, or even engagements with an unforgettable horse riding experience. 2 person minimum. Rates do not include a gratuity for your guide.
