What Our Customers Have to Say about our Horseback Rides in Temecula

Amazing service and very accommodating, as someone who hadn't been around horses in 10 years the quick lesson before the ride is amazing. I had Sam as my guide and she was very nice. The horses are very friendly and responsive and the nice hands who met us at the gate also helped direct us where we needed to go. The photos came right on time and my friends will definitely be back.

Ventured here for Valentine's Day two weeks ago. An unassuming place but high quality service. Definitely was nervous for my first time on a horse, but the staff made sure I was well-prepared and felt comfortable once I mounted my steed. Nice leisurely trail ride ensued, followed by wine-tasting at a nearby winery (part of the package we purchased). My companion had a blast; loved every minute of it! Respect the fact that some of the animals were rescue horses. Very cool.

This ranch is ran by a family that loves what they do. Everyone helped get us set up and they spent time with each rider going over how to ride and making sure we were comfortable. If you are a beginner or taking your kid for the first time I suggest coming here. The horses were all great and listened to the riders. The trail they take you on isn't hard and it's a beautiful area.

Vin Hester Trail Rides was the highlight of our week! Our guide, Lisa, was very informative & clear while also being super friendly and easy to talk to. The horses are so sweet & will make it hard for you to leave. Would definitely come back if we're ever in the area again

At first I was super intimidated but Elizabeth made the whole process very fun. She's super energetic and made sure we were following her instructions because safety is important as first time riders. I'm definitely looking forward to do this again soon. I hope she's our trail guide again. Loved this whole experience and my horse Whistle thank you Elizabeth, hope to see you soon again

This was such an awesome first time experience! Our guide (I can't remember her name but she was our tour guide on 9/25 at 11 am) was such a sweet and knowledgable guide! We were the only two on the tour and she made us feel involved. The horses are beautiful! I would totally recommend anyone going there. Just be sure to give yourself plenty of time to find the ranch.

Overall a nice experience. Our guide was a young lady that I was a little apprehensive initially but she knew her stuff. After a while my confidence in her grew. Most of the ride was on dirt and I wish that some of the trails will pass through fields. The young girls were friendly and knowledgeable and I would recommend this ride for someone who has not ridden a horse.
