The ranch offers lessons and clinics to teach various horse techniques to help you improve your relationship with horses and to better understand how to ride.

Heaven on Earth Kayaking and Horseback Riding Tours
A little more on the expensive side, but well worth it, take a trip to nearby Santa Barbara, California. Here Captain Jack offers guided horseback and kayaking tours in some of the most heavenly country around.
Kayak with Captain Jack around the infamous smugglers cove (also known as Refugio Cove) in the morning. Here you can visit the place that not only dolphins, but California sea lions and harbor seals call home. During migratory season you may even spot a Grey Whale cruising by. Enjoy lunch at a nearby resort and then jump on a horse to take in the beautiful oceanfront on horseback.
