The Kenner Ranch

Horseback Riding is what to do in San Diego!
Feed your sense of discovery and go horseback riding in San Diego's Cleveland National forest, or one of the San Diego State Parks or Wilderness Preserves.  Enjoy a horse riding tour down tree-shaded trails of the Cleveland National Forest, take a horseback riding adventure through high mountain meadows in the Santa Ysabel Wilderness Preserve, or ride a horse to the summit of one of the higher mountains in Rancho Cuyamaca State Park.

San Diego horseback rides lasting more than 2 hours can include an optional locally prepared picnic from one of several great restaurants in Julian.  Each horseback riding trail has its own scenic picnic locations, offering a truly natural and remote experience.  (upon request)

To learn more about the ranch, its trails, its wildlife and geographic features, and its access to wonderful San Diego horseback riding trails, click hereDr. (Kathleen) Kenner and the entire Kenner family are deeply engaged in the wildlife living on and around the Ranch.  Encourage us, and we will happily share our experiences and observations of our natural neighbors.

2 and 3 Day Horseback Riding Vacations
For adventurous horseback riders looking for something even more special, we offer 2 and 3 day mid-week horseback riding vacations. Each day's ride will take you and a guide into a new and different San Diego county wilderness park. We will happily help you set up your lodging and dining arrangements for these truly spectacular equestrian escapes.  Horseback riding vacation prices vary, depending on riding selections. 

A fun thing to do in San Diego is horseback riding at the Kenner Ranch
The Kenner Ranch offers San Diego horseback riding at its best.  Enjoy a relaxing one or two hour horseback ride through the historic Julian cattle ranch that is currently set up as a nature preserve.  Horseback rides will take you over 200+ acres of trails, past ponds and a creek, under majestic oak trees, through whispering pine forests, and onto grassy meadows, and bucolic pastures. The ranch borders national parks and some of the best horseback riding trails on the west coast.

Heidi is discovering how curious Buddy can be!

"After leaving the ranch, Heidi and I climbed a small mountain and got engaged at the top!  We had such a great day and really enjoyed getting to know you.  And thanks for letting us hang out with the horses afterwards.  We had a blast.  My vintage camera never started to work, unfortunately, but we were glad to have the little point and shoot.  It worked out great.  Please feel free to use these on your web-site or for promotion or whatever. Take care and hope to see you again sometime!"
Best,  Michael and Heidi

"I just wanted to let you guy's know that the trail ride we took on Father's Day weekend was the best ride we have ever experienced. The ride that Jake gave me and BJ gave my wife we will never forget. It's amazing to know that a horse of Jake's size could be so smooth. The scenery was breath taking and the guided tour was very informative. Kathleen was our guide and I must say she knows her stuff. This was the first horse back riding trip that we have been on that you didn't smell like sweaty horse after an hour and a half ride in 80+ deg. heat. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much for a great Fathers Day that I will never forget."

Sincerely, Gene & Donna.
