Livermore Valley Wineries and Gold Rush Trail


Livermore Valley Wineries and Gold Rush Trail
California USA

Explore the beauty of California's scenic coastal trails while enjoying the comfort of the Tennessee Walker’s unique “running walk” and “rocking chair canter.”  The Tennessee Walking horse is known for its gentle disposition and affectionate manner and we believe riding one of these superb gaited horses will truly spoil you for the rest of your life! Ride through the California coastal grassland, the colors of the seasonal wildflower filled meadows and stands of ancient Redwood trees. You will cross pretty creeks and encounter local wildlife ranging from the elegant herons and proud hawks to quick and nimble deer and even possible sightings of the more elusive coyote and bobcat with the spectacular Pacific Ocean as your backdrop.

A short drive from San Francisco or Monterey along the scenic coastal highway (often considered one of the most beautiful stretches of road in the United States) will bring you to the heart of the Livermore wine country 50 minutes from San Francisco.  We are in the more rural and isolated parts of Central California surrounded by State Parks and Protected Open Space.
Things are different in the Livermore Valley. This compact, sunny wine region's unique layout features clusters of wineries and encourages a new definition of wine touring and horseback riding.
