Temecula Eq-Wine Riders


*  Always ride safely and make responsible decisions.  Horseback riding requires good coordination and a clear mind.  Be sure to have a resident friend along that knows our local trails. RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

*  Many wineries have hitching rails designed for 3-6 well behaved trail   horses to be tied once ridden on to the property.  Most do not allow parking rigs/staging on site due to lack of space.   

*  Larger groups of riders or those hauling in, will need to call ahead to the tasting room mgr. to request permission for a visit.  Avoid weekend traffic and crowds, a weekday visit is much safer for Equestrians.  

*   Please keep in mind that winery events such as weddings, concerts, Sunday brunch, etc. may warrant a change in the rider's plans or route. You are a guest. 

*  Riding vineyard service roads is allowed at horse-friendly wineries only.  Never ride in between the rows of vines or in to special winery venues.  Do not allow horses to graze on winery property at any time. 

*  Locations that allow staging may have posted rules, please adhere to those rules.   

*  PLEASE take your manure home with you in your trailer.  Manure is the # 1 complaint from property owners, managers, visitors and staff.  Please walk your horse alongside dirt roads to avoid manure piles forming in the path where other visitors on foot tours may need to  walk.

*  Monitor tied horses, this is a posted REQUIREMENT at all of the hitching rails. Riders can take a turn at 15 min. intervals to "horse-sit." 

*  No outside alcohol is EVER allowed.  All wineries have this CA law code posted on the premises.   

*  Please respect winery property, trails and equestrian rules. Local folks have worked hard to maintain good relations between property owners, wineries and Equestrians.
