Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance should I make a reservation?

Please schedule at least 24 hours in advance of your planned visit.

Will I receive a confirmation?

Yes. A Free Rein representative will contact you within 24 hours of you completing and submitting the Reservation and Consent Form.

Is there a cost?

Yes. Through this tour, you are helping to support the non-profit, all-volunteer Free Rein Foundation, which is 100% donation-dependent. Previously, the vast majority of our funding has come through hosting fundraising events at the HCP Equestrian Center. Sadly, these events have been canceled since early 2020 due to Covid-19. More than ever, Free Rein Foundation needs your gifts and appreciates your generosity!

Suggested donations are: $35/person; $50/couple; $75/family (6 max); $200 for groups of 7-10; ages 2 and under free. Discounts are available for AAA members and military veterans. All proceeds will be used for the care and feeding of the Free Rein herd.

How long is the tour?

The duration is approximately 90 minutes.

Is everyone qualified to participate?

All ages are welcome. Because we will be walking over some semi-rugged terrain, guests should be in moderate of better physical condition. We suggest only bringing all-terrain wheelchairs or strollers. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Are dogs allowed?

No. Dogs are not allowed in the Equestrian Center or pasture. Dogs are welcome for the second half of the tour through the Urban Forest, if you can make safe arrangements for your pet during the first portion of your visit.

How many people will be on the tour?

For your safety and optimum enjoyment, tours are limited to 10 guests.

What should I wear or bring?

Sturdy, close-toed walking shoes or boots are strongly recommended. The pasture and trail can be quite dusty, so best not to wear clothing you don’t want to get dirty. If it’s been raining in the past week or two, the barn area will likely be very muddy, so it’s best to wear boots you don’t mind getting dirty.

If I cancel, can I get a refund?

Cancellations with a full refund are given if made at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled arrival. Full refunds are also provided should severe weather cause cancellation.

Can I feed the horses?

We ask that you refrain from feeding them. Many of our horses have health conditions that require special diets. While they are likely to enjoy receiving a snack, they may not be able to chew or tolerate these treats.

Where does the tour begin and end?

Please park in the Huntington Central Park Dog Park parking lot, located at 18000 Edwards Street, just south of Talbert Avenue. The tour concludes with a tour through the Huntington Beach Urban Forest, and we will take you back to where the tour began.

Are there restrooms?

Restrooms are available near the parking lot.
