If you want to tour Golden Gate Park, there's a new option beyond renting a bike. The Rec and Parks Department has brought back trail rides.

It's been decades since horseback trips were offered in the park.

The horses were brought in from Arizona to gauge public interest. The trail ride goes around the park to the beach.

It's a very different experience for park visitors and for the horses.

"Most of these horses, they have never been close to a vehicle. Where I am from, in Phoenix, we are out in the desert," wrangler Ace Mann said.

Horseback rides will be offered at Golden Gate Park until May 20. Click here for more information.
