I went to LA with a buddy that really wanted to see all of the tourist things and the Hollywood sign was one of them. He also wanted to see LA in all of its finery so we booked a horseback ride to the top of Mount Hollywood. We also wanted a view of the Hollywood sign. We got that... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my 2 hour sunset ride through Griffith Park/Mt Hollywood on my mount, Alvin, a sweet little Quarter Horse. Lovely views, great staff, all very welcoming (our female guide was lovely and even introduced me her own horse after the ride). Great views for the entire ride! As some of the other reviewers said, it is dusty so you... More

Visiting from the UK, we thoroughly enjoyed our one hour ride through the Hollywood Hills. We didn't book but were able to ride straight away. The horses were gentle and our guide very friendly and knowledgeable. The views were exceptional and on the day we visited, it was so clear, we could see as far as Catalina Island. Our only... More

My 11 year old son and I discussed our trip flying home, and both agreed our one hour (thankfully we didn't do the 2 hour ride) ride was the low part of our trip and for me the biggest waste of cash for what its worth. I have gone on guided and unguided horse trips in Canada, Montana, Idaho, Asia,... More

The views are absolutely amazing and seeing them on horseback is a fun and leisurely way to do it. Like most trail horses these guys are slow and fat. You can walk as fast as these horses walk, just know that from the start. This is about a leisurely horse walk. You will not look or feel like a Ralph... More

We went at 5pm when the hills are quiet, just a few walkers. The scenery was beautiful, a unique view of LA and the valley. We are all good horse riders but they cater for all and rest assured, the horses and in good condition, well cared for and the guides are safety conscious. I rode a charming paint horse... More

I was extremely nervous about doing this as I had only ever been on a horse 20+ years ago and hated it. I need not have worried the staff were friendly and gave great instruction. The sights were amazing (although with a fear of falling I looked away from the edge a lot) The animals are very clearly well taken... More

party of 6 never ridden before riders from UK on a private 1 hr morning trek. the lady whom took us took some brilliant photos and chatted throughout, we very much enjoyed the horse-riding and it felt western and very cowboy. very enjoyable and fun, many thanks. the pit-bull dog they have at the ranch is adorable.

Sunset ranch was a nice experience for my kids and I. We were 5 inexperienced riders and I chose the one hour ride. The guides, staff and horses were great. We all had a nice, safe, fun, horse back ride. Lovely scenery, old west feel, no technology, good out door fun. I would recommend anyone visiting LA to stop and... More
