Our guide, Hugh, was awesome! He gave us a great tour and showed us the Hollywood sign and took photos for us, too. It was the most relaxing and peaceful part of our trip to LA and Hollywood. If you do not like horses and/or are scared of heights you may want to rethink booking this. The horses walk along... More

My daughter, 2 granddaughters, grandson (10, 11 and 10 yrs old) and I went on the 2 hour ride October 2014 with Cassandra as our guide. The horses were in excellent condition and didn't seem to mind the heat (that we found extreme :) ), and were well matched to our riding experience. I didn't like wearing the helmet but... More

We had a 2 hour ride with Cassandra on Sunday morning - we were lucky enough to be the only ones on the ride which was perfect. It was overcast so it was cooler up there which I would say is the best time to ride as it started clearing up when we were heading back and got quite warm.... More

We've just come back from our 2 hour ride with Becka at Sunset Ranch and couldn't be happier with it. She really took the time to tell us everything from nature facts to local info and trivia. We rode Phoenix and Holly, both horses were extremely well tempered, absolutely calm and easy to ride. You won't believe the views, and... More

The ranch is located up on Beachwood drive, north of Hollywood Blvd. You can get the DASH bus from hollywood and vine instead of getting a taxi which will set you back about $25 each way. The bus ride is just 50 cents each way. The bus will drop you iff at the gateway to Hollywoodland on Beachwood Drive near... More

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
