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

Me and my friend booked a private evening tour. The Mexican food was massively oversized for European standards but very tasty! Or guide was friendly and chatty even though he didn’t have dinner with us. Griffin Park is beautiful and we had a perfect view over LA/Pasadena/Burbank with sun set. We were a little bit surprised that we were not... More

Lovely big healthy horses which were all in great condition. I grew up with horses so know what a well cares for horse looks like. Trek was awesome with great views throughout. Overall... More

Okay, so most of (i'm not saying all, just most of,) the people who say the place is great, are not riders. They don't have a lot of knowledge about horses, i'm not blaming them, but really us who know how to tell if the horse is happy and if the conditions are good, we say okay, maybe the ride... More

This is an amazing place for trail rides, when i arrived at sunset ranch i went to the office to fill in some paper work. I had decided to do the 2 hour ride as it took you to the top of griffith park with amazing views of LA. Once the paperwork was done we were told to put on... More

Being experienced riders, the tour was perhaps a bit boring, as you can only walk with the horses on the paths. But the views are amazing, and you can get great photos of yourselvs on horseback with the hollywood sign in the background. And the guids were amazing. Only one negative note: we booked (and payed for) a 2 hour... More
