We enjoyed a great one-hour (beginner) trail ride with Linda and a few other girls who either work there or were there for day camp. The trail is beautiful, the horses are exceptionally well cared for, and the ranch itself is very cool: a number of different farm animals call it 'home' as well as the horses.

Went here for a sunset ride for our anniversary. Absolutely amazing. Linda was a great guide. My horse Bright was a good listener. :) Definitely will visit again for the 2 hr tour, although our guide took us for nice long hour ride.

Enjoy great views of the Ojai Valley on Horseback. Excellent horses, guides and trails. Close to down town, only 10 min. Family fun too! Other animals to see and pet.

These ladies got it together. We did a very relaxing and scenic ride with our children. There is a small, but cute petting zoo. The horses are gentle. The staff is friendly and informative. I would put it on the must-do list of things to do in Ojai.

My 5 year old twin girls loved this place and didn't want to leave, we ended up doing pony rides one day and trail rides two other days. Sue (the owner) and Linda make you feel really comfortable and in great hands. Within a couple of minutes they had the girls using the reins to direct the ponies. I had... More

My kids enjoyed it but the only negative thing was the horses would eat the grass along the way & then get sidetracked off the trail. At least it ended with pictures of my kids holding bunnies since it was during Easter.

We spent a weekend in Ojai, and took our twin 5 year old girls horseback riding. The scenery was spectacular. The staff were wonderful and incredibly patient with our girls. Linda in particular, was a gem. I was pleasantly surprised that they let my girls ride on full grown horses (not on a trail, but around the ranch and in... More

This was my first experience with horseback riding and there are quite a few places to choose from in Ojai. I booked my ride last minute and they were able to accommodate us (score!). Had a wonderful time on a 1 hr ride (though of course I get the hungry horse that wanted to stop and eat every 5 feet),... More
