The one hour guided horse ride was great fun. It was enjoyed by kids as young as 7 and as old as 18 as well as by the adults. Well worth the price. The horses were more or less under control and the tour guides were very helpful. The terrain covered was scenic and pleasant. You can also feed the... More

The trail leads across to Griffith Park & there's a lot to see. Usually ride for 1 ½ - 2 hours, then... More

Renting a horse and exploring Griffith Park is a great way to enjoy an afternoon in the Los Angeles weather. Avoid the summer when it can be hot and uncomfortable but the rest of the year, this is an enjoyable outing.

great ride....scenic view of the park and hills. we went with our Scout troop so there were a lot of us. The guides were helpful. We had some Scouts who had skittish horses and the boys could not handle them well so the guides had to hold the reins for them. Other than that the horses know what to do... More

We wanted to give our grandson's friend an experience riding a horse, since he never had the chance. Should have read the reviews before going. We were lumped together with the so-called "horse riding camp kids." We were never told that ten kids would be going along, or we would have rescheduled. Their instructor never introduced herself as our guide... More

My daughter and I have made this our usual place to unleash and unwind. Julie, the owner, is an awesome woman who loves every single horse and she also loves what she does. This love is reflected in her excitement to interact with us and teach us so much about these amazing creatures. The Rancheros are also very nice, knowledgeable... More

Came here with my wife and children. With the exception of my wife, it was our first time ever riding. 25$ cash only for an hour ride;However, if the rider is over 200 lbs, one has to pay an additional 10$. This is the part where I feel that I need to qualify. Most reviews are either very positive or... More

Was I this scared when I rode a bike for the first time? Probably. And how did I do? Fantastic but it was only because one of the guides walked next to my horse for the first 5 minutes. I mean he walked on the ground, not on a horse because I was such a baby! When the horse did... More

Decided to take my niece and bF riding here on a Saturday morning. Arrived and when we asked if we could walk, trot & canter and we're told "of course.". We ended up in a big group of about ten. The guide was great and friendly but after a while I asked when we could go faster and he said... More
