What you'll do

Most evenings and each month on the full moon we ride out to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the Santa Monica mountains at night. It is an amazing experience! The terrain is varied so we'll travel over dry arroyos, through grassy fields and through oak groves that were devastated by the Woolsey fire last year! Depending on your level of experience, we can climb up about 700 feet to a lookout point to take in the full spectacle of the full moon or sunset or enjoy a leisurely ride on a wide, flat trail through the park. Either way the magic and fun continues in this 2 hour equestrian experience. When you first arrive at my ranch you'll have time to help groom and tack up your mount, with a riding lesson included in the experience to tune up your skills. This will give you an opportunity to get to know the horses, and give your experienced wranglers an opportunity to assess your skill level and pair you with the best mount for you! Then we ride out in a small group from my front pasture into Cheseboro Park at a slow pace to let the horses warm up. Afterward back at the ranch you'll help the wranglers unsaddle, and if the horses aren't going back out, you'll help feed and grain them, and tuck them in for a good night's rest. This is a magical experience that you won't soon forget.

My ranch is in a secluded canyon north of the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles where I raise goats, sheep, horses and chickens. I grew up with horses in Pennsylvania and have been riding ever since. In fact, my first date with my husband was a sunset ride making this an ideal choice for date night! I've also provided livestock for summer camps and teaching programs. My horses are gentle and well trained. I steward the 29 oak trees on my property and maintain them for future generations to enjoy. Some of my trees are quite old! All in all for the last 22 years I've maintained this small piece of heaven as a natural, pesticide free, eco-friendly haven and I want to share this with you. My son, Wyatt, is a wrangler here at the ranch, too. If you'd like to stay the night check out our listings on airbnb and instagram at twentynineoaksranch.

Where you'll be

The sunset rides follow a flat trail through the park and depending on your experience level may climb up a tight canyon spur to a fantastic lookout point or wind through the oak forest through grasslands before crossing the road to follow a winding trail back to the ranch. Each ride is unique and tailored to you. After a few exciting up and down jogs you'll be back at 29 Oaks where you'll feed and tuck in the horses for the night.

I am a pure novice and my daughter is an enthusiastic beginner. Wyatt made sure I felt comfortable around and on my ride before we set out and once on the trail stayed attuned to my comfort. I feel more knowledgeable and hence more confident after this experience. Thank you Wyatt (and Smokey and Pompous and Tank)! You all were great!

Really wonderful experience. There is opportunity to groom and spend time and bond with the horses before riding them. For experienced riders, there are opportunities to trot and canter. Cantering uphill towards the top of the canyon is a very fun time!

I booked a last minute horse riding trip for my mom and I- and got so much more! We had a wonderful time and it was a highlight of our time in CA. The scenery was exquisite, the horses lively, and our guide Wyatt was exceptionally compassionate and welcoming. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a personalized tour through the hills on horseback.

Lynn and Wyatt were phenomenal hosts. They made us feel extremely welcomed and even introduced us to the other animals on the farm. I got this experience as an anniversary present for my boyfriend so I packed him a picnic for us to eat beforehand and Lynn very kindly helped find arrangements for us to eat on the property. The ride itself was really one of the best! The last time I rode a horse it was in a group of 15 people. Very boring. They originally had three people but seeing that we were a couple, they closed off sign ups so we could have a more personal experience which I truly appreciated. We got to learn so much about the animals we were riding and even got to see their personalities first hand! I will definitely he coming back to ride Stormy again!

More tips

My horses are not hacks. Be honest about your skill level. Helmets are mandatory not optional. In booking this ride you acknowledge that you acknowledge that although we do everything possible to keep the experience/guests safe this is a dangerous activity that could result in injury, pain or death.

What to bring

Bring appropriate clothing including jacket and hat, if needed. Sturdy shoes or boots with a heel (no vanity shoes, please), gloves, if desired, sunglasses and water for the ride.

Boots, if you have them, are better than flat shoes. In fact shoes with a heel work best since the heel keeps your foot in the stirrup properly positioned. We have several pairs of boots to lend and if you email me with your size I will let you know if we
