What you'll do
You will start your adventure at the ranch where you will meet our wonderful tribe of animals. We will connect you with a horse based on your weight, energy, and experience level. While we are getting your horse ready, feel free to hang out with our dogs and chickens. We will take a moment to fill out waivers, give you a crash course riding demonstration, and we'll get you mounted and on our way. We'll explore the gorgeous Santa Monica mountains and possibly stumble across a family of deer. The trails are endless in our local mountains with over 8,000 acres of rolling tall-grass plains, oak savannahs and dramatic peaks with an abundance of local flora and fauna. You will certainly enjoy the peacefulness of the mountains with breathtaking panorama views during a guided intimate ride with our happy horses.
