What you'll do

High Horse Malibu offers private horseback rides in one of the most secluded and scenic areas in Malibu! Our trails traverse rolling hills, wooded canyons, and striking rock formations, with sweeping ocean vistas around every corner! A one of a kind experience you won't forget.

Right after you book you'll receive an email from us collecting some basic info (physical stats, riding experience, etc.) so that we have the perfect horses tacked and ready when you arrive. Upon arrival you'll be introduced to your guide and acquainted with your horse. We start every ride off with a ten to fifteen minute riding lesson to get you comfortable and confidant. When everyone feels good - we hit the trail! There are plenty of opportunities to take photos and enjoy the beautiful scenery along the ride. Our goal is for everyone who rides with us to leave with an appreciation for horses and a love of riding!

Things to note:

If you plan to take an Uber or other ride share service - please make arrangements for pick up prior to being dropped off. It is difficult (sometimes impossible) to get cell service at the ranch depending on your provider.

The rider weight limit is 200lbs. Exceptions made for riders over 6ft tall.

You must be at least 8 years old to ride. For riders under 8 - ask us about our kids pony lessons!

There is no public restroom at this time.

High Horse Malibu is a small, family owned business with over 20 years experience as horse professionals! You'll be in great hands (and company) with Brian - a Texas transplant, who oversees all activity at the ranch. Brian is an experienced horse trainer and a formerly competitive Western rider and jumper. In addition to guiding private trail rides, Brian also gives natural horsemanship lessons and oversees equine assisted therapy here on the ranch. Nick and Shayna are our two trusty trial guides! They’re California natives who came to High Horse after working on a cutting horse ranch in the area. You couldn’t ask for nicer or more attentive folks to take you on your tour. The stars of the show are really the horses though. Our horses are like family to us. Their well being and your safety are our top priorities.

Our private access trail takes you deep into the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains. To the west you’ll overlook the Pacific Ocean, and to the east the rolling hills and cresting peaks of the mountain range. Each season offers a changing landscape - in springtime you’ll be up to your knees in wildflowers, summer and fall are full of golden hues and sunshine, and winters transport you to a jewel green paradise! This is truly a one of a kind ride.

    This was an amazing experience. The area is absolutely beautiful with great views, not another person in sight. The guides were so nice and helpful and took great pictures of us so we can remember the experience. Pepper and Roja (the horses) were very sweet.

    Absolutely great experience! Took a friend who has been in LA for 3 weeks and we both loved having a one of a kind memory. Appreciated being able to ride without being less on a leash. Everyone was friendly and extremely informative. Would absolutely do it again

    My guides on this trip were the sweetest young couple. The views were breathtaking and the horses were absolutely adorable. I felt safe and enjoyed myself immensely.

    An absolute must if you want to see the best mountain and seaside views available in Malibu. You can tell the owners love their horses and it shows in how tame and well behaved they are! I'd never ridden a horse before today and after only a few minutes of training I felt completely confident. I couldn't have asked for a better first experience!
