What you'll do

You will start your adventure at Sunny Dust 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.

    I took my bf for his birthday and we had such an awesome time. Cleo is amazing and made it a really cool experience for us! Very pretty trail and well worth the price overall. I would recommend to anyone!

    I surprised my husband with this adventure and he had not been on a horse since he was six years old! We couldn’t have had a more pleasant and enjoyable ride. Ryan was fantastic and the horses were lovely. This was especially meaningful to me given that my husband has been afraid of riding since a negative experience when he was young. Ryan made everything easeful and the horses were perfect as well!

    My wife and I had an amazing time! Cleo gave a quick, very helpful tutorial on how to ride and guided us on a beautiful trail. The whole experience was rejuvenating and we would definitely love to go again.

    My girlfriend and I had the most incredible time galloping around Calabasas with Ryan and his beautiful horses. The weather was perfect, the views were heavenly, and the horses were so well trained. Highly recommend this experience!

    We loved our mountain horseback riding w Ryan! We had magical views of the mountains! Being somewhat of a beginner I was glad my horse was very gentle on me and Ryan’s lesson beforehand was reassuring. We even spotted beautiful deer along our path. Would definitely recommend this experience! Ryan was a really cool guy to ride with and recommended the best cowboy brunch of biscuits and gravy after! Thx Ryan!

    This was a lot of fun and I definitely recommend this experience to anyone who wants to get out of the “city life” and experience breathtaking views, connect with nature and animals and just overall be in the moment on the back of a horse. The hosts were also lovely - thank you!
