Our guide was very patient and informative. She made us all feel very comfortable, especially my 12year old who was riding for the first time. We can't wait to come again.

My fiancé and I had a wonderful experience! I’m an advanced rider, and my fiancé hadn’t ridden on over 20 years! I rode Singer and he rode Robin. The horses looked healthy, their hooves are well maintained, and the both horses handled a loose dog running up behind us with only a flick of their ears! Our guide Sammy was wonderful! She handled the loose dog incident with great professionalism. She seems to be well liked by her peers. We will definitely be back, and would definitely request Sammy again!

I paid for an hour ride (private) and the horse I was given refused to go on the trail for the first 30 mins. My guide did nothing to help but blow kissing sounds. Advice to the ranch, if the horse doesn’t want to take (paid) customers out to the trail switch out the horse or provide a refund. Don’t let someone like myself not enjoy the experience when I paid $200!

This was the BEST trail ride and they made sure to ensure social distancing! Misty was a blast and when we come back, I’m definitely going to ride with Sunset Ranch and Misty again!!! Best time ever!! Oh and Misty is a pro with pictures!!!

our tour guide Jaime didn’t seem to happy, he took pics of us and gave us water but didn’t really talk much with us, my horse Ana was a bit slow but it was okay i still enjoyed the ride.
i saw other people taking pics with their horses after the ride ended but after ours was over jaime just took them into the stalls so we never got the chance to take a pic.
i enjoyed the ride regardless but it would’ve been nicer if our tour guide talked with us and if he would’ve let us take pics with the horses when we got off

Our guide (Chris) was amazing. the horses were beyond friendly, and really showed us their personalities on the trail. I would assuredly come back and do this again.

Despite the inclement weather our guide was extremly confident and competant at making 3 novice riders feel calm and relaxed as she so skillfully directed the horses on a magnificent trail literally above Los Angles- the weather cleared and we could see all the way to Santa Monica and beyond - a must do for any trip to LA.

My kids and I had an amazing time with our guide Jason! We had a very warm greeting on arrival and the team took really good care of us setting us up with the horses. Jason was very patient with the kids, taking his time to put them at ease with their horses. We love the tour and will certainly come back next time we’re in LA!

It was a very pleasant and nice pastime. Our horses were very calm and our guide Laura was helpful and nice. The view is breathtaking and even my sister who is somewhat scared of the horses had a great time.
