It was one of the best days ever, the guides are super nice and friendly and the experience is like a dream! I would definetly come back and do it again and recommend it to everybody who is coming to LA!
The staff was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and considerate, offering everything from taking pictures to guidance for the specific horse you're on. The food and atmosphere after the ride were brilliant as well.
The staff was great. The experience was surprisingly child-friendly. We had two inexperienced kids with us and they had a great time. The food and band were awesome!
The horses are amazing , and the staff was wonderful .
The trail ride was great! Loved the horses and our guides were wonderful. Katie and Tempest were very patient and shared their knowledge about the horses and the area. The BBQ was disappointing though. The food choices were very limited. We were maybe the third group to return from the ride and seating was scarce and what was available was dirty from those who dined before us. And then there was the flies....oh my the flies! I realize it's a ranch but wonder if there is not anything that can be done to help that situation. Screen the area in? It was hard to enjoy the food and listen to the band.
Staff was patient, kind and attentive . Alex was awesome. Band after ride was very talented especially vocals . .
We loved our ride and the BBQ was delicious! a thoroughly enjoyable experience!
The guides were really friendly and you could tell that they really cared about the well-being of the horses. All of the horses look well cared for. We had a great ride... too bad of the hazy conditions, but it was still so much fun. Good BBQ grub and the musicians were very talented. Would definitely want to try the longer ride next time, but not sure the others are willing to sit on a horse for that long.
We loved it! The horses were so well trained and the trainers were fantastic! The music was so relaxing perfect after the 2 he ride. And the food was amazing!!! Recommended to my family and friends and next time I will bring my bandana :)
Loved it! From the long ride to the BBQ dinner and live music, it was the perfect package!
It was a fun adventure and something new to do in LA. The staff was great. The food was very good. 5 stars!
Helpful, experienced staff and ride guides, beautiful scenery, spectacular views of Los Angeles as far as you can see. Besides the horses, there are pigs, donkeys, ponies, ducks, and chicks hanging around to pet and feed . Very friendly vibe, yummy food, awesome band. Horses look well-cared for. Nice facilities. I will definitely go back!
Had a wonderful time! All the people who worked there were great and the horses were well trained. Can't wait to do it again!
We had a wonderful time. We found the horsemen and women, mostly women to be very easy going and clued into safety as well as having a sense of how to keep everybody happy. The matching of horses to people and skill level wand attention paid to each rider and horse was so appreciated. The ride itself has fabulous views and is quite nice. The after ride was homie and the food was very good and plentiful and the 3 person band was fantastic. We really really enjoyed our time at Sunset ranch and highly recommend it!
That was an amazing experience. My horse, Secret, was a little bit of a challenge. Though I know she's a sweet girl. Oh Mares. We loved it. We'll be back.
It was my first time on a horse for more then 30min I was very nervous - the guide Julio was so professional patient and helpful during our two hour ride to make me comfortable on our 2hr ride. The food was great the live music area was nice and welcoming. All of the staff was so accommodating. We defiantly plan on returning.
This was our first time riding a horse and we had a great time
My partner and I had and excellent time at Sunset Ranch. Our guides were friendly and helpful, and our horses were amazing. Thanks again!
We enjoyed every bit of our experience. The food was amazing! The staff was so nice and so accommodating. We loved all the animals around the stables too! I have already recommended Sunset Ranch to several friends.
It was amazing! The views were spectacular, the ranch was beautiful and clean, the horses were brilliant and well behaved, the guides wrre friendly and informative of the area, and, the food was delicious!! Would highly recommend, was the highlight of my trip to the USA!!!
The staff was very friendly and our guides were very knowledgeable and funny. They made the ride enjoyable. The band was amazing.
Amazing experience. Amazing staff. Amazing food !!!
Had a great time.You guys did a awesome ! Defiantly want to come back in future!
We had an awesome time. Curtis and Alex were incredible. Curtis is a great guide with an incredible voice. All the hands were polite and friendly. As I told Curtis, your horses appear to be very well taken care of. Thank you for a great time. We'll be back and bringing friends.
I had THE best time!! I'm coming back with another group soon!
Staff were super friendly. Beautiful views! One of our guides had a wealth of wonderful information on what we were seeing. Food was awsome. I highly recommend this little gem.
Mothers Day gift. Wife had an awesome time with good music to end the day. Thanks
the horses were amazingly calm and well mannered; easy ride for beginners; spectacular views of the city (and Hollywood sign); GREAT guides (fun, funny, informative and very professional); the BBQ dinner was awesome and delicious plus the musical accompaniment was a welcomed surprise and entertaining. Loved the "extra" animals: pig and mini horse and donkey.... (and the ranch puppies were cute too....)
It was so much fun. The views were amazing. I do wish our guide had a microphone. He had interesting trivia about the area but we couldn't hear him well
Great customer service! Amazing environment, great staff, horses are for all different levels of riders and food is amazing.
It was an awesome experience. I personally couldn't fulfill my desire to stay on the horse. My fear was sensed by the horse and my anxiety kicked in and it was over for me.
This is a unique way to see some of the amazing scenery Hollywood has. You don't need to be a great rider and you get to ride up close and personal with the cliff edge trails. The guides are great and keep everything in check and make sure you have a fantastic trek. Loved it!
