Gorgeous views all around, especially the sunset over the pacific.
I did not enjoy the food.
Loved the experience just thought there was a lack of direction for the post trek with the BBQ and didnt know if more was happening or not. Food was ok but expected a little more with the entertainment
The ride itself was fun! The barbecue was disappointing:( There was only one meat selection which is strange since it was a country setting barbecue. The other food was way under estimated!!! We had to have very small portions because the chef said there was ten more riders coming in and she was out of food. I felt before the barbecue that this meal was very over priced and then to not even have enough food was even more disappointing. Also not much selection. Desert was a small chocolate chip cookie. I'm sure the last ten riders were even more disappointed:(.
Had a great time. Loved my horse and the staff.
Great tour guides and the best bbq
I had a fantastic time the ride was fine the horses are great my horse was named Utah loved it how do you recommend people to come on this ride to the barbecue afterwards was great food was wonderful hope to see you guys soon
Best tour in LA
The staff were really friendly and caring and was interested in getting to know the clients ..by the way the bbq was amazing great food thankyou
It was our first time riding, horses were well trained the experience was great and the staff were all so nice. I would definitly come back here.
It would have been nice if the dinner was more organized. The food was ok but the layout was not that great and there were flies on some of it. Dessert was not good.
This was a wonderful experience. Great views and healthy strong horses. The only thing we wish was different, was that we could take water with us on the ride, and if helmets were optional. Other than that, it was nice.
Guides were very knowledgeable and Douglas is a great story teller. We have a dude ranch in Texas so it was fun to see how other places operate. Beautiful ride. Will come back.
A good time and great guides. Thanks!
I loved everything about it. I'm already planning on coming back this Friday with my kids. The only thing I was a little disappointed about was the"live" country music. To me, and many others, live means some type of band...not just music playing on a speaker. I still give my experience 5 stars because It was so much fun and Kelton was super fun!
Last riders have Lack of food at the end of the their trip
Thank you so much for a great ride! The guides were great and the views were spectacular! Would definitely recommend this ride to my friends and family!
The guides were excellent!! Made everyone feel at ease and kept everyone moving at a comfortable pace. The history of the park was an added bonus. Guides took great pictures of us too which was very nice. The food at the BBQ was very good. Live music at very end was nice, it would have been good to have more during dinner. This was an excellent experience and we will be back!
Ride was beautiful, excellent guide, delicious bbq and food, and very friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Great way to celebrate someone special's birthday.
Such lovely and accommodating staff. We had a blast. Lots of fun and laughter and singing with the live musician. He had a line of groupies by the end of the night. I wasn't too jealous though. I really wasn't. The food was decent. The whole setting was great. Was really well looked after and would recommend it to anyone who needs to know. Thanks so much. Tom
The staff were very knowledgable, helpful, and made the whole experience one to remember.
Horseback riding and staff were great. BBQ was ok. Too many flies and not the baba experience I expected
I found our experience at the Sunset Ranch to be very organized. The staff clearly knows their horses well, and they did a great job of moving through the 45 or so people to get us saddled up and on our ride in smaller groups of 15. I am glad that I read some reviews online before going because it provided tips on what to expect; horses walk close to the edge of the trail/cliff, and not to bring cameras, backpacks, etc. The ride was relaxing and had great views of some open land in southern California that you hardly knows exists right above Hollywood! The BBQ dinner was a fun way to end the ride and stay in the moment! Thank you for the fun experience!
Well kept horses! Great horse choices for different levels if riders. Great food.
The tour guides were very knowledgeable. Also, the guide who assigned us horses understood my skill level and gave me a horse that was my level of riding. The food was also very delicious.
Hello It was raining a lot but your team is excellent , i went alteady three years ago and i Will come-back when i will be back in LA in two or three years .. Mulderville.net
We did the 2hr ride with BBQ at the end. After a long day at the office, we found it to be very relaxing with a beautiful sunset. Would highly recommend.
We had a great time and the food was good. The horses were good, had energy, no bucking or biting. The trail ride was awesome. We will do this again, we enjoyed it that much.
We had a great time and enjoyed the ride. My wife is the activity director of a retirement facility and would like to know if their is a charge to bring her residents have lunch and be around the horse, they cannot ride. If there is a charge how much is it Thank you
We had fun!
Staff seemed knowledgable, but probably needed more staff & oversight for large groups. Felt like a lot of people riding for first time didn't know what they were doing let alone know what to do if their horse reacted negatively. Also the BBQ meal was very small meat portions.
