We had a great time! The views were beautiful and everyone was so friendly. I would definitely recommend it!
This was an awesome experience! Staff was professional and helpful! Highly recommend this to anyone who is interested!
Disorganized start. On trail was good. BBQ great but needs space heaters this time of year.
Our guide was outstanding, views were amazing and the BBQ was delicious!
Had a great time on the ride, the guides were lovely ladies and made it more fun. The views were some of the best in the city! Would’ve preferred to have had he tour depart an hour earlier so as not to have to ride back in complete darkness and cold. Further, the BBQ dinner was fantastically delicious, but again the cold weather made the food cold too quickly too. I’d strongly encourage the owners to head to Costco and pick up 6 heating lamps for the outdoor dining pavilion to make the 45/50 degree temperatures more bearable for your guests.
Great people, awesome horses, and an amazing skyline at night! It was a nice addition to s great trip!
this was an awesome experience. we had great time.
Cassandra was great! Horses were easy to ride. Views were amazing. Only thing I would have changed is to have country music (as advertised) during dinner.
We galloped up the mountains to magnificent views. The knife like Mountain top trail edges were handled effortlessly by our faithful steeds. On return to the stable’s super sexy cowgirls served us fantastic BBQ and the beer flowed. All just a few min from Sunset Blvd. FUN!!!!
My Wife and I had such a wonderful time, everyone was so Pleasant and friendly! We will differently return... Thank you, Mario Rosado LA
What a great way to spend a couple of hrs. Views are brilliant. As a non horse rider I found myself amazed at how much I enjoyed myself. We had a 9,19,38,40 yr old group. All loved it
The Trail Leaders were wonderful, gave historical and interesting facts about Griffith Park and plants! We had a fantastic trip with beautiful views, healthy horses. A fun trip...I recommend it!
The guides were very friendly and super knowledgeable. Made us feel very welcome and safe! Would definitely come back.
These guys are incredible. So knowledgeable! They can easily pair you with a horse to suit your skill level. The ride was full of beautoful scenery and the bbq food was incredible!!! A real taste of southern style American cooking. Honestly my favourite experience of LA.
I had a great time!!! The horses were so sweet and the guides were AMAZING!!!
Breathtaking views, awesome guides, super service, a lot of fun!
Staff were friendly and accommodating. Couldn’t have asked for a better ride!
Wonderful, great guides, beautiful horses, exquisite scenery, truly a highlight of any trip to LA!
The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable not only about the horses, but about the history of Hollywood and LA as well. My horse was beautiful and looked very well taken care of. At the BBQ later in the evening, it was all you can eat and delicious food. They brought out other farm animals for us to enjoy during dinner as well.
Had a great trip and enjoyed the bbq dinner after - thanks again!!
Simply the best. And the guides are cute and also very funny.
The guides are very experienced with horses and knowledgeable of the area we rode in. The BBQ was such fun. We met many of the additional ranch animals. Top notch experience! Notch
We had 2 guides. One was great the other one not very attentive. When it was her turn to be in the back she never was. She always rode to the side of the middle of the group. My daughter was the last person and her horse was very slow which made her fall behind quite often which made her uncomfortable at times.
The guides were great and provided a lot of information on the tour. The view was spectacular. The food was good and provided a nice relaxing meal after the long ride through the mountains.
We were disappointed by the bbq but the ride was perfect. Thanks a lot for the experience.
Expected a bit more of a party atmosphere during the bbq dinner
This was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Friendly staff, beautiful horses and a ride we with views that will leave you speechless. If you have the opportunity to do the BBQ and live music after you qon't be disappointed!
Was overall a great experience...would recommend the ability to briefly stop somewhere halfway with a view to take breaks and a restroom break. Overall great
My kids and I did the horse back riding and bbq dinner. The staff and guides were great! We were running late and they waited for us so we could still do our ride. Dinner was catered in BBQ and was nice to eat after the ride. The horses are also very well taken care of. We would recommend Sunset Ranch.
One of the most beautiful experiences of my life! I highly recommend this outing to anyone! It is beautiful and unforgettable! Thank you to the friendly, professional staff for a great time and delicious dinner! :)
Good experience for beginners. Beautiful view. Good dinner.
Fun experience and great food
We had an awesome experience. The whole staff was excellent and they made us feel comfortable the whole time. We will definitely be back for another great time.
Sunset Ranch was recommended by a friend. It was everything and more. The staff was fantastic. Our guides were Cassandra and Katie. They were both very knowledgeable and friendly. The barbecue was delicious. I was so happy with the experience and look forward to going back.
It is definitely a lovely place to go for a ride and see the city from a hilltop. Our guides were exceptionally good and seriously talented with horses. Horses all seemed well taken care of and they were extremely gentle. I was surprised to see they didn't have any flushed toilets as they are right in the city. Even up in Nationally parks, you can find gravity flowed toilets that flush. But the outhouse served its purpose just fine.
