This was great fun and offered the spectacular views, as promised on their website. The guides were knowledgeable and funny and they made beginners feel welcome and very comfortable. The food, especially the pulled pork, was great and the live music a treat. You may feel saddle sore the next day, but it's worth it!
We loved our 2 hour horseback ride through the Hollywood Hills. Definately one of the highlights of our trip. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The horses were beautiful and very experienced. By the time we got back to the ranch we were ready for the bbq. Entertainment was also laid on. Loved meeting the mini horse and the pig. The adorable donkey welcomed us back to the ranch. We took some carrots to feed to the horses afterwards and they enjoyed these. Fabulous experience.
Everyone was really awesome and welcoming! We had a really great time, from the views to the horseback riding to the good food and to top it off, live entertainment!! Thank you! :)
Guides were awesome and made sure that "nervous" guests were well looked after. Personnel were all friendly and helpful. BBQ food was delicious.
The ride was fun, a beautiful view, the staff was friendly and helpful. The food was great.
We had three good guides and everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable about the operation. I would have loved a better BBQ but overall I was very satisfied. I will be returning again.
My son was suffering with allergies and was not doing all that well When I told the girls they moved us to the front and got him some sun glasses and a bandana so he was protected from the dust. Although he still struggled through this made his experience a much better one. Was handled quickly and with the so professionalism The girls were also super friendly and very knowledgable. Highly recommend. Cheers
A group of 4 of us went on the evening ride and BBQ and the views from the ride were spectacular, the horses and guides were great and the BBQ was really delicious and much better than I expected. Would definitely recommend this tour!
My family and I were all different levels of riding experience. My daughters were novice riders. They chose horses that looked after my daughters and they made sure we were ok throughout . They took photos for us and messaged them over. Would highly recommend this tour.
The staff were all friendly and professional. I truly believed they had my safety in mind but also seemed to be concerned that we were having a good time. The ride was beautiful and the food was delicious.
This ride was magic !!! Thanks to the guides and the fabulous horses !!!
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.
