Had a lovely experience!!! So much fun!
It was a GREAT experience. I know this is not always the case when renting horses and then after having our own horses for a couple years didn't know how we would feel about going on a trail ride renting horses, but it couldn't have been better! The horses are well trained and obviously healthy, and our guide, Scott (aka Scooter) was FANTASTIC. Scott is the kind of guy that makes you feel like he really wants to get to know you. He was professional, handled the horses well and was a great host chatting and making everyone feel comfortable. The trail was great (Paramount) and the weather was beautiful. We will be back and I have already recommended you to several people in the area who asked where they could ride. We had to re-home our horses when we moved to California and a too short-lived dream and this is what my daughter wanted to do for her birthday since she hasn't ridden since then (2 1/2 years ago). She absolutely loved it and she got to ride her dream horse - Sultan. :)
We really enjoyed our time riding your horses . Ashley was a great guide and assisted us so well . She was so personable and experienced . We tipped her very well . I hope we get the pics she took of us on our horses . She promised to text them to us Terri from Camarillo
We had an excellent time. Look forward to doing it again. Our guide was fantastic. The horses were wonderful.
We had a great ride! This was our second time riding with you guys and we got Scott as our guide this time and he was so awesome! He is super knowledgeable and went out of his way to make it fun for everyone in the group! We were the only two on the ride our first time so we were a bit nervous that it wouldn't be as fun with other families, but we still had a blast and Scott even let us ride the same horses as last time! We will definitely be back and refer our friends! Thank you so much!!!!
Cowboy had some great jokes for the families and the trial ride was in a beautiful valley. Getting to hear some of the history of the local hills and cowboy survivial skills was fun.
This is the best horse back riding experience I have ever had. Taking the horses in the water was great. My son and my wife had a great time. Thank you.
The views were amazing and Scooter was such a great tour guide. He was knowledgeable and interactive with every person on the tour. The point where we got to go into the water with the horses put this ride at the #1 rating. My daughter has told everyone about it!! We will recommend this ride to any and all interested.
Scooter was great, very professional and knowledgeable. He handled the group very well. We'd definitely come back again.
The professionalism of the tour guides was top-notch and the trail was ideal for those of us with limited riding experience.
The girls were great and we loved the ride through the creeks plus the beautiful weather and scenery, whats not to love?!
Scooter was an amazing tour guide with much knowledge about the area as well as horses - he was very welcoming and friendly and took the time to get to know his group. Highly recommended!
We had our ride Saturday afternoon at 3 with Scott. He was absolutely great! He kept us well informed on safety and how to ride. He also was really interactive with all of the riders. I would definitley recommended him and Malibu riders .
Gillian was a really very nice guide!!! Thanks a lot for this memorable moment!!!
I enjoyed the creek a lot! The trial to get there sort of looked the same throughout the entire ride but other than that, it was a fun experience !
Perfect, beautiful, so much fun!
Our guide, Scooter, was terrific with my kids. We had a great time! We will be back. Thank you!!
I had a wonderful experience during the Paramount Ranch Group Ride. The horses were great, the trail was very scenic, and the guides were informative and easy-going. Opportunities for growth: It would be nice to notify riders that they will be met by the guides and horses on location. My group, as well as the other group, weren't sure if we were at the right spot as there isn't an actual structure there dedicated to Malibu Riders. Also, while our guides were awesome, I do feel as though Lindsey could use some brushing up on her customer service skills; she's a bit abrasive. Overall, I had an excellent time! I would definitely recommend, and look forward to riding again with Malibu Riders in the future.
It was all about our guide Scott. He went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and was very knowledgeable about the area. He was a pleasure to have as a guide and when we return we will accept no other guide but Scott.
The ride was excellent. The horses were terrific and well behaved. Lindsey was a great guide and fun to be with. We all enjoyed the ride immensely.
Beautiful scenery, well behaved horses, awesome guide at an acceptable fee.
Our trail lead, Lindsey was awesome. She took amazing care of the 5 little girls in her care and made my daughters 7th birthday a huge success!
First time riders and we couldn’t have had a better instructor than Ashley along with balikey and Bliss the beautiful horses. A truly remarkable hour complete with deer sightings to boot .. awesome we will be back
it was amazing and our guide was super sweet and helpful - the horses were just perfect !
We had a great guide and the trail was beautiful. The hoses were very good as well
Fun ride where there was a good deal of easy going instruction in proper riding technique and riding styles. Luke and I were in a "group ride" however the rest of the group did not show up so it ended up with just us two and the instructor. Lovely morning at Paramount Ranch.
The ride was very enjoyable. Our guide leader was very helpful and knowledgeable about the horses and the property. The horses were very well trained and it was a nice experience!
The guide is very professional and kind. I really enjoy the tour.
Your staff, the locations, the horses all are delightful, It's going to be our new ritual going forward. Expect to see us often, Zoe Maisy @ 11yrs has a passion for Horses. PLUR from the Warren Posse
Good horse, good guide, nice day.

Our guide Sarah was more than we could have asked for. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and entertaining. We have already begun recommending Malibu Riders especially with her as the guide.
Scooter, the absolute Best, he made the trip Memorable, We really appreciated him, please tell him Tim and his group say hello.
