Lindsey was terrific and got all 8 of us going by our 1 pm departure time despite all the pre-scheduling changes and a large group. It was a beautiful ride and Lindsey explained some of the history of the area too, which was informative. She also cared about each rider and how their horse was doing. It was also so much fun going into the creek with the horses and doing some trotting. We thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of the landscape and Lindsey's knowledge along with her effervescent personality :-) Thanks again for being able to fit us into the scheduling despite impending rain and lack of trail guides! We really appreciated that. Cheers! Caron & EvanRae
It was an amazing experience for me and my husband, who has little experience with horses but we both enjoyed the Paramount Trail Ride very much. Great guide and sweet horses that are well taken care of.
Great trail guide (Sarah) and great day!!!
Mike was great! I really enjoyed my time.
Sarah Was a great guide tour
Celebrated my daughter’s 10th Birthday with a trail ride for her six friends along with her mother and I (8 total). I had looked around and was mpresssd with seeing the Malibu Riders operations along with all of the positive reviews. Scott was our guide for the day and couldn’t have been more gracious, accommodating and entertaining. He fitted the girls properly with riding helmets, sized the saddles accordingly and gave a very clear safety brief regarding the horses and what to expect. Most of the girls were not familiar with horses and this was going to be their first real adventure out on the open trail. All of the horses were extremely calm and went at a very slow, comfortable pace that maximized their fun and bolstered their confidence. The ride itself was incredible with beautiful scenery 360 along well worn paths. Scott was energetic throughout and really made my daughter feel special on her big day. Scott was even gracious enough to bring us to a large open meadow and arrange the horses and riders together for a memorable group photo. It was an awesome way to capture a special moment in our little girl’s life. Any one looking for a fun experience for friends, family or a small party consider spending a little time up in the saddle with Malibu Riders.
This is the second time I went horseback riding with Lindsey. Such a great trail and fun ride! I look forward to a third time! Janice Buneo
Beautiful area, relaxing ride, pleasant guide and a perfect day. My horse was cooperative. My husband's horse wanted to eat every chance it could get. My son had a fun time and even got his horse running a couple of times and wanted to run more. It was a fun birthday excursion for our birthdays.
Loved every minute- wonderful horse and guide. Could not be any happier!

Our instructor was so amazing! The horses were so beauftil and so was the trail. Every aspect of this experience was great!
Loved it! Gillian was an awesome guide and helped calm one of the children who was slightly afraid of being on a horse. She was very informative and entertaining and worked to match the horses temperaments with the riders experience. Beautiful scenery!

The horses were great (looked good and were energetic but well trained). We could trot and canter as we wanted. The trails were good. The guide ( Ashley) was very pleasant and accommodating.
