Los Angeles Horseback ridding was established in 1996. I booked an hour’s ride for my brother who is an experienced rider, my husband who has never ridden before and myself a confident rider, but not ridden in ten years.
We arrived at the ranch and were greeted by our guide. He was very nice and put my nervous husband at ease by making jokes. We did not have to wait long as all but one of our houses where saddled up and ready to go. The horses looked well kept and happy. The day before our ride it had rained and the horses that were not saddled up seamed to be really enjoying the mud. One was having great fun rolling in the mud and trotting around the pen he was in.
My horse was not overly friendly and a bit shy when I was waiting to mount her, however once I was on she was so well tempered. Her name was Tiffany and responded to all my commands with little to no hesitation. My husband was riding Jango who was really friendly and loved the attention and being fussed over before the ride. Jango was lively and also very well tempered. My husband told me that he liked riding him and he responded to all his commands with out hesitation. My brother was on a very big dark brown draft horse but sadly we have all forgotten his name. He was a quite powerful sole and my brother said he was a lovely to ride. It is lovely to see that this stable have very big draft horses because they are expensive to keep but rare to see at ridding schools.
My over all experience was a very good one. The owner was very polite, the guide was fun and knowledgeable, the horses were well spirited and pleasant to us. I would definitely go there again.
