  • No bags (including purses), packs or unsecured sweaters, sweatshirts or hats, sunglasses and heavy jewelry can go up on the trail, so it's best to leave those at home or in the car. We'll try to accommodate water bottles if they fit in the guide's saddlebag.

  • Cell phones and cameras are only allowed at the ranch, not on trails! Your trail guide will be happy to take a picture of you and your companion (s) while you are mounted on your horses,  BEFORE or AFTER YOUR RIDE.

  • All rides are by phone reservation (818-591-2032) only - so be sure to call and book ahead! Same day reservations are possible, however it always helps to have notice, so we suggest that you book about three or so days in advance.

  • In summer we only book mornings and late afternoon/evenings, so the weekend schedule gets really full.
     
  • We are not responsible for traffic conditions and advise everyone with a scheduled ride to check for local road conditions! Los Angeles is notorious for crazy traffic.
     
  • Please be sure anyone riding with you is aware of our policies including dress code, etc.

  • WHEN YOU ARRIVE TO OUR PROPERTY
    It would be greatly appreciated if noise is kept to a minimum..we love our neighbors and it is an extremely quiet mountain top where echo carries voices far. Children should be supervised at all times and not be allowed to run anywhere on the property or parking areas.
