Horseback Riding Los Angeles

Horseback Riding Los Angeles Overview

Los Angeles

Horseback riding in Los Angeles includes Malibu, Griffith Park, Hollywood, horse trail riding, horse camp, horseback riding tours and more. Lose the hiking boots and cover more distance in less time than hiking. Generally, horse trail rides head for the most breathtaking lookout points and other points of interest that the region has to offer. Most of the horse trail riding in L.A. includes trips from one to two hours with helmets provided for rider safety. Although trail riding horses can be unpredictable, the horses are generally of calm temperament and disposition making them easy even for inexperienced children to ride. Below we've listed many of the horse stables in Los Angeles from Griffith Park to Palos Verdes.
