Welcome to Running Horse Ranch…

Trail Rides for Advanced/ Intermediate Horse Back Riders, Los Angeles, California, USA

Guest Ranch in Los Angeles

Running Horse Ranch is located out in a peaceful, remote, mountainous wilderness, away from the wild hustle and bustle of LA. We are only a little bit more than one hour away from world famous Hollywood.

Adventurous, advanced, and intermediate horse riders from all around the world, enjoy spectacular riding trails, through a rugged wild, west country side and a lovely desert around the greater Los Angeles Area, on our surefooted Mustangs and Arabian horses.

Our ranch is family operated, and what makes our rides very special, we only cater to one party at a time! We only mix rider's if we truly know each party, and that they can really ride.

Each of our horses are members of our family, they are loved and enjoy a natural, holistic life style at our ranch.

5 of 5 stars

Had a fun time riding up steep inclines, narrow switchbacks and mountain ranges. Scenery is breathtakingly beautiful and varies from desert scrub to big treed forests with their dappled understory.. Horses surefooted and well trained. This place is Zen for riders looking to unwind and reconnect with the natural world. This is not your Grandpa's "trail ride".

“Enjoy Spectacular Endurance Horses and Wonderful Trails at Running Horse Ranch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

We spent 4 days at Running Horse Ranch last week and had a wonderful time. I have done Equitours nationally and internationally and none of those horses could compare to RHR's top-notch, proven endurance horses in terms of performance, reliability, safety and temperament. Plus, the RHR team is very friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable, and they take excellent care of their horses. I highly recommend this equestrian adventure for experienced, adventurous riders, whether you want to ride for one hour or one week!
