Experienced riders! Trail is fairly easy to handle.

First day- ride our adventurous, fun, nature trail labyrinth on the ranch!

Your guide will give you a riding presentation, before you meet your horse! You’ll find plenty of time- to bond with your mount in a arena, so you feel safe out on our challenging trails!

Afterwards we go out on the rugged, vast ranch trails. Riding will be a mixture of walking, trotting, maybe a canter. Head down the winding trails through an idyllic oak covered forest, climb mountains up to follow the spine of turtle mountain- up and down, ride switchbacks, ditches and dry river beds.

The mountainous scenery, in the beautiful evening sun is usually shining.

After your beautiful evening ride, relax in your swinging chair, wrapped up in a cozy blanket- maybe while enjoing a glass of wine!

Next morning, we heading out for the Half Day Ride to Burnt Peak.

Horses will be already saddled up and ready to go.

We begin with a long incline, including some few really steep grades, up this mountain!

After this 1250 feet elevation climb we rest for a moment up on the incredible scenic ridge to view the Antelope Desert.

Soon we enter the trail head of the famous Pacific Crest Trail. The next four miles offers you a challenging opportunity for some long trotting sequences. We will trot if we can, but walk if we must.

 

Arrived in Burnt Peak Junction, we allow the horses to graze for a moment, and take a brake, while enjoying a scenic view, over to Los Angeles, across hundreds of mountain ridges. A safe descend will be on a fire road. The horse trailer is parked at Bushnell Summit.
