LA Horse Rentals offers guided trail rides throughout Griffith Park. As our bridle trails are also shared with hikers and dog walkers, all rides are mostly at a walk, with some trotting permitted at your guide's discretion. Horses and riders will be matched accordingly, taking into account the rider's size and experience. Be sure to use the restrooms before mounting your steed, dismounting out on trail is not permitted.
Arrive 15 min prior to your scheduled ride. No refunds for missed rides.
Oak Canyon 1 Hour Ride
Our 1 hour trail ride takes riders out around the Los Angeles Equestrian Center, over the LA River, and into Griffith Park using the Oak Canyon trail. A great trail to start with, once in the canyon the tree canopy provides shade on hot days, often leading to deer and other wildlife sightings.
Skyline Trail 1.5 Hour Ride
Our 1.5 hour trail ride uses the Skyline trail for extraordinary city views of the valley. Leaving the barn, riders will still get a glimpse of equestrian life as the path leads out to Griffith Park the same way as our 1 hour ride, but continues up above the tree covering revealing the picturesque Verdugo Mountains.
Amir's Garden 2 Hour Ride
Our 2 hour trail ride bypasses Oak Canyon and Skyline, continuing further up to Amir's Garden, an all-volunteer ornamental garden and rest stop for Griffith Park hikers amongst tall sycamores and verdant plants. Riders will look out over the Los Angeles Zoo, perhaps spotting an elephant or two in the distance.
Mt. Hollywood 3 Hour Ride
Our 3 hour trail takes riders even further up the mountain to the top of Mt. Hollywood. Clear days offer 360 degree views featuring Downtown Los Angeles, Griffith Observatory, the Pacific Ocean and the iconic Hollywood sign. This ride is offered Saturdays & Sundays.
Due to Covid restrictions this ride is currently unavailable.
