Our pony rides are an excellent way to safely introduce younger riders to horses and horseback riding. An experienced guide will lead the horse on an individual 20 minute trail ride. You will be allowed to walk on foot next to your child (called side walking). The pace of the trail ride will be dictated by the confidence level of your child, therefore ride times are approximate.
You will be paired with one of our reliable and friendly horses and taken by an experienced guide on a ride along the scenic trails of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. No previous riding experience is necessary. We can schedule groups of up to 10 riders at a time. For larger groups please contact us to learn about how we can accomodate you. PVE residents must show proof of residency to receive the discount.
Minimum age to go on a trail ride is 6 years old.
Younger riders will ride on their own horse with a lead line that will be held by the guide.
Minimum age to ride off the lead line is 8 years old.
Maximum rider weight allowed is 250 lbs.
We do not allow pregnant women to ride.
All riders under the age of 18 must wear helmets, which are provided at no additional cost.
If you would like to bring your own helmet, that is acceptable.
We recommend wearing long pants and boots/closed toe shoes.
