What should we wear?
Jeans or trousers and closed toe shoes are strongly recommended! Sneakers or boots with a small heel are best! No one will be turned away based on attire, but riding in shorts, flip-flops, high-heeled shoes and/or dresses/skirts is not recommended for comfort and safety.
Are helmets required?
Yes, you cannot ride without a helmet! We provide helmets free of charge. If you have your own riding helmet you are more than welcome to bring it! Bicycle helmets don’t make the cut.
What should we bring with us?
You can take a phone or small camera with you on the trail but not a bag. We can keep all loose items safe for you in our office while you ride. There is not much shade on the trail so you will most likely want to have sunscreen. We sell drinks such as water and Gatorade but do not have any snacks. Selfie sticks are not allowed.
Are there any rider restrictions in place?
Children must be 8 years old or older and adults must weigh under 240 lbs. These restrictions are due to our insurance policy and there are no exceptions. We also do not recommend horseback riding if you have had any recent surgeries, have any neck/back/hip/knee/foot injuries or if you are pregnant.
What are the trails like?
You are riding through Griffith Park and along the edge of steep hills the entire way. Part of what makes the park so beautiful is its mountainous terrain. The trails are wide, but the horses walk near the edge instinctively to keep an eye on their surroundings. We do not recommend a tour if you have a severe fear of heights.
Are your rides beginner friendly?
Absolutely! The horses walk at a relaxed pace, in a line. You will have one or more guides with you out on the trail. Your level of riding experience will not change the pace of the ride. Due to Griffith Park rules the horses cannot trot, canter or gallop.
