Connemara Ranch, featured by the New York Times, is perched amid breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the Malibu countryside, beckoning visitors to its pristine grounds for both the expected—trail rides and lessons—and the unexpected—equine-therapy sessions. Founder Talley Hutcherson taps into her extensive background in equine therapy to lead groups and individuals through programs that address trauma, addictions, and self-esteem as the clients learn about riding and bond with their horses. Talley harnesses the gentle nature of horses to build confidence and communication skills in her students, encouraging participants to commune with their equine companions through learned horsemanship techniques.
Beyond connecting with her community, her ranch has been graced by the likes of celebrities including Brad Pitt, Billy Crystal, Cindy Crawford, and Mr. Ed’s great-great-grandson.
