Guides lead groups along a 2-mile trail through Will Rogers State Historic Park. While horses navigate the mountain path, riders enjoy panoramic views of the Los Angeles Basin and Pacific Ocean. Each private trail ride includes a 30-minute break atop Inspiration Point, where participants can take in the sights and eat any snacks they bring along. Sunset private rides are available and typically the last trips of the day, starting at 5 p.m. Riders must wear long pants, closed-toe shoes, and provided helmets.
Westside Riding School
As owner and wrangler-in-chief at Westside Riding School, Dorte Lindegaard guides horseback expeditions and riding lessons across 180 acres of panorama-filled paths in Will Rogers State Historic Park. Trail rides depart from Jimmy's Barn and plod up mountain trails in pursuit of Inspiration Point, where riders experience spectacular views of the Los Angeles basin, the Pacific Ocean, and Catalina Island. Upon finishing the 2-mile trek and nailing their dismount, riders can visit the Will Rogers ranch house, where the celebrated humorist, actor, and horse whisperer lived with his family and talked shop with Kentucky Derby winners over gourmet oats and champagne troughs.
