Enjoy Spectacular Endurance Horses and Wonderful Trails at Running Horse Ranch Review by Jane D
Overall Holiday Experience

We spent 4 days at Running Horse Ranch last week and had a wonderful time. I have done Equitours nationally and internationally and none of those horses could compare to RHR's top-notch, proven endurance horses in terms of performance, reliability, safety and temperament. Plus, the RHR team is very friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable, and they take excellent care of their horses. I highly recommend this equestrian adventure for experienced, adventurous riders, whether you want to ride for one hour or one week! (Posted on 06/08/2018)

It is hard to describe what a wonderful experience it was to spend several hours with these horses. Daniela and her daughters have trained these amazing wild mustangs to be the most relaxed, responsive, and impressive horses we've ever had the pleasure to ride. Daniela will help you get to know your horse and for the horse to know you before you go, so that your ride is a bonding experience with the animal. The English saddles are amazingly comfortable for the rider and the horse. The trails are scenic and exciting. And the conversation with Daniela and her daughters along the way is such a pleasure. They know so much about the landscape and especially about how to communicate and interact with the horses. What an unexpected treat is was for me and my two teenagers. We will definitely be back!

Not your average trail ride. Much, much better. Review by Richard

I rode with Daniella a year and a half ago for a half day desert ride in Antelope Valley. It was very enjoyable. On that trip I also did a mountain ride in Goleta and another trail ride in Oro Grande. Daniella’s was the best and decided when I came back I was riding with her for my 3 available days to ride. It was a good decision as I rode with her for 3 days that were very enjoyable, riding an Arabian the first day and Mustang the next two. Unbelievable scenery from the mountain tops, feeling like you are on top of the world. Some challenging trails up and through the mountain, a good amount of trotting, and well-conditioned horses. You need not trailer your own horses out here to have a great riding experience. This is definitely tailored, as promoted for experienced riders, and you will not be bored. It’s been two weeks I’m back on Long Island, and can’t help but continue to reminisce about my rides, as well as keep watching my videos. Great memories and I look forward to going back and riding more trails with Daniella. Happy trails to you!

Fantastic Horse Ride Review by David

It’s all about love. Happy horses keep you safe! And they give you so much enjoyment.

Daniela and her daughter Ichella are great. Daniela is from Germany and they know their horses.

See tremendous love and passion and the horses when I talk to them. Well loved and taken care of horses are reflection of what they do to their horses. And it shows. This is not a nose to tail ride. This horses are astute and well mannered and still spirited which I appreciate.

Their riders and gas are their primary concern. They took time to walk us through with Tips and instructions and they let us practice with handling the horses in trading in the arena to make sure that we understand and are connected to the horses Emotionally. This makes all the difference. And it’s a sign of Daniella’s commitment and training under Perelli.

Our horses were a Mustang and it in Arabian. I know both are hot blooded and sometimes can be hard to handle, but we always wanted to ride these horses. Daniella has done an amazing job with these animals.

Surprisingly both were very calm and well mannered. It was such a pleasant ride.

The ride was on a terrific singletrack trail with steep up and down hills sections. Longer rides would’ve put us up on the ridge on the Pacific crest Trail.

Wow. I would recommend this to anyone who is experienced and wants a real ride. (via tripadvisor) (Posted on 06/08/2018)

This was everything we had hoped for when looking for a real riding experience in the LA area.
Challenging trail, lovely responsive horses, and beautiful scenery!
Daniella was a fantastic guide and went to great lengths to make sure we were happy and safe on our horses. This included letting us spend time getting accustomed to them in the sand arena before hitting the trail, which was perfect for my less experienced boyfriend.
We would definitely recommend Running Horse Ranch to anyone looking to do some 'proper' riding! We had an amazing time and will definitely be visiting again if we make it back to LA! (via TripAdvisor) (Posted on 19/10/2017)
