Up to 3 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

The first thing you'll do when you arrive at Twenty nine Oaks Ranch is help to saddle and groom your mount. Horses work on relationship, so its important that you get to know each other and bond because you'll be spending several hours together. We'll head off onto the trail for the 11 mile trek through oak forests, dry river beds and wide prairie. The Baleen Wall is our destination, a rock formation visible due to a very ancient land slide that exposed the underlying rock in the shape of a whale. We'll have a picnic lunch which we provide, and let the horses rest, then head back to the barn by a loop trail. You'll have time to take pictures and perhaps to search for some rock samples. The entire round trip with lunch will be between 3 and 4 hours. On the way back, if time permits, we'll pass by Sulphur Springs and the Sheep Meadow to explore the rolling riparian land at the north end of this trail. We will begin at 9AM to avoid the heat, but this event can be arranged earlier or later as needed. Please message me about any special times or dates and we will be happy to accommodate you whenever possible.

Since 1999 I've owned a ranch in a secluded canyon north of Los Angeles where I keep a small herd of horses, sheep, goats, chickens, a dog and a couple of cats that I would love to share with you. I began riding as a little girl and it has been my passion ever since. I ride in the Santa Monica Mountains and enjoy the landscape, the wild life and the geography of the great outdoors. I could't live without it!

Loved the beautiful ride in the county side, very quite and serine. “Wyatt” Lynn’s son was a true cowboy very knowledgeable regarding all the horses, extremely pleasant and a joy to be with on the trail. It was a cold day and after riding we went back to the house. Lynn was an extremely gracious host and had a Picnic lunch by the fire with a glass of wine. We sat telling stories of our travels and experiences. I will rate this a A+ day!
