  • The arrival from Encino to the ranch by car led through a landscape worth experiencing. Finally we reached our idyllic ally destination and our adorable hostess Daniela immediately conveyed the feeling: Welcome! Of course, it also helped that she speaks German with a Berlin accent. She introduced me to the little Mustang I was supposed to ride, and I quickly realized that a real horse-drawn woman founded this farm and runs it with love and passion. (I say this as someone with sixty years of riding and horse experience.) Our several-hour ride in the crotch and trot: Here I sit on an incredibly tread-proof horse, to which one does not have to give any help, in the ups and downs of the terrain. Those who sit balanced on such a horse have enough to do with dodging bushes and branches so as not to lose their glasses. We met many hikers, solo or in pairs, on this world-famous hiking route. My conclusion: Absolutely recommended! PS: The rooms of the farm: Cosy! My wife, son, daughter-in-law and 11-year-old grandson had two wonderful days that were more than filled with firemaking, petting animals and reading.

  • Great place to stop by for horseback riding and Atv rides, great people running the ranch, our whole group enjoyed immensely!  more »
  • Running Horse Ranch is an outstanding operation. Daniela’s horses are beautifully trained, responsive, and a joy to ride. I went on a three hour ride up to Burnt Peak, and had an amazing time. Great variety on the trail. Wide open vistas, long trots, and fun ascents and descents on twisty narrow trails. I’ve gone on horseback riding trips around the world, and the quality of the horses and the gorgeous trails and views are certainly worth traveling halfway around the world for. I’m fortunate that the ranch is only about an hour away. I’ll definitely be back!
  • I had the best riding experience with Daniela through the desert, her horses were so well cared for and trained and the trail was absolutely stunning. The accommodation and ranch itself was great I absolutely loved it. This is an amazing experience for riders that enjoy overseas riding treks thank you again for having me Daniela, I will be sure to come back for another ride when in LA again!!
