Sunset ride on the most beautiful, well mannered horse named Trigger, loved the area, Melissa was a great guide despite her being horseless. Unfortunately my friend was quite uncomfortable and uneasy on her horse so we had to cut our ride short so a bit of a financial loss since no partial refund but it is what it is. Beautiful... More

I simply can't recommend. I am confident that there are better options available in this horse friendly area. Do your research.

My wife and I went on a Trail Ride with Melissa on a Friday morning... I have to say this was an outstanding ride, Melissa was extremely nice and accommodating not to mention the horses we had the opportunity to meet... Trigger had such an awesome personality, if I could adopt this guy I would (in a heart beat)... And... More

I called Western Trail Rides today and inquired about arranging for a group of women (between 5 and 10 people) for a trail ride. The woman who answered my call informed me that she only takes one or two people at a time. However, on Western Trail Rides website they state, "Tell us how many are in your group (just... More

I took my boyfriend for his first horseback ride for our 3rd anniversary. Melissa was very patient and encouraging since I told her it was his first riding experience. She set us up with a gorgeous sunset ride, with the setting sunlight streaming through the tree branches and tall grasses swaying in the breeze. She walked in front of us... More

My boyfriend and I did a sunset ride with Melissa and I could not have been happier with the experience. Melissa is a real cow girl that loves her horses dearly! It's beautiful to watch her with her "boys." The trail is serene, relaxing and the horses are so calm. Melissa is a true professional with so much knowledge about... More

Absolutely beautiful experience. Ojai is a very special place and the trials from the ranch are blissful. I was on my honeymoon, first ever time in California and first time ever on a horse, thank you McGuninnes and thank you Melissa, you are an Earth Angel

My wife and I went horseback riding with WTR a few weeks ago while in Ojai for a wedding. Melissa was a terrific guide and paired us up with great horses for our trip. The trails we rode offered amazing views of the valley, and were remote in a way that made it feel like we were miles from civilization.... More
