We have been to many horse rental stables in Southern California and listed below are a few of our favorites. Most will make you sign a waver releasing them from any lawsuits. Just don’t forget to get a receipt prior to horse back riding. Many stables are having children under 16 years of age wear a helmet which is probably safer.

Coyote Ridge Stables
Coyote Ridge Stable is located just 20 minutes north of Palm Springs, California. Our guided trail rides take you through the canyons of Morongo Valley, with beautiful views of the San Gorgonio mountains and Mt. San Jacinto. At 3200 ft. elevation our mountainous terrain offers abundant wildlife and plant species. Experience magnificent golden eagles, red tailed hawks, and kestrels soaring high above, or perhaps see coyote pups at play, and listen to covies of Gambel’s quail chirping under the cover of creosote bushes.
All of our rides are accompanied by a guide to ensure the safety of our guests and horses.
Coyote Ridge Stable has been in business for over 15 years. Owned and operated by Sue Lund and Sally Ellis, who along with several of the horses volunteer their time with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Mounted Search and Rescue. Sally has a Master’s degree in Education and teaches full time, but spends her weekends horsing around. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Sue, a biology major, enthusiastically shares her extensive knowledge of Mojave desert flora and fauna with riders as their trail guide. Most of our horses are Search and Rescue certified and are available by request for trail rides. We believe that horses and people can have a safe and enjoyable time together.

Perhaps you’ve dreamed of crossing the wild prairie by horseback on the Oregon Trail… or joining the cowboys on a cattle drive… or even exploring the Old West with John Wayne, Roy Rogers, and Gene Autry – but all these pale in comparison to rambling along on a Western Trails trail ride! So let’s saddle up and go for a ride!
Winter, spring, summer or fall–it’s always a great time to go horseback riding. In the summer, we only ride in the cool of the mornings and evenings. Don’t wait for vacation time.
