I'm a lifelong horseback rider and an equine veterinarian; I thought Garrod Farms did a good job with your run-of-the-mill trail ride. The horses seemed well-cared for (keep in mind, I do this for a living) and were generally very well-behaved. I have been riding since childhood and my boyfriend has ridden for years, though not recently. We both had... More

Wow! Super time riding great horses in dramatic park setting. Stacy does the best guided tour you could ever hope to have. The mountain views are awesome.

A large number of stables are there with horses of various types.Some were undergoing treatment I think. The names of the horses were displayed and there were two riding areas

My fiance surprised me with a trip to Garrod Farms and the whole experience was beyond superb. I've ridden horses all my life and been on a lot of less than good trail rides, but Garrod Farms absolutely knows what they're doing! Our guide was a friendly and knowledgable young woman who we instantly connected with and she did a... More

What I was looking for and what I found......wow!! Looking for a place to take the grandkids on a pony ride. Wound up finding a place for our entire family to come back, have a picnic, nice glass of wine and/or do some wine tasting, take the kids for a pony or horse ride, relax or walk the property and...

5-star because it is first time and great fun. The old couple who received our fee seemed to have no expression on their face and talked slow. That is ok. Pros: - $90 for two for 1 hour horse riding - same price for early bird at 8:30am for 1.5 hour ride - friendly and energetic guide - if you... More

We went on a Monday, and got a private trail ride because there were no crowds. Weekends are busy! My son has no riding experience at all, and I am an intermediate rider. They did a great job of pairing us with the proper horses, and our guide was friendly and knowledgeable about the open space preserve we rode in.... More

We had a wonderful trail ride as part of a birthday adventure for a 15 year old boy who likes to do "firsts" on his birthdays. He was visiting us in California with his family for the first time and decided that it was time to try riding a horse too. We had 3 adults who had ridden before and... More

I've been riding here for about five years an I can safely say this is a great place for anyone to visit. The horses owned by Garrods range from easy trail horses and adorable kids' ponies to more advanced lesson horses. This location is easy to find and parking is always available. The trails are wide and range from flat... More
