Owner description: A western horse back trail experience in the beautiful Ojai Valley. Come explore the natural forest and meadows in a preserved state, as it was hundreds of years ago. An outing that everyone should see and that will never be forgotten.

My boyfriend suprised me by taking me horseback riding for my birthday! I had never been before and he had only been a few times. The own was so sweet and great at giving direction. She gave him the newbe horse and me the more experienced horse. It was great fun. I picked up on how to ride pretty quickly and my horse was friendly and easy going. She even gave me a little running jump at the end of the trail ! And my boyfriend found a new strength.

If you have allergies remember to take a Claritin!

Fantastic, scenic, relaxing ride with a true cowgirl and horse lover! The horses are beautiful, the surroundings gorgeous and Melissa is a delight.

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. Melissa knows a lot about the ecology of the area and had great stories to tell. We'd highly recommend Western Trail Rides, and will definitely come back the next time we're in Ojai.

I have made it a rule that when I go to Ojai I stop by the wonderful little ranch called Western Trail Rides. Couple of things: my Uncle Jim and cousin Kathy had an excellent day riding and it reminded him of his childhood in South Dakota. About the Lord: God is a daily part of my life, and I appreciate the little reminders about faith there. It is a meditative and quiet place to enjoy horses, riding and education about how to ride.
