Entry into the petting zoo is $5 per person with weekly specials and discounts available!

Pony Rides

Pony rides are available daily from 10am to 5pm. Rides are $7 for five laps around the pony track. To ensure the safety of both rider and pony it is recommended riders be at least three years old and are subject to a 75lb weight limit.

Please note ride availability may vary due to extreme weather and the number of working ponies.

Riding Lessons

Riding lessons are available for ages 3-7. Each lesson will be a 45 minute one on one class with one of our instructors. Students will learn beginning riding and safety techniques as well how to lead, brush and saddle their horse.  

For the safety of the horses and riders, there is a 100lb weight limit for all students.

Lessons are $55, and include entrance into the petting zoo for the student and one parent.

Our kids trail ride will take children on a hand led trail ride along side the San Gabriel River Trail. Riders will get a tour of the back side of the Equestrian Center and Rynerson Park. Trail rides are approximately 25-30 minutes long. For the safety of the horses and riders, riders must be at least three years old and under 100lbs.
