Alabama Hills Horseback Rides

In all seasons the Alabama Hills offer captivating scenery. From fall movie history, winter's sweeping vistas and snow capped Sierra backdrops to spring wildflower shows - you can see it all riding Horseback through the Hills.

The Alabama Hills offer plenty of fascinating movie history that is best seen the same way your cowboy heroes saw it, by horseback! Ride where Gene, Hoppy, Roy and the Lone Ranger chased the bad guys through the rocks. See where John Wayne made his last film appearance, where 'How the West Was Won' captured the grand landscapes of the west or where Hopalong Cassidy hid from a band of renegades!

Enjoy the movie history backed by stunning Sierra views and incredible rock formations that inspire and intrigue. Guides share their knowledge of the area such as , knowledge of wildflowers, movie locations, local legends or history!

Our livestock is well cared for, pleasant and safe. We provide the guide and horses.  Also, for those who request, we provide one our locally famous surefooted mules, known for their unique personalities, hardiness, and smooth travel.

I've heard about the Alabama Hills near Lone Pine and thought it would be interesting to explore by horseback the place where so many old western movies were filmed. After visiting this site, I'm definitely putting it on my to do list!

Any horseback rides through the western movie sites during the weekend of the Lone Pine Film Festival this October? I'd love to ride in the Hills. I am a decent rider in the past-beginner level. , 6/14/2017
