The path taken: Trails around Altadena

Adjacent to Angeles Forest, Altadena Stables gives access to trails heading north to Mount Wilson, and all the way south to South Pasadena. Actually, you could probably go beyond Mount Wilson and make your way through the Cascade trails; maybe you can find a boarder who has tried it. But that which is in our own backyard, and a few miles up and down -- well, the sights and sounds are unforgetable.


Whether it's show or trail, English or Western, beginner or advanced, we have two highly respected trainers on board who can help you achieve your riding goals Group and private lessons available, children and adults. Let's talk. 626-797-2012.


We offer spacious, clean stalls, top-quality oat and alfalfa hay, large lighted rings, electric hotwalker, miles and miles of breathtaking trails, and best of all, a safe and congenial homebase for all your equestrian pursuits. Give us a call for more information: 626-797-2012.
