Palos Verdes Stables Offers Boarding and Trail Rides!
Palos Verdes Stables, in Palos Verde Estates, was built in the early 1920’s before Palos Verdes Estates became a city. There was a time when children could ride bareback from the stables down to Malaga Cove Plaza to visit, at that time, Moore’s Market, and could even ride down to Torrance Beach. Today, riding is limited to several specific trails and there are three arenas where riders can practice their skills.
Palos Verdes Stables offer a huge variety of programs for local residents to enjoy. There is a multi-tiered lesson program starting with beginner ponies to advanced horses. Depending on the type of riding that you are interested in, they have professional trainers for both private and group lessons. There is also a tot program which introduces young children to both horse riding and how to care for them. Lessons range from 1/2 hour for beginners to hour long group rides for the more advanced riders.
If you are just looking for a relaxing trail ride this is also the place. You can take an hour long trail ride through the canyons for $50/hour. You must call for reservations and the ride is available for all ages.
Palos Verdes Stables currently charges between $540-$600/month for boarding. (This includes feed and stable care). Palos Verdes residents are given priority when the stalls become available. The stables are located at 4057 Via Opata, Palos Verdes Estates. The phone number is (310) 378-3527.
