Pat Murnane’s Wagon Wheel Ranch is truly a ton of fun! This is the only trail ride operation I’ve ever been on that will let you ride faster than a slow trot if you do know how to ride. The horses are all really pretty quiet and well cared for, but not “slugs”. Pat has some half draft horses that can carry people over 200 pounds, which is great since many places have that as a weight limit. You can take 1 hour or 2 hour rides. He does birthday parties too! He has a number of horses that are great for little kids. My daughter is a trail guide during the summers, so if you see her, say “Hi!” to McKenna.
Pat has a soft heart and frequently takes autistic or other mentally challenged people out for a ride as well, and he donates significantly to local groups such as the Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Las Amigas De Las Lomas, etc., so I like to make sure everyone knows what good things he does for the local community.
Pat’s trail rides currently meet at the entrance to PV Stables on Via Opata in Palos Verdes Estates.
