Sunshine And Daydreams Horseback Riding

About Us:

Sunshine and Daydreams is a local, private horseback riding stable created by Sonja Trefethen in 1990 as an alternative to traditional rent strings. There are two barns: one in Norco, Horsetown USA at the edge of the Hidden Valley Wildlife preserve, and another at Whittier Narrows in Whittier. Sunshine and Daydreams is renowned for it’s specialization in safety and instruction. The majority of Sunshine and Daydreams’ customers are beginners, many of whom have never ridden a horse before, although many advanced riders enjoy learning faster-paced transitions with instruction from the staff. Every rider is individually coached based on their knowledge and practice of correct horseback riding with the purpose of beginning or improving their horsemanship skills.

Safe and independent riding is at the core of Sunshine and Daydreams’ goal. We offer the truest trail-riding experience possible. While many other stables are nose-to-tail rides which ride in a line with no instruction, every Sunshine and Daydreams ride is guided by at least one of our experienced trail guides, and riders are instructed on how to ride side-by-side while being completely in control of the direction and speed of their horse. Experience is always taken into consideration. All riders are asked to respect the skills of their fellow group-members, and ride at the pace of the weakest rider in the group. All rides are private or semi-private so you can receive individual attention and can spend time with your friends and family.
