Sunshine and Daydreams Horseback Riding

Sunshine and Daydreams is a local, private horseback riding stable created by Sonja Trefethen in 1990 as an alternative to traditional rent strings. Our barn is located in Norco, Horsetown USA at the edge of the Hidden Valley Wildlife preserve.

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. 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.

Sunshine and Daydreams has a very conservative riding policy. This ensures the safety of our riders and the well-being of our horses. We respect the skills of all experienced riders but ask that everyone follow the instruction from our guides as our horses have been trained in a specific manner and deviation from our policy can confuse and stress the horses.

Prepare To Have A Great Time With S&D Horseback Riding!

First Time!

"Our instructor was very kind and knowledgeable about her experience with horses. The first 5 mins. were rules on riding the horse, then we headed toward the trails where we saw beautiful views. I recommended it, and would definitely come again in the future."

Great Guides & Horses!

"It was such a beautiful ride with our fantastic guide, Johnathon. We loved that it was just my husband and I on the horseback riding adventure. After a short ride in town (Horse Town USA), we were guided down into the Santa Anna River Valley on a most beautiful day."

Relaxing Ride!

"I try to go once a month just for some "me time". This time, I took my 12 year old son with me. Tony was our guide and he is the best. We had an amazing time as always. I love the small groups and how it’s only about 5 riders in a group so make sure you make reservations."
