Before its status as a haven for filmmakers and Hollywood’s Golden Era-elite, Palm Springs was very much a Western desert town where ranching and agriculture were the primary outlets for work and for fun. Relive some of that Wild West glory for yourself with a day at Smoke Tree Stables, Palm Springs’ most renowned horse stable since 1927. Learn more about why you should visit Smoke Tree Stables down below!
Smoke Tree Stables in Palm Springs functions as a horse boarding facility, an equine therapy clinic, and a horseback riding experience provider, offering visitors the chance to go on adventurous trail rides, spend time with horses in a therapeutic environment, or even to board their horses.
Smoke Tree Stables is family-owned and operated and has the distinction of having provided horses for film and television networks, including Oprah, Bravo, Playboy TV, and prime time television. Their stables are located in Palm Springs near the famous Indian Canyons, nestled along a trail network that spans over one hundred and fifty miles of riding trails.
Trail rides are offered on an hourly and daily basis, with options for groups as well. One-hour trail rides are priced at $60.00 per person and depart from the stables every hour from 8:00am to 2:00pm daily, weather permitting. This trail ride takes riders along the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains.
The Murray Canyon Haul Ride costs $120.00 per person and leaves at 9:00am, 11:00am, and 1:00pm daily. Other times are available by appointment. During this trail ride, riders traverse the Indian Canyons, from Andreas Canyon to Murray Canyon and back, passing by towering palm trees and trickling streams along the way.
Private guided trail rides are available for $50.00 per guide, plus fees. Alternatively, group rides are also available with a reservation.

Their stables are even open during all holidays, making them an excellent choice for a scenic horseback ride during the holiday season.
