Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks

Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks

Unique Geological Features

Geologists who studied the Irvine Ranch for the Natural Landmark designation identified many unique and rare features - including fossils of hadrosaurian, or "duckbilled," dinosaurs. The land is an outstanding illustration of the complicated and unique geologic history of the southwestern continental margin of North America.

OC Parks - Equestrian Rides

Equestrian                        equestrian horses

Take a leisurely equestrian ride through beautiful Limestone Canyon, home of oak woodlands, grasslands, and coastal sage scrub.  View evidence of the old ranch days when cattle once roamed the area, and see some of the wild flowers that are native to our area.  You will also see The Sinks, a sandstone formation which is sometimes called the “Grand Canyon of Orange County.”

Riders should have trail riding experience and a fit and able horse.  They must have the ability to transport their horse to the staging area.

Reviewing the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-3 activity on the land.

 Please visit the OC Parks website to see their calendar and announcements.

Brave Grace

Working with a horse invites you into deeper understanding of yourself. Horses provide the unique opportunity for us to see ourselves as we truly are.  They can only be honest, and they see our truth sometimes before we do.  Yet they hold this mirror up to us without judgment, creating space for us to try a new way of being.   This kind of authenticity can be intimidating and refereshing at the same time, they are living breathing biofeedback machines.  They bring immediate credibility, so  insights we have about ourselves in their presence create positive changes towards self-awareness, self-esteem and self-efficacy. Horses live in the present and challenge us to do the same. They do not regret the past or worry about the future.  They respond to who we are in the moment, always in a way that teaches us something about ourselves and how we can grow. 

Are you ready to be a student of the horse?
