Morongo Valley is a small community located in the upper desert of the San Bernardino Mountains, 16 miles from Palm Springs and 18 miles from the Joshia tree park We are right in the middle. All our rides are right off the ranch with miles of trails.

Our beautiful trail rides will take you through the Canyons of Morongo Valley and give you a chance to gaze upon the gorgeous views of the San Gorgonio Mountains and Mt. San Jacinto.

When you return from your ride and take your horse back to the stables you can relax in our picnic area with a fresh drink and enjoy the atmosphere that the ranch has to offer.

Welcome to CottonWood Canyon Ranch

Morongo Valley, being about ten degrees cooler than the lower desert floor, is a perfect environment for trail riding.  Morongo offers an abundance of desert wildlife and native plant species for our guests to enjoy.  CottonWood Canyon Ranch is just minutes to Joshua Tree Park and Palm Springs, making us a very convenient location.

What to Expect

First and foremost your safety comes first. All of our rides are private and matched to your ability.  We do not put you in groups with people you don’t know.  Whether it’s one person or ten, you will be riding with experienced wranglers that will give you a ride perfect for your comfort level.

If you’re everyone in your party is experienced enough, you are welcome to trot, canter, or gallop.  However, if you have any inexperienced riders we must go at a speed that they are comfortable with.

The horses here are not ordinary stable horses.  Trained for search and rescue, they are my privately owned horses with ages ranging from 4 to 34.  My husband and I have been volunteers for the Morongo Basin Search and Rescue for over 12 years. He was the commander for 5 years and for the last 4 years has been the search and rescue director for all of San Bernardino county 22 teams.




We had such a great time on our ride! They were so knowledgeable of the area and obviously take great care of their horses and grounds. We will definitely be back! Jorja, I am serious about wanting to talk to you about volunteering once I am moved out there!

Satisfied Rider
I love going on rides with Jorja. I have been on many rides with her and its always something new and fun. The trails are beautiful. Jorja’s horses are very beautiful and sweet animals that love their jobs. They are alot of fun to ride. Can’t wait to go out again soon, I’m very much looking forward to it. Thanks for the great time Jorja.
Happy Rider

I recently went on a beautiful trail ride with Jorja and Kate and two friends. The experience was unforgettable and the sights unbelievable. It had been a long time since I had been up on a horse and I felt comfortable and calm during the entire ride. Jorja is really doing something great for her horses, who are all impeccably cared for and well trained for all levels of riders. The next time I return to Morongo Valley I will be riding with her again and hope to make a donation for her rescue horses as well!
