Owner and operator Diana Lefort set out to establish a unique way for everyone to experience the beauty of Temecula Valley’s Wine Country. The result was Wine Country Trails by Horseback.  Diana is a local resident whose passion and more than 3 decades of experience with horses provides a safe, relaxing and memorable experience to all riders. The rides are conducted with the highest level of professionalism and service with experienced and knowledgeable guides that work hard to exceed your expectations.

But that's not the whole story...

Over the years there has been a dramatic increase in the number of horses abused by their owners. These horses are often abandoned or just turned loose to fend for themselves, usually resulting in starvation and loss of life.  Through the assistance of a local veterinarian, Diana has rehabilitated more than 50 horses.  Living comfortably on a 20 acre ranch in Temecula Valley, these lovely horses get the treatment and care that they deserve while happily fulfilling a purpose once again. 

Through your patronage and support we can continue to take in more of these amazing animals.  All proceeds are used for feed, medical care, and farrier services. Through natural horsemanship training we can recondition, rehabilitate and retrain these horses to live a healthy and productive life.  Our experienced trainers evaluate each and every horse and condition them for touring guests through the vineyards.  Every rescue horse will not fit this program.  Those that do not are released to carefully selected owners after completing a rigorous interview process. 

Your support is truly appreciated!  Please continue to visit us on a regular basis and share your experience with your friends, family and co-workers!

“Outstanding! What a wonderful experience!”
[5 of 5 stars] Reviewed January 23, 2015

We were VERY PLEASED with our experience. The staff (Diana and Jenny especially) were very friendly and helped us to feel at ease. The horses looked great and well cared for. We were fortunate to be there on a beautiful day (January 23, 2014), the weather, perfect; the sky, a true blue; the wine country, plush green; the horses, well trained; Jenny our guide, sweet, kind, informative. Being a novice rider, I appreciated the guidance Jenny provided when my horse Carter wanted to deviate to the green grass! How fun to be a part in guiding my horse and not just passively sitting on his back. My husband, the inspector, is very good at his job, and if there's something to critique, he would! He, too, was pleased with the ride!
