The Double L Ranch is a private training and riding facility located eight miles north of Bishop, California, in the Eastern High Sierra – the "Mule Capital of the World." We train both horses and mules in private or group lessons, and our students range from age 4 to 74.
If you are looking for high-quality care and personal attention for you and your animal, you will find it at Double L, owned and operated by Diana and Linda Laird. Come for a free evaluation. Once you ride with us, we are sure you will want to be part of the Double L family.

respect * confidence * responsibility * trust
You must earn your horse's respect.
You have to have confidence in yourself to make friends with an animal that outweighs you by 1,000 pounds.
You need to be confident that you have the ability to communicate to your horse that YOU are in charge.
You need to listen and pay attention to signs and signals your horse gives you.
You need to learn to trust your horse, and your horse needs to learn to trust you.
At the Double L Ranch, we teach riding with a focus on complete horsemanship.
Our professional staff has been trained in all phases of horsemanship.
We are all committed to working with our students to reach their goals.
We have top-quality lesson horses, for those of you who don't have a horse.
Give us a call. We are looking forward to enhancing your riding experience!
