Bridle Trails 
Rolling Hills has nearly 30 miles of recognized bridle trails in the community. The trails are maintained by the Rolling Hills Community Association and monitored by the Caballeros Club. The bridle trails are open to equestrians who have RHCA issued trail badges and pedestrians accompanied by a resident. Bicycles and motor vehicles are prohibited on trails. 
All horseback riders and pedestrians must check in with gate attendants when entering the community.
Trail Badges: All non-resident horseback riders are required to have a RHCA trail badge to use the trails. Applications for a trail badge may be obtained at the Association office or downloaded (see below). Completed applications should be submitted with a passport sized photo (1 1/2" x 2"). If a non-resident equestrian does not have a trail badge or has a badge and is not on a horse they will be refused entry. 
If you are aware of unsafe conditions on a trail please contact the RHCA office immediately at or (310)544-6222.  If it is after business hours or a weekend, please notify the gate staff.
Bridle Trail Rules of Conduct 
The hours of use and general rules of conduct for trail users are as follows:
  • Trails are to be used during daylight hours only and close at sunset. Requests for twilight or night time access to the bridle trails may be granted by special permission from the Board of Directors only. 
  • Use only established trails shown on the RHCA trail map. Going off of established trails is trespassing onto private property. Trail maps are available at the RHCA office at 1 Portuguese Bend Road. 
  • Smoking is prohibited at all times.
  • No littering. 
  • No bicycles or motor vehicles are NOT permitted on bridle trails. 
  • Riders entering at Crest Road West, Eastfield Gate or Main Gate must check in with gate personnel to give their name and show their trail badge upon entry. 
Riding Rings
There are two riding rings in the community, the Caballeros Ring and Hix Ring. Use of these riding rings are restricted to Rolling Hills residents and their guests only. Unauthorized use of riding rings may result in revocation of RHCA trail badge.
Caballeros Ring at Hesse's Gap: Caballeros Ring is the riding ring at Hesse's Gap near the intersection of Poppy Trail and Portuguese Bend Road. In October 1975, the riding facilities at the gap were dedicated as the Fred Hesse Equestrian Facilities, but they are also commonly referred to as Caballeros Ring. Hesse's Gap also features hitching posts and a picnic area. 
Clif Hix Ring: The Clif Hix ring is located on the side of the city, off John's Canyon trail near the North end of Buggy Whip Drive. The ring is named after Clif Hix, a long-time resident of Rolling Hills.
Tennis Courts
Residents of Rolling Hills and their guests have the use of three community tennis courts, located just west of the Main Gate. Courts #2 & #3 are open from 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM.  Court #1 is open from 7:30AM to dusk.
Court #1 is the single court and has no lights.
All courts may be reserved for 90-minute time blocks.  Residents may make reservations through the RHCA office or online through the RH Tennis Club website: Players must check in at the Main Gate prior to playing.
The tennis courts are closed on Thursdays from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM for cleaning. 
Reservations / Court Scheduling 
Each Resident will be limited to 2 advance reservations per week and 5 advance reservations total within a four-week rolling schedule. Standing reservations have been eliminated.  Members can add new reservations as existing reservations are used.  In the case of Household Accounts, limits are set at 4 advance reservations per week and 6 advance reservations total.  When making a reservation, please remember to check reservation type (Casual Play, Tennis Workout with a Pro, Lesson) and list your guests if known at the time of your reservation.  This will make the sign-in process at the gates faster and more efficient.
Please cancel your reservation at least 24 hours ahead of time, but same day cancelations are better than none. Cancelations should be made online, with the Association Office during normal business hours or with the Main Gate when the office is closed.
People who do not live in or own property in Rolling Hills are considered to be visitors regardless of their family relationship. A resident may invite up to three visitors to join them on their court for regular play if that resident stays at the court the entire time. Arriving visitors must sign in at the Main Gate. If the host resident has not arrived, the visitors must wait outside the court until the resident arrives. Visitors may play as long as the resident remains on the court.
