Two Hour Morning Rides

We had the pleasure of having Kelly as our wrangler and she was super friendly and was fantastic with our daughter who was there for her first ride. We couldn't of had a better experience! We were in from Texas for a wedding and she informed us of your stables in the Big Bend area and we will for sure be going down in the fall!

Sunset Ride

Peyton took my wife and I on the most stunning sunset ride. We both had not ridden since we were kids but she made sure we were safe and moving at a comfortable pace. 2hr ride with a short break for views and pictures! Highly recommended and a good deal.

Great! Wouldn't Change a Thing.

We had an outstanding 3 hour ride with Peyton, who was professional and knowledgeable, about the horses and the area. She was attentive to our needs without being overbearing, which is not easy when experienced riders come on one of these types of rides. e felt totally safe while admiring the Rio Grande Gorge, surrounding mountains and other scenery.

Exceeded Expectations

Relaxed, non-commercial, great service. We were able to arrange a same day private ride. The guide and the scenery exceeded expectations.
