Our guide was a very informative, patient, not to mention hilarious man! He said he'd been with the company for many years, and it showed. The breathtaking views are something I doubt I'll experience anywhere else, and we will definitely be back again for the overnight trip. The lunch our guide packed was delicious, and we are in a beautiful canyon area. He allowed for viewing and photo breaks, without having to request, to soak in the beautiful views of the mountains, river, cliffs, and wildlife. As an experienced rider my expectations are always low for trail rides, as no trotting, galloping is allowed for safety in general-however-this ride provided all the thrills necessary. The horses are so well trained you don't even have to be an experienced rider though, it seems they could literally make this trek in their sleep, all you've got to do is sit back, follow the instructions provided and relax. On another note-At the end of our trip, I thought and was CERTAIN I had not been given my card back from our guide, as I could not locate it, so was in touch with the office several times, in which they were very helpful and responsive, not to mention patient. They did a thorough search, even on the actual trail! After a few days I actually found my credit card at home and called to inform them of my mistake. They remained humble and appreciative of me letting them know. (OOPS-I feel so bad about the trouble they went through) There were no complaints on their end and they handled it very professionally. We would recommend this ride and these stables to anyone! What an amazing experience."

Dakota was the best guide. He gave us a wealth of information about the area. He even went out of his way to leave a special surprise for us. Made our day! Lunch was delicious…the views were spectacular. Highly recommended.

It was a good riding length and we watched the sunset from a small plateau. I would probably ride at their other stables next time. Start of ride too close to road, did get some of the local mining history though. Thunderstorms were rolling in at end and we sauntered back instead of making haste.

My associate and I participated in the 1/2 Day With Lunch tour on July 6th 2021 with Dakota as our guide. We had already conducted a multi-day tour of the Big Bend National Park side of the landscape. During our journey is was clear we where witnessing yet another facet of this unique geographical region. Dakota was very informative on educating us on the local floral as we passed examples on horseback. He also was knowledgeable on the history of the area. The State Park side of the region was well worth exploring via horseback. During out lunch break, Dakota brought us to a scenic canyon and set us up with a cold cut lunch and a variety of vegetables and meats. We took a brief hike, around 15-20 minutes down the canyon while Dakota set everything up for lunch. Upon return we were very please with the spread. Plenty food to fill, we didn't finish. The horses were very personal and well trained. I highly recommend to request Dakota as your guide. -Nick Q.
