Meet Our Horses
Enjoy the Finest Horseback Riding in New Mexico
We take great care to have excellent, well trained, well cared for horses. Our horses are the foundation of our business, and as such are very important. We make sure to give them plenty of good quality feed, proper hoof, teeth and vet care, as well as love! We have very good quality tack because we want both our guests and our horses to be comfortable. Meet some of our horses:
