We both really enjoyed the day, we must have seen at least 50 or more Mustangs and Patrick was VERY informative and answered all our questions. We are hoping to go on another tour soon to hopefully see the little babies!

This is a once in life time experience to get close to these beautiful horses. Patrick is a great guide willing to answer as many questions as you have all while tracking these amazing animals. The tour is three hours completely devoted to the mustangs!
