Our trail ride ended up being just my boyfriend, myself, and Russ the owner. We had a wonderful time. I felt very comfortable with Russ. He's a friendly guy. Conversation was pleasant throughout the ride. Beautiful land. Well behaved horses. Pay attention to instructions at the beginning of the ride. Russ states that the horses aren't autopilot. And he's right.... More

My granddaughter and I took advantage this week of Russ and his great facility, company, and narrative to enjoy a great horseback ride. The time was full of stories, instructions, and great sights. The horses are well trained and clean, tac was also in super shape. A memory! Thanks Russ, jim and Emma

Russ got us in last minute, despite our procrastination to book. He had a great sense of humor! The horses were well taken care of and well behaved. The timing was perfect and the view was so amazing, a picture could not do it justice. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone!

My family and I had a great time. Russ the owner and tour guide was very informative and professional. After riding with him for an hour it felt like we knew him our whole life. His horses were well behaved and beautiful. It was a another great adventure added to our vacation. Definitely would recommend going.

We did the sunset ride with Russ and his assistant Tino(not sure of his name tho). They choose horses for is based on our size weight and experience level, helped us on and gave instructions on how to ride and "drive" the horse. He took it slow and checked on us often whole telling us about the history of the... More

Loved the ride, the views, peaceful gorgeous sunset. Horses are very well cared for & Russ is the real deal cowboy with the worlds prettiest blue eyes!!! I'm going back solo tonite. The horses are nose to tail so it's perfect for new riders. For experienced riders, not so much. You don't get to do your own thing. Still, I... More

My visit to Russ' ranch was consistent with the rest of my Santa Fe experience - peaceful and beautiful. Russ provided just the kind of personal experience that I have come to appreciate about this amazing town. As other reviewers have mentioned, he provided very specific directions. He was also very understanding when my uber driver opted to take his... More

I booked our ride day of, which Russ was able to accommodate. Knowing we were from away was thrilled that Russ called me personally to make sure we understood the directions, thank you! Beautiful scenery, knowledgeable guide, entertaining stories, we had a great time. Will do this again!!

We did the sunset ride for our honeymoon. The ride is beautiful, but it was setup too early for us to see the sunset. It was the perfect length of a ride and Russ was fun, though. WHEN we go back, we'd definitely do this again.
