A friend and I had a spectacular experience riding at Broken Saddle. Both of us are novice riders . Rod was great in explaining things putting us at ease with his expertise. The ride was thrilling and views breathtaking,. We highly recommend choosing them for an experience not forgotten. Thank You Broken Saddle

Have been on vacation for a month and have tried horseback riding in every state I have to say that this has been the best horse riding experience. Harold is great his voicemail might come off as a mean person but he is far from that he just would like you to be honest on the things he is asking.... More

It was a beautiful day, and the ride through the Cerrillos Hills was delightful. Harold gave us excellent information on riding and handling the horses. Rob was an excellent guide. Our horses - Jack, Watson, and Cisco - were all responsive and well cared for. It was a great morning ride for our family!

Was so pleased that we were able to book a ride after calling the same day. Very pleasant on the phone and honest about what to expect. Great pre-ride lesson. Enjoyed our guide, the ride, the horses, small group, the scenery and whole experience. A great activity for me and my husband.

This place is wonderful - we especially liked how well they take care of their 24 horses. They don't use bits to steer horses by their mouths, only reins needed. Excellent guides. Beautiful setting. I went with my kids, ages 9 and 11, and it was a great introduction to horseback riding for them. The one-hour ride was perfect and... More

I cannot recommend a sunset ride with the Broken Saddle Riding Company enough! We took our ride in October when the temperature was perfect and experienced all the beautiful colors of the autumn sky. Harold and the team do a fantastic job and offer one of the quintessential New Mexico experiences. You will feel like you're the only ones in... More

We had some time to kill one evening of our trip and scheduled the one hour sunset ride. What a great experience! We were given a great, quick tutorial that made the ride easy and enjoyable! The guys were accommodating and full of information about horses and the area. We stopped in Madrid on the way back to ABQ and... More

I had only rode twice before and neither experiences were good. Broken Saddle gave me confidence and I had an incredible rewarding experience. Excellent instruction peppered with humour, stories and great information about the land we were riding in.
