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.

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.

On very short notice, I managed to get a reservation for a morning ride for my husband and I on a weekend morning. Russ is a great guide and a fun host, who offers very good, detailed directions for folks who may not have been in a saddle for a number of years. He knows his horses, and he knows... More

We called the place yesterday to get more info to see the movie set and talked to the owner. First off we were told NO STAGE COACH RIDES and only experienced rider could do the horse back ride. We are from Texas, own horses, and we have all been around them our whole life. We told to the owner and... More
