We arrived and were the only ones on our sunset ride. It was perfect, the horses were well behaved and sure footed in the quite often challenging terrane. The view were stunning, we did the ride in April so the desert flowers were out in full bloom. A fantastic experience.

I highly recommend that if you are in the Big Bend area, Marfa/Alpine/Fort Davis area for a vacation, that you make for sure to book a horseback ride with Lajitas & Big Bend Stables. We had so much fun! The horses were very well behaved, knew their "job" and I was never worried. Our guides, Rachel and Armondo, were awesome!... More

The 3 of us did a 2 hour sunset trail ride. Our trail guide was hilarious! The horses were overall well behaved (it's an animal with a mind of its own... They are unpredictable) and he took us an extra 40 minutes on the ride. We got amazing photos and learned a lot about the area. Highly recommend. Already planning... More

We took the half day with lunch tour from the big bend stables. The trip there was scenic and a fun ride. The lunch our guide served was great, and he was funny. He was also knowledgable of the area, its creatures and the plants. Our horses were good and strong. Overall it was a good trip.

We took the two hour Quicksilver Mine ride and had a great time.

The people were very friendly, but we were very disappointed with our Sunset Ride. The trail was in a relatively ugly and trashed area behind the stables and we ended the trail before sunset.

WE are truly saddened by your disappointment. The Big Bend Stables riding area can be a lot of fun for most and offers a horseback riding experience with professional and well trained wranglers and mounts. This acreage is not pristine "Park" lands and does, at times, fall short of some expectations. The Stables does offer riding at our Lajitas Stables... More

We booked a 1/2 day ride for our Spring Break vacation. We were traveling with 4 adults and 1 tween. We had 3 beginner riders, 1 novice and me. Riding was my passion before I became a mom.
