“Tired ol horses”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Same as any other riding stable over priced n sad horses they have been down the same trail all their life's and will not get off it. Guess it's perfect for someone that has never been on a horse.

“Horses knew the trails.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I liked the little wrangler who assisted on the trail. The trail ride was standard with little adventure and no lone time.

“The best place to go horseback riding in Ruidoso!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Every summer, when we vacation in Ruidoso, we go horseback riding at Grindstone Stables. Every time we have had a great experience riding horses up and around the mountain trails. The views are beautiful and the horses are in good shape, so I can highly recommend Grindstone Stables as a great place to go horseback riding with the family.

“Terrific Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Our family of 7, which ages ranged from 60 to 13, had a wonderful experience. The owners and employees were very nice, informative and very respectful. The price was fair for a 1 hour guided tour. We even saw a group of Elk on our trip! Would definitely recommend it and we'd do it again.

“Great time had by all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

My family went to Grindstone Stables while in Ruidoso. We had three novice riders and three that knew which side to get on. They had a wonderful time the teens are so excitied and want to return any time we go back. The trail was a wonderful experience and the wranglers were very knowelgeable and handed each girl the right horse for them. I can't say enought good things about this experience, neither can the girls!!
