Highlight of our trip. The Cowboys were so energetic and proud to show us their ranch and heritage. Their love for horses and riding was contagious and we had a wonderful adventure. No horse experience necessary but also fun for experienced riders!

We did the standard half day horse tour and got back when the sun was setting. Early tour seemed crowded but afternoon was just the two of us. Did walk, trot, canter... hilly and rocky terrain. Two guides were awesome . Fun active time.
