The horse ride took place over 4-5 hours and we tracked down from the drop off point to the beach to check on Cowboy Mark's cows, then back up through a bush trail - the scenery is stunning and well worth experiencing in this unique way. Cowboy Mark was professional, very friendly and chatty - telling us about his experiences... More

Mark is a great story teller and cowboy. It was a fun filled day of horseback riding with his dog Aly running along side us the whole trip. A must when visiting Homer.

My husband and I went on the ride before any other activity in Homer. It was as fantastic as the other reviews mentioned. Mark was in fact very interesting and his beautiful dog Aly was a great companion. Loved the horses, very well mannered. The view was outstanding. I became very sore towards the end of the ride and for... More

We went riding with Mark and Cheyenne recently and had a great time. If you book in the offseason you have to leave a message. Mark lives off the grid on his homestead cabin over the winter so doesn't answer calls until about May. Hearing his stories and learning about the lifestyle is very interesting. The "four hour ride" takes... More

Be prepared for breathtaking views of Kachemak Bay and the tidal flats. You'll meet Mark at his office, sign some papers, and he'll load up the horses along with his sweet dog Ali and drive about 10 miles farther down East End Road to the start of the trail. Mark is a wealth of information about the area, as well... More

I spent three days riding with Mark who took me to wonderful places and shared entertaining stories about his life in the wilderness. Mark has the inate ability to live for months in the wild with his cows, horses and dog named Allie only to return to thoroughly entetain the people who travel with him. He demonstrates a sincere interest... More

Thank you Mark for an amazing trip! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with you and the horses. Our experience was filled with beautiful scenery and great weather. Mark was great company. He had a wide range of knowledge and experience that we enjoyed greatly. I have no complaints about this ride, but I'd suggest having experience with... More

We went on a great tour with Mark last summer. We have taken several trail rides in different parts of the country. I have to say that this was the best. The landscape was just magnificent, the horses were great and Mark was just a great guide. With all his stories it was always fun! We all could really really... More

This was my second ride with Mark. The horses are well fed and sure footed. The beach ride with views of the bay and mountains are very pretty. A very enjoyable day.

Mark is a true cowboy horseman which added to the experience. The weather was perfect and the ride up the Bay and across the rivers was beautiful. Mark has great knowledge of the area and is very entertaining. Oh, glaciers and mountains also gorgeous. We rode with a some group of nice people which is always pleasant.
