New Mexico Mines, Wild West Towns and Turquoise Trail Tour from Albuquerque

The historic Turquoise Trail, a National Scenic Byway between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, is synonymous with Native American spirituality, Spanish explorers, adventurous mining, and brave pioneers.<br>The blue-green turquoise, nationally recognized as a precious stone, was first mined by the early Pueblo people as early as 900 A.D. From the 1800s onward Spanish explorers, missionaries and prospectors followed the trail of the native American Indians already here. Today the National Scenic Byway is home to many modern day settlers and host to tens of thousands of visitors a year!<br>The drive is approximately 50 miles along Highway 14. Enjoy breathtaking scenery while traveling back into history through the mining towns of Golden, Madrid, and Cerrillos. These small towns are now alive with art, crafts, museums and restaurants.<br>Drive, gawk, walk, and eat on this trail of history!

An unforgettable experience. My wife and I and our four adult children will always remember these two magical hours. Like stepping in a western movie. Incredible sceneries, and all terrain riding experience. None of the six of us knew we had it in ourselves to ride in such trails, thanks to Harold who made it seem easy. The ranch is so charming, and make sure that you meet Sasha, probably one of the cutest dog in the West. If there is one thing you want to do while visiting New Mexico, the Broken Saddle Ranch is the one.

Great trail riding experience. We were both experienced riders and Harold accommodated us very well. The horses were in good shape, and Harold was a knowledgeable trail guide. We would definitely come back to Broken Saddle.

What can I say. If you are in Santa Fe - or even in New Mexico, you must come to Broken Saddle for a ride. The owner Harold is a passionate and knowledgeable rider who truly cares about his horses. He’s been working with and around horses for decades and it was an honor to spend the afternoon riding with him. I’ve ridden my whole life, and although my husband is more intermediate-level, he can keep up with advanced riders, so we signed up for an advanced 3-hour private ride on our last day in New Mexico. Harold took us through the trails he himself had set up in the vast, quiet, pristine rolling hills of the nearby State Park and shared his knowledge of the region as well as personal stories. The conversation flowed easily and time flew by - we even ended up going over our allotted time. Grab some cameras if you can - Harold will take you to a vista overlooking the valley and surrounding mountains / mesas and happily take some shots of you on the horses. What a fantastic time - thank you again Harold, we will definitely be back if we are ever in the area!
