We had a lovely ride in a snow covered valley along a babbling little creek. The horses, Bean and Peanut, were gentle and trail smart. This location is very far back in the woods (no cell signal) and the roads are definitely "the beaten path" so understand the riding will be not just be a trot around an arena.

Very rude old man had us to leave and come back in an hour then we came back 45mins later so 15mins earlier then he had said to be and another family got there and he told us to wait another hour and let the family who came after us go first think he might have been racist anyways we ended just leaving after some rude behavior and their horses don’t seem very well trained either from my experience working stock shows in Texas

Enjoyed the horseback riding. The trail could of used a little more sites. Guide was very friendly. Horses was very gentle. I rode Bean. It was a great experience, I enjoy riding in the mountains. I go every three months.It is a great way to clear your mind from the everyday life of the busy work schedule.

My friend and I booked Bonita because it was available 7 days a week where the Grindstone was only available on weekends. Robert, who took our call, was curt, unfriendly and abrasive on the phone but we thought we would follow through because we were looking for the horse riding as part of our trip to Ruidoso. The drive out there had it's ups and downs. Bonita Lake was drained and being dredged. The road was in very bad shape in places (and I don't normally mind a dirt road), the stables were run down, our greeting was very unfriendly, the horses were 22 and 26 years old and the trail was full of loose rocks in most places and on an incline where one major stumble from the horse could cause a serious injury.. From the first ten minutes into the ride, we just wanted it to be over. There were downed trees with sharp branches sticking up all along. The horses would stumble often. I do not recommend these stables and can't figure how anyone in previous reviews could possibly think it could be fun. Honestly, I don't think these people should be in business.

My husband found this stable by accident and loved it. The trial and guide were excellent. Even the portapotty was clean.
