We chose the half day ride. Enjoyed our time, especially our guide Dakota. Beautiful scenery, wonderful horses, and the other staff was lovely. It was the highlight of our trip to Big Bend.

Thanksgiving week took a trail ride with Janelle (hope that is right). She was amazing, patient, fun, informative. The quality of the horses were excellent; scenery was breathtaking; lunch in Lunchbox Canyon was delish. Highly recommend.
