Take the time to get out on one of their horses - we took the sunset ride and the guides 'walked' us through it without a problem (and neither of us had been on a horse since we were kids). Where you start doesn't look like it will be much in the way of scenic, but over the hill and... More

I dropped my husband and 15 year old daughter off for a half-day trip. Kelly, our guide, really set my mind at ease. She sensed I was nervous about their safety and she really focused on giving clear instruction, stating the risks, and describing how she mitigates them. I was confident as they set out for their trip. When I... More

Definitely the most challenging and beautiful trail ride I've ever been on. Kelly, our guide, was informative and fun and had some great stories. We had a blast! Highly recommended. We'll definitely be back. :)

Everyone at the Big Bend Stables was friendly and helpful. We scheduled the 1/2 day with lunch excursion and we were not disappointed. Our guide, Armando, was helpful, professional, friendly, and an upcoming comedian! The horses were well trained and this was a relief to our novice group of riders. Lunch was fresh, healthy, and fulfilling. We strongly recommend Big... More

The length of the ride was just right. The horses were gentle and we felt safe. Armando did a great job as our guide.

The guide,Josh, is great, but the meeting location is not clear enough. When we called the agency, they gave us someone's number, not the guide, that woman was so bad, even yelled at us.

We so appreciate your poetic recall of the Sunset ride with Lajitas*Big Bend Stables. Though tours of this sort do run a little high on the ole pocketbook, it is well worth it to travel with the pros of 30+ years and know that you are well watched over and your every need is our pleasure to serve.

This is a must include to any visit to the Big Bend area. Our guide Javier was awesome handling the horses and the questions we all had for him. He prepared a wonderful lunch on the trail and had plenty for all of us to enjoy. We had a great time, and highly recommend Big Bend Stables.

My daughter and I really enjoyed our horseback ride tour up the canyon. Our tour guide, Josh Buntyn, was an excellent guide. He was very good at making us feel comfortable with our horses and made sure we were doing okay during our ride up the canyon. I would definitely recommend this attraction.
