Big Bend Ride

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.

Fun and fine food are all a part of Big Bend Stables' mission when sharing the Big Bend from the saddle. And Javier says he had a great time too! Thank you for the fine review and come see us again1 More

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.

We did the sunset ride and it was absolutely beautiful. This was a very good beginner ride with some interesting terrain and history. Definitely not a boring flat ride.

Our sunset ride at Big Bend Stables was splendid. Our guide, Kelly, was extremely knowledgeable about the area and very friendly. She made my husband (not a horse person) feel very comfortable on his mule and took care of him. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for a nice ride around Big Bend.
