Grindstone Stables
#22 of 22 things to do in Ruidoso
We dropped by the stables after a delightful hike by the Lake the day before; we were so impressed by all the love, respect and care that the owner and his delightful family (and wranglers) showed to their animals.
From the beginning the entire staff very friendly concerned with our care and experience and above all our safety very professional and family type feel.

The township of Lincoln is very cozy, great place to see a little history of Billy the Kid.
Ruidoso is a good spot for a family vacation, lots of forest for hiking etc year around and the skiing during the winter.
Ski Apache

The crew at the shop invited me to park in their lot, and Shane offered to take my wife, two kids, and me to the house in his vehicle(which was immaculate, by the way).
After completing the zip line, the whole family rode the gondola up to the top.

I went with a few friends and their children and we all had a blast!
After the races, the whole family played miniature golf, and I have to say was probably the best course for the money I've been on in a long time!

You may also wish to take time to visit the adjacent Hubbard Museum and the Billy the Kid Visitors Center.

Grindstone Lake

There is a walking path all around the lake and it just seemed so peaceful and a great place to have breakfast or lunch at one of the picnic tables while watching the kids or others fish.
We so enjoyed our hike around the lake and the brief conversations that we had with families fishing or picnicking.

Great place for a family vacation spot if you love the mountains, golf, and the horse races.
The staff at the concession stands and gift shop were really nice to the kids, and we had a great time picking (pretty much random) horses and cheering for them.
