My wife and I did rides at both places. They are sister properties and work together. We did the half day tour with lunch into the mountains at Lajitas. It was great. Beautiful scenery. Good horses. Good food for lunch. We also did the desert sunset ride at big bend stables. It was also very nice. Very pretty scenery and they timed it perfect for sunset. Armando was the lead guide for each of our tours and he was great. My wife was very nervous and he reassured her and made her comfortable. We preferred the mountain ride but both were very nice.

Went on the stargazer meza ride at the equestrian center. Had a wonderful time riding the horses (all docile, and easy to ride even for total newbies like me). Had a great dinner by the bonfire afterwards with fantastic food! Would love o go again.

Good horses, nice guide, beautiful scenery! Would ride with them again! We did a 2 hour ride, and then a 3 hour. Pretty exhausting but fun. The 2 hour ride is perfect for beginners, I would recommend the 3 hour for people that can handle more laborious tasks.

Wonderful trip! I recommend to all. We had a great time riding through the rocky hills. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, told us about plants, horses and local history. Highly recommend, I have no experience riding, horse was very gentle, 3 hours was enough, my butt was starting to get sore. Would do it again on my next visit!
