We stayed in Cody for a few nights while visiting Yellowstone. On one of our free days we did the Wild Mustang tour with our two sons (18 and 13 years old). We saw two herds of horses and a few antelope. While it was interesting to see from afar, it was not a "must". Our boys said it was boring. Our tour guide was nice and knew a lot about the horses and the land.

Wasn't sure what to expect. Once we saw the horses it was pretty cool to see them in their natural environment. The guide has names for the horses and some background on the horses which made the tour interesting. We weren't able to get out of the van which was fine as it was hot. It's not a very long tour so if you do this first thing in the morning you would definitely have time to do other tours and see other things in the afternoon.

I have been riding horses for over 28 years and love horses...yet never had the honor of seeing wild horses. If you only have one day in this area you MUST take this tour! We were so close and our pictures are amazing, Ken is an incredible guide whose passion and love of these magnificent creatures is evident in his passionate and moving stories of the herd. These mustangs may not be here for long as our federal government is literally rounding them up and taking mothers from babies and mares from their stallions. See these mustangs with Ken and then get active to help save these amazing beautiful creatures of God, but also a piece of our American historical legacy. Thank you Ken!!

We booked a tour without knowing much except that one teenager in the group loves horses. Her grandmother thought seeing "wild ones" would be a treat for the whole group of 5. It was. We were driven in a van by McKenna, a young lady who knew her business, the rules, and ultimately, we found the "wild horses."
As we were bumped along through hot, dry desert that is BLM-owned and supervised land on dirt, McKenna made what most consider the "doomsday comment." She said she had never failed to find the horses while giving a tour.
That's when most of us thought that we were right...we should have stayed in Cody for the 4th of July parade.
McKenna's record holds. She found two herds together--playing, feeding their babies, evenv fighting. She knew them all by name and patiently pointed them out to an inquisitive youngster several times.
McKenna also made us stay within the BLM rules...no getting out of the van when they are close, etc. Strict but not overbearing, for sure, as she explained what we could and could not do and the consequences for us and for the tour company.
We could not have been more surprised and pleased with the time we spent seeing something "off the beaten path."

We were only in Cody for two days and we're glad we had time to sign up for Red Canyon's Tour. Ken's passion for thes beautiful wild horses is evident - as is his knowledge of individual horses and the herds.

He ably navigated a large bus on "cow paths" and stopped often to allow us to enjoy the horses. I liked that he was very careful not to spook the horses and they came very close to the bus. We got some wonderful photos and had a great time.

Even if you only have a day or two in Cody - you want to sign up for a tour with Ken Martin!
