“Excellent adventure!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

My wife and I did the half day ride with Mike and Sara. We had a blast. They made sure we knew what we were doing and we were comfortable with our horses. Beautiful ride with great views. We highly recommend taking a ride with Mike and Sara.

“The best trail ride experience Ive ever had”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Listen, most trail rides are nose-to-but, cattle drive, get as many people out on bored horses. At a snails pace. Sarah and Mike are a different brand: they love their horses and treat them well. The horses are all well behaved but not robotic. They tailer the ride to your experience level. My partner had no riding experience and he rode Bandito who treated him beautifully. I had experience and Sarah and I got to do a few gallops, and I rode Kimba, and absolutely lovely and responsive horse.

“A "must do lifetime experience that you, your family or group will love, enjoy, cherish and grow from the total experience. Wor”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Sara and mike are the group leaders of the horseback riding adventure and between their unique level of patience, kindness and the beautiful, serene, natural environment in the most remote location, with very well trained horses, it was an experience of a lifetime for each member of our family.
I believe this is a great experience, excellent for children and adults, Sara is incredibly talented with children, and helping them gain courage, self confidence and self esteem-
She has endless patience and sensitivity. We will always cherish this very special time we had watching the sunset on our horses, watching ourselves and our children develop confidence in themselves while connecting with nature around them, and bonding with the very special horses they were given.
It was absolutely an experience of a lifetime. I would spend the money on this experience. It can't be duplicated anywhere.

“Fantastic ride”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We had the chance to ride with Sara and Mike and will without doubt go there again. According to your experience Sara matches you with the best horse possible and gives you instruction before leaving so as to be sure to have a great time once in the beautiful surrondings of the ranch. 2 of us are used to ridding and we splitted from the rest of the group to have a mind-blowing gallup experience. So great horses, very interesting people and breathtaking sceneries, can't ask for much more. Thanks again Sara and Mike!

Thanks so much for the review! We do take time before we leave to make sure everyone is comfortable with their horse. It was a real mix here - from a first time rider to more experienced riders. Great to watch the ladies gallop in our stunning desert. Hope to see you all again!

“I went through the dessert on a horse...”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

My daughter and i had a great ride through the wonderful landscape. We both are experenced riders from Germany and had a lot of fun. My daughter hopeless fell in love with Bandito, a mustang. The horses were wonderful and good trained. We had several galopps despite the high temperature and i think the horses had fun, too. My daughter enjoyed a litte gallopp on her own and jumped over a trunk for several times. thx Sara for this great experience!

Thank you for taking time to write here. In case of translation questions, we were able to offer this young girl the chance to feel the freedom to gallop ahead on her own and to do a little jumping over a raised log (she has experience in jumping) and Bandito won another heart that day! Please note - we do not offer longer than half day rides at this time of year due to the heat and take special care of our horses when its very hot or cold but our horses handle this length of ride with no problem due to their care/training.
