Some of the reviews are very misleading. I have never been to the tanque verde in the past 15 years that the horses did not recieve the best hay (alfalfa) and care available to such a large herd. I have owned horses all my life and a bale of hay is 10.00 a bale now and shoes all the way around are 60.00 a horse every 4 to 6 weeks. The wranglers have always put the horses that were injured or had issues seperate to be treated and I have seen the vet out there serveral times on my trips. The horses are well cared for and are not dead heads. They are incrediable. The wranglers are very knowledgable and very cautious with the guest. I have ridden the lope rides and i have ridden the walk rides. I enjoy them both. The test to pass the lope rides are fair and the comment about the test being to hard to pass in not true.
My late husbands last dream before passing with cancer was to take all of our children back to the ranch one more time and we did 2 months before he left. They were really good to us and worked hard to accomodate our special needs. The wranglers made sure he was safe and that the children went home with some memories they would never forget. As far as the tv goes we asked for one on our first trip and never turned it on. You stay so busy and are so ready for bed that you don't even miss it. It is a great place to go and just enjoy quality time with your family doing something that anyone can enjoy. If I could afford it I would go every year.
