I have loved horses since I was little and never imagined I could see so many during a 4-hour tour. In addition to the many horses we saw, we also learned so much about the... More

Hosts Patrick and Tina really love their horses and it shows. Our guide Patrick took us all over the horse haunted mountains and gave us a brief history of the horse in the West. The big surprise was how close we got to these gentle and often miss aligned creatures. We were still then they came right up to the... More

My husband and I took Tour #3 on Valentine's Day and had a fantastic time. We saw at least 50 wild horses-- a few bands of stallions/mares/colts, plus several small bachelor bands of stallions. I expected to only be able to enjoy them from a large distance, but we were able to get quite close to several bands (though Tina... More

Seeing wild horses had been on my 'bucket list' for a quite a while. I was really glad to have chosen Tina and this tour (#3 on her website) to go on this adventure. The guide's knowledge of the horse groups is impressive and you can tell she truly loves these animals. The tour vehicle was very comfortable and Tina... More
