We do lots of vacation trail rides but this was by far the best. The scenery was indescribable, the horses were superb and well-cared for and our guide was sooo patient and read everyone's ability very well. We had novice riders with us and they said it was the best part of the one week stay in Big Bend. We... More

Left early while still cool. Rode up a Mesa that overlooked Maverick Ranch and the Rio Grande. Excellent horses and guide. If you like the more adventurous rides, this ones for you.

Well,...so glad you enjoyed your ride! Unfortunately for us, it sounds like you rode with our neighbors at the Lajitas Equestrian Center. They do a good job. We all look forward to your next visit to the Big Bend! More

Wrangler was great. The trial though was rough, especially for beginners like myself and my wife. Traveled very close to ledges and slopes. Horses were very good. I would not recommend this particular trail for beginners. Have to say the scenery was beautiful.

As always, we are very grateful that you folks joined us and appreciate your input. Our apologies if you were misled regarding the trail that you rode on; we do have easier stretches of trail at the Big Bend Stables, where as the Lajitas Stables can be more challenging. We will encourage the reservation staff to share better information in... More

I did the two-hour evening horseback tour out of Lajitas and had a wonderful time. The scenery is beautiful and the staff are wonderful at making sure you feel comfortable on a horse. All around great experience and will definitely be doing this again next time we head to West Texas.

We did the sunset ride out of the Lajitas stables. It was beautiful and our guide (Kelly, I believe it was) was so personable. We had a great time and the ride itself is just beautiful. I highly recommend it!

They are 6 and 9 years old and our guide Hailey was fantastic with the kids and showed them just what to do. We did the 1 hour ride and it was just the right amount of... More

The two hour sunset ride at Lajitas stables was awesome! Our guides Javier, Armando, and Bob were very helpful and supportive--especially to my kids who had never ridden a horse. The views from the top of the canyon were amazing--a vacation experience my family will never forget. I would highly recommend Lajitas Stables to anyone.
