Hands down, this is the best ride!!! I simply can't say enough. My daughter and I took the canyon ride. This was not a "canned" walking trail ride, like we did a few days earlier elsewhere in NM. However, they can cater to any interest and riding ability. They loaded up the horses and we drove to the canyon. It... More

This is no ordinary trail ride!!! Four medium to experienced riders , we were treated to the New Mexico True ride in the San Lorenzo Canyon just 25 minutes truck ride from Ranch. What a magnificent ride and experience. We all thought it was one of the best adventures we've ever done in New Mexico and we're sad that having... More

I can honestly say this is one of the top ten experiences of my life. We did a 2 hour sunset ride, and I don't have enough good things to say about Dakodah and Jill. They were so professional and personal. It was such a fun ride. I came with my parents and husband.. they made sure to give us... More

This was the best horseback trail ride I have ever been on! We went up into the mountains with wonderful views, and in the canyons. The owner has a lot of knowledge of horses and matches the saddle and horse to the rider. It was very comfortable. Our guide made this an wonderful adventure that was the hi-light of my... More

My wife and I and our 12 year old daughter went for a 2 hour ride from 2PM. We had some fabulous well mannered horses and the guides took us on a great route through the hills. All three of us had ridden but weren't experts. We were allowed to ride to our abilities which was great! We went up... More

I decided to take some women friends for a ride to celebrate my birthday. Three of us have many years of experience riding - our own horses, at training barns, on Polo fields, and with outfitters. Therefore, we have plenty of ways to compare. All arrangements with Acacia Riding Adventures were made online. Dacodah Herkenhoff is very prompt in answering... More

My family and I have been spending the summer in New Mexico for several years now and horse riding at ARA is the best thing we have ever done here. We have two young daughters (aged 6 and 9) and the way our instructor cared for them was just outstanding. I simply cannot recommend this place highly enough. Our only... More

We wanted to go horseback riding but couldn't find a place to work with our schedule or allow a 7 year old to ride. Acacia was flexible with our arrival time and allows younger children. It was an awesome experience!! Our guide, Jill, was informative and great with children. She took us around the mountain and told us about the... More

If you want to experience NM, go on a sunset ride in the San Lorenzo Canyon with Dacodah & his staff. Words cannot describe the beauty we experienced, utterly breathtaking! Impressed with Dacodah's ability to match each rider's skill level with a horse & give all riders opportunities to ride at their own comfort level. I own horses so I... More
