The sunset ride was beautiful! The employees were very friendly. I could not have asked for more on this ride. My 11 year old son, my wife, and myself had a great time. This ride was one of the highlights of our trip!

I took a friend who never rode before for the Sunset ride, and we enjoyed ourselves. They were patient, helpful and friendly. They helped everyone take individual and couple photos at sunset spot. I'd definitely take a date for another sunset ride.

We did two tours: the sunset ride at Big Bend Stables and the half-day ride at the Lahitas Stable. Both tours were really great - spectacular scenery, knowledgeable guides, well-cared for horses. We recommend both as fun rides!

The only thing I would change is the weather. Go when cooler (it was over 100° when we went). Staff is friendly and communicative. Horses pretty much led themselves since they've done it so many times. Beginners shouldn't worry. Enjoyed the views. Would love to...More

My daughter and I took a half-day ride this week. It was fantastic. The horses definitely knew how to walk on the steep and rocky terrain.
