  • We were just there on Thursday last week and it was absolutely perfect. The horses were well taken care of and the site was clean and in a beautiful area. Our guide, Robert, was very experienced, funny and helpful in offering guidance. He shared some of the history of the reservation and about Koli, which was a great addition to the tour. My horse stepped on a rattlesnake at some point, and he was quick at giving advice on how to react to the situation. My overall experience was awesome and I will definitely be back!
  • Roger and Justino are great down-to-earth people. We had an amazing trail ride and good talks! Justino was our guide and gave us lots of information regarding the reservation and local wildlife.
  • My 2 boys have been riding here in the Kids Club for 2 years and it was the first place I thought of when my husband and I started looking for venues to get married. The staff was excellent and responsive during the planning process and the day-of, the ceremony and food (fry bread!) were just amazing. There were cowboy games for the kids and a very efficient and friendly bar! The ceremony was at sunset on the lawn behind the office and it was PERFECT! Sigh, wish I could do it again :)
  • ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! I took my mom here for a 6:00AM private 90 minute tour on Saturday and it was just awesome. Our tour guide was THE BEST. So helpful and funny and taught myself and my mom a lot about the land we did not know. My horse was Bubba and my moms was rosey, beautiful funny horses ! It was such a great ride and the sunrise was so beautiful. We saw two rattlesnakes ! Our guide was so good at avoiding them and directing us with our horses to go around. The wild horses that roam were breath taking and curious. It was such a fun and exciting ride we can not wait to come back! I can’t say enough great things about this place ! The horses all look happy and healthy. They have restrooms on site and bring water for you and help you get up and off if need be! Thank you guys for being so awesome, customer service at its finest ! :) :) :) :) :) See you guys soon!!!!
