We had such a wonderful ride here. The owner and our wrangler were so helpful and friendly. They took time to prepare you for the ride. It would not be an easy ride for a novice, but we loved the challenge. The views were great as well as learning about the Turquoise Trail.

We travelled 1500 miles through central NM in about 5 days and Broken Saddle was definitely one of the highlights. Harold was a wonderful guide. We had both risen before, but are assuredly still beginners. Harold's instruction and tips made me feel confident in working with Keyo (my horse). Both horses were well trained and responsive to our level of... More

Our group of 3 beginners had a wonderful ride, on a balmy 50+ degree, sunny winter day. Although I've ridden a handful of times before, I definitely learned some useful info about riding that I'd never been told before. I had also never been up, over and down hills on horseback, so this wasn't like any of my other experiences.... More

My husband and I loved everything about Broken Saddle. Harold, Bob, the scenery, the horses...it was simply magical. The weather was chilly Dec. 2016, but honestly, once we got moving, the excitement and scenery took over. Bob was an excellent guide. He made sure that we were safe and secure before we took off for several nice trots and lopes.... More

My dad and I first rode here 13 years ago and returned again because we remembered the amazing experience we had. This time it was even better! The staff and horses are very friendly and never take you out of your comfort zone. Both of us have had riding experience in the past but, has been a very long time... More

Have been on vacation for a month and have tried horseback riding in every state I have to say that this has been the best horse riding experience. Harold is great his voicemail might come off as a mean person but he is far from that he just would like you to be honest on the things he is asking.... More

It was a beautiful day, and the ride through the Cerrillos Hills was delightful. Harold gave us excellent information on riding and handling the horses. Rob was an excellent guide. Our horses - Jack, Watson, and Cisco - were all responsive and well cared for. It was a great morning ride for our family!

Was so pleased that we were able to book a ride after calling the same day. Very pleasant on the phone and honest about what to expect. Great pre-ride lesson. Enjoyed our guide, the ride, the horses, small group, the scenery and whole experience. A great activity for me and my husband.

This place is wonderful - we especially liked how well they take care of their 24 horses. They don't use bits to steer horses by their mouths, only reins needed. Excellent guides. Beautiful setting. I went with my kids, ages 9 and 11, and it was a great introduction to horseback riding for them. The one-hour ride was perfect and... More
