Lajitas stables were easy to work with to get our trip scheduled. They even accommadated a last minute change to our party of 6. Our guide, Javier was good. Our ride was not only beautiful but alittle challenging. The trails up in the state park are rocky and narrow but allow for fantastic scenery. Our party had experienced and first... More

We got started a little later than we were supposed to, but, our guide was very friendly and she did a good job of keeping everyone and their horses having a relaxing time. The ride was gorgeous and we loved our horses.

Armando was an excellent guide; he was concerned for the horses and clients but also cracked jokes and made it fun. Our lunch was absolutely delicious, but not exactly gourmet. The horses were great for less experienced riders like myself.

We went on the sunset ride. We had never rode horses before and we were a little nervous but everyone made us feel good and safe. It was the kids favorite part of the whole trip.

We took a half day ride with lunch. It had rained earlier in the morning so the desert smelled so fresh. The food was very good and the ride spectacular. Our wranglers were very knowledgeable and entertaining.

We had a few things on our wish list at big bend and one was horseback riding. Our host recommended this place and we were incredibly pleased with our experience. Gaye in the office was great in figuring out how to fit us in last minute (our fault, not theirs) and exuded confidence that she would make it work-and she... More

We took a half-day ride through the desert around Terlingua, TX and the outskirts of Big Bend National Park. Pretty cool desert scenery, saw some petroglyphs. The horses were well-behaved and bomb-proof. Our guide, Armando, had a very dry sense of humor. My only knock is that we didn't actually go into the National Park, but I admit this was... More
