We visited as a group of two in the early afternoon of 26th April. Mary was our 'guide' for want of a better word. She was absolutely fantastic! Both of us have limited riding experience and Mary really made us feel at ease. We didn't ride as a trail attached by rope, but instead were roaming free as if we... More

Loved this riding experence. The two cowgirls, Cherry and Sierra, were so friendly and helpful. The horses were well behaved and well taken care of. We rode on the Los Cedros ranch along the rim of Palo Duro Canyon. The views were amazing. We took the 2 hour ride.

We rode with our 2 teenage daughters and had an amazing time! The cowgirls were wonderful guides, very knowledgeable and great with the horses and even a nervous mamma (me!) They made us feel very safe and comfortable! Thank you for a wonderful experience! We highly recommend this for all ages!

This was the highlight of my Route 66 trip. The cowgirls and the owner of the ranch, Phyllis were extremely friendly and hospitable. The horses were wonderful and as we rode along the beautiful scenery we were given a really interesting history of the cowboys and native Americans in this area. As an experienced rider I was treated to a... More

Very friendly and helpful cowgirl guides and well trained horses. Our guides were very patient with us and our 11, 9 and 7 yr old kids. We went on the 2 hr ride and each got our own horse. Not the typical trail ride we expected. You are encouraged to ride posse style rather than in a line, which is... More

Our family had an amazing time! It was two adults and a three year old and did the 2 hour ride. Guides were great, horses were fun and view of the canyon amazing. Would do it again, if we ever get back to Amarillo.
