This was perfect! Even my really scared 9 year old had a great time and loved it! Fun to do even as a "local" bunch of city slickers.

Great private ride with Cameron. Mingled with two groups of wild horses, including some newborns! Saw some wildlife and learned about the area. What a great time at Wild Horse Pass!

Two seasoned riders looking for a great ride, found it here. The private ride guide, Ben was a super kind yet funny guide. Showed us where the wild horses are and got us real close. I won’t forget this experience.
