No matter the level of riding we do at The Hideout, we adopt a Natural Horsemanship Culture respecting our horses under all circumstances.

New Mexico Horse Adventures- Wild Horse Rides
Experience a rare opportunity to ride out among real wild horses and watch them in their natural habitat. This is not a ride out to a sanctuary, but a ride out to a real herd of truly wild horses in the rugged New Mexico landscape.
Your guide, Steve Simmons, has been tracking and photographing wild horses from horseback for many years (link to article) and his articles and images have been published numerous times. This group has been there for generations, and are truly experiencing the life of a wild horse. You may see stallions with their mares and foals, and groups of bachelor stallions scattered around the landscape. Rarely, but occasionally, you may see a battle between band leading stallion and a young upstart challenging the old stallion for his family.
These rides are only for experienced riders who can independently handle a horse in a rugged landscape under challenging conditions. There are not nose to tail rides. You can bring your own horse, or ride one of Steve’s experienced Morgans. Learn more about this ride and riding with Steve in Photographing the Free Roaming Horse and Morgan Horses for Trail Riding.
For more info call 505-301-0917 or go to New Mexico Horse Adventures or e-mail Steve.
