New Mexico Horse Adventures

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 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.

Fall at Siwash beckons to travelers who are free to savour the season when the ranch is adult-oriented.

Frontier accommodations amidst nature feature ranch house suites, a charming barn loft, or luxury canvas cabins—lavish safari tents on the Ridge at Siwash offering exquisite views of the surrounding wilderness.

Over this four day trip on 50,000 acres, you’ll ride as far as you can see to gather up the cattle, drive them back to the corrals, sort the mother cows and calves, brand, inoculate, and doctor the young males. You’ll feel like a real cowhand riding out for different herds – long horns one day, then cows and we may even go out for some bucking horses before heading back to the ranch. We’ll round out the week with a ride to the Canadian Boarder -smooth beautiful country along Lake Koocanusa, to Stryker Peak or Krinklehorn territories - mountainous rides with steep climbs.

Prices for Double Occupancy range from $2,295.00 to $2,820 per person depending on the room you choose. Please call the ranch (866-828-2900) and ask for more details and our suggested clothing and equipment list.
