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.

C Lazy U- 3-night Women’s Retreat with Cowgirl Yogini Cathy Woods May 11- 14, 2017
RATE: $385 per person per night plus tax and service charge.
What do you get when you combine a Yogini, horses and a world class ranch? You get a renewing, fun, awareness journey through yoga and horses.
Body, Mind, Equine™ is not really about “doing yoga postures on the back of your horse,” though we do a few stretches in the saddle. The program is about how to use yoga & yogic principles to improve your horsemanship from ground to saddle. Note:Cathy Woods does not claim to be a horse trainer or riding instructor; her goal is to assist students in becoming more aware, conscious riders.
This all-inclusive fun and educational program combines “body and breathing awareness” with “energy and present moment awareness”. Much of these skills can be applied to all areas of life! In this retreat you will greet the day with a gentle morning yoga class including good stretches for riders, followed by workshops on meditation, breath-work and exploring the parallels of yoga and horsemanship. Time is spent on the mat, ground work and energy exercises in the arena with horses, saddle time and of course trail rides!
All levels of yogis and riders welcome, including beginners.
