We had a great ride with our children. Stormstar was sweet and patient. The horses were nice but continuously ran into bushes and piñon trees to scratch. We didn't get much instruction, so this would be better for those with the experience of at least a couple of rides.

My wife booked a 2 hour ride with Storm Star simply because he said we could ride the horses at any pace we wanted which is what most trail rides will not allow. My wife and I are experienced riders and single file riding is mundane. Storm Star is a good trail boss pointing out wildlife and their tracks, fauna,... More

The horses were very gracious. The trail itself was snow covered and a little rocky. The scene beyond the trail was spectacular, mountains and big sky. The ride was slow. Our tour guide, Storm Star, was very quiet but very friendly and had a great sense of humor. We didn't see much wild life, a beautiful bluebird, a crow, a... More

Our 2 hour ride with Storm Star was exemplary! His people skills and sense of humor coupled with his riding skills saved the day (or 2 hours anyway). My friend was as a scared rabbit, though it was her idea and choice to go for 2 (two!) hours. So, the horses only only walked. Her fearful comments were constantly patiently... More

I went on a ride with Storm Star and myself only. He took my booking at short notice and was very flexible with time that I wanted to do the ride. I am an experienced but out of practice rider and he matched the ride and pace perfectly for me. We had a good chat about local wildlife and were... More

I went on a solo ride with Storm Star, the owner of Taos Indian Horse Ranch. It was by far one of the best trail rides I've been on! I'm an experienced rider, and I requested a more advanced ride. We trotted and loped (cantered) through the sagebrush and pinon trees, crossed the Lucero Rio, rode through cottonwood trees...all on... More

As stated by an earlier reviewer, we decided to use this vendor because it was run by local Indians. I did expect to hear some history or other information. The guide was very nice, but a man of few words. He did answer questions when asked however. The horses were good and both of us had riding experience, so not... More

We decided to do this trail ride because it is run by true local Indians on the reservation so we thought we would get some local history, but we were wrong. Although our guide was nice, he didn't speak to us unless we directly asked him something. We also got no instructions on how to ride - although I'm an... More

Great ride at the base of the mountains. Excellent, well-cared for horses. Knowledgeable guide. Ride is matched to skill of riders. If you are considering horseback riding while in Taos, this is the place.
