We met Kathleen and the horses near Borrego Springs for a ride through beautiful Box Canyon, enjoying the flowers and the peace. The horses are beautifully trained and responsive, even though we were pretty rusty. Kathleen is a great travelling companion. A wonderful memory-maker!

Kathleen set up a ride for my son and I in the Santa Ysabel Wilderness Preserve that was absolutely stunning. The horses were perfect, we enjoyed getting to know Kathleen and most of all, we had a fantastic time enjoying the natural beauty around us.
