What people are saying about Nevada

A wonderful experience. It was our first time horseback riding and the horses were well cared for, calm and relaxed. Our 6-year-old son wasn't afraid, everything was explained to him and us very well and the guide Colby was a very nice cowboy. Unfortunately it rained heavily during our ride and we were soaking wet and frozen through. Colby then drove us to a cabin nearby where we could wait for the taxi. Conclusion: We would do this tour again and again, but next time we would drive to the meeting point in our own car, since there is hardly any reception in the mountains to book a taxi or Uber.

Spectacular experience right outside Las Vegas. No problem of you have had no previous horse riding experience

Went with my 16 year old granddaughter. She loved the ride through the desert. No riding experience necessary.
