Close your eyes and imagine stepping back into the Old West. A time when life may not have been easy, but livin’ was simple. Cowboys, Native Indians, lawmen and gunmen, pioneers and prospectors, gamblers and outlaws roamed. It was a time when your horse was an extension of yourself and without him, you couldn’t accomplish daily tasks. Riding through the lands, your backdrop was an magnificent open sky and ancient settlements. Nature's wonder was filling your unobstructed eyes and thirsty soul.
Adventure on the Santa Ana Pueblo awaits.
When you arrive to the stables, your horse will be saddled and waiting patiently, ready to serve as your time machine for the day. With expert wranglers guiding you, let one of the Horses of Tamaya help you recall a deeper wisdom and taste of how life was then and could be now. Your transformation will begin as you mount up and ride off into the Santa Ana Pueblo of New Mexico.
Before hitching up and heading out though, safety first. There are a few “Rules of the Ride” we need you to understand and review. Our wranglers want this ride to be every bit the adventure and life changing experience you deserve and more! Make sure you prepare and plan for this transformative excursion.

RULES OF THE RIDE
Listen to Your Wranglers
Your wrangler's job is to create a safe, exciting, and memorable experience. It is important that you follow his/her guidance as they take the responsibility and honor to lead you on the ride seriously. Please listen up and follow through so that everyone will return home from the ride safely.
Physical Fitness & Confidence
We are going to ask you a few personal questions when you sign up. This is so that we can set you up with the right horse and pace. You can choose a ride that makes sense for your fitness and confidence. Private Rides are offered to customize the experience around your level and interest, contact us to learn more. Whether it's a lead arounds to adventure lopping rides, we can offer an experience you desire within our judgment and reason. It is important we know the truest depiction of your ability and readiness to make sure we host an awesome ride for you.
Never Pass Head Wrangler
On our rides, we want you to feel the open plains and grow confident in your saddle; however, as you spread out and ride openly, please do not pass your Head Wrangler. The lead of the ride must always stay in front unless otherwise instructed. While we may start off or end single file, we encourage you to ride outside the lines and not feel restricted to ride head to toe, as long it is behind the Head Wrangler.
Phones, Gear, & Loving Care
While you may feel like a cowboy from Old Western Times, you likely still have a cell phone. Do yourself and others a favor by keeping in your pocket reserved for photo opportunities for which your wrangler will make stops. Wearing long pants, closed toed, comfortable shoes, and possibly extra layers is highly recommended. Sunscreen and hats are the best way to protect your skin from the elements, and feel free to knot your favorite bandana for the full outlaw effect. Simple but necessary reminder: horses are not machines. This means that we need to treat them as compassionately and lovingly as possible. Move slowly and easy around them so they have time to sense you. Approach and interact with the horses in a gentle, friendly manner. Please do not be afraid to seek guidance from your wrangler as you get to know your horse.
From the team at The Stables of Tamaya, we wish you a fun and safe ride!
