Client Testimonials              

Dear Dean, Words cannot express the ride you took us on in the Mountains, August 16.  I have always enjoyed the mountains and a deep love for horses.  The professionalism in which you put the two together was unbelievable.

We were in the mountains, on the mountains and over the mountains.  We experienced Gods creation in majestic form in pristine conditions, making our group most grateful for what we were able to experience.

The trip was well planned, great horses, and equipment; providing us with a safe and gratifying experience.

To be able to take my eight year old grandson with us, instilling in him the appreciation of nature and what a wonderful world it really is was priceless.

Dean, I appreciate what you do and the way you go about doing it.

- Buzz from TX.
