GRAB YOUR SOMBRERO and join us for a glimpse of traditional ranch life little changed since early Spanish settlement!  Let experienced guides take you into the spectacular mountains of OLD CALIFORNIA. Riding through colorful cactus garden valleys and into lush palm springs you’ll meet some of the wonderful local folks of the remote ranches of Baja.

Visit the renowned World Heritage Rock Art sites and famous roadless ranches, near the village of San Ignacio in the heart of the peninsula.

Since 1988 we’ve been running great trips for small groups in the outback desert - unique journeys into the heart of the sierra and its historical ranch culture. For nearly 300 years the only way to travel these mountains had been on horseback. It’s still the best!

NEW INFORMATION FOR 2020

Saddling Trip Dates - For those of you returning to our web site, Welcome Back! Please note that as of 2018 all itineraries will list only Riding Days. We will no longer offer a Full-Package itinerary. We have pages posted with very helpful information on how to travel to a trail-head, a DIY list of possibilities, and also names of other companies offering fully catered tours if you prefer. We can make a custom tour with all meals, ground travel, hotels, etc included... ask us.

Meals - This coming season we will provide you with a great breakfasts and dinners prepared by our staff. For Lunches it will be BYO. Our lunch ideas list is included in your trip confirmation packet upon sign-up.

Pricing - Because we are asking folks to take the reins to get themselves to the trailheads and no longer including hotels or ground transportation we are charging for just the actual trail days. We can help you arrange with other folks on tour to drive or taxi to San Ignacio or the trail head too. That often happens just a couple of weeks prior to the trip dates.

Hope to see you soon on a Baja trail !
