Enchantment Equitreks is the destination for adventurous equestrians who are looking for more than a nose-to-tail operation. Each day is a new adventure as you ride four to five hours exploring desert canyons, wading through river beds, climbing towering mountains, tracing the steps of cowboys, and looking out for ancient pottery shards. You will visit historical Santa Fe, where the Spanish conquistadors once rode through and Native Americans now sell their beautiful silver and turquoise jewelry. They want to show you the rich landscape, southwest culture, and unique cuisine that makes New Mexico unforgettable!
Your lodgings will be at quaint AirBNB just a short walk from the ranch house. The two-story house is nestled on a juniper and pine tree ridge overlooking the valley below. Decorated in a rustic and eclectic southwest style, it offers three bedrooms, two and a quarter baths, a shared kitchen, and a common room. Free WiFi and access to laundry service. The area is landscaped for relaxation. Wooded paths lead to reading nooks, hammocks for naps, meditation alcoves, and quiet spaces for yoga.
The hot tub is available year-round, and the pool is open during the summer. The property is teeming with vegetable gardens, fruit trees, and berry bushes just ripe for the picking. Bicycles are available for further exploration. The area is conveniently located close to golf courses, hiking and mountain biking trails, ski areas, and the river.
While Enchantment Equitreks is dedicated to providing you with an amazing experience, they are also committed to healing their horse community. All of the ranch horses are originally from a rescue and have been expertly re-trained as experienced trail horses. They continue their work with the rescues through their foster program.
Enjoy a three-hour adventure in the mountains and a relaxing picnic under the pines, day rides can be extended to a four-hour ride. Unlike many outfitters who ride in the same area, Enchantment Equitreks takes advantage of New Mexico's diverse landscapes and terrain by trailering out to a new trail each day. They load horses, tack, and picnic with clients, and drive 20-45 minutes to the riding destination.
Some days, you will be galloping through the sandy arroyos of a painted desert. The next day, you will scale alpine forests and Enchantment Equitreks loves to splash through the waters of the Rio Grande river. A typical riding day is two hours of riding, a picnic lunch break, and two hours of riding. Time in the saddle depends on weather and terrain.You do not camp out in these places but return back to the ranch where a hot shower, a hearty meal, and a soft bed awaits.
Safety is the number one priority. Enchantment Equitreks is not a nose-to-tail dude ranch but an equine adventure business. All of the horses have been trained in trail riding skills and manners; however, they do have a mind of their own. To thoroughly enjoy your stay, they require that your riding ability be at an intermediate level due to the terrain and lengths of the rides.
They ask all riders to be comfortable at a walk, posting trot, and strong canter on the trail within a group, as well as mount/dismount the horse unassisted. Riders do need to be physically fit enough to be in the saddle three to four hours a day. If you do not feel that you meet this criteria or do not ride regularly, but are still interested, they strongly suggest riding lessons. This will help you to be more confident and comfortable in the saddle. They will give riding tips and suggestions on trail to keep you safe, however, they do not give riding lessons.
While we are dedicated to providing you with an amazing experience, we are also committed to healing our horse community. All of our ranch horses are originally from a rescue and have been expertly re-trained as experienced trail horses. We continue our work with the rescues through our foster program.
We prescribe to a natural training method, a philosophy of working with horses based on the horse’s natural instincts and methods of communication, with the understanding that horses learn from pressure and the release of pressure. We believe that spending ample time with the horse to gain their trust is paramount in turning these animals around. Many of our horses come to the rescue not only with malnourished bodies but broken spirits. Our program concentrates on slowly rebuilding the horse physically and mentally through a relationship built on trust, respect, and understanding. Our core ranch horses have been through our training program and have blossomed into healthy and happy horses who love their job. The Foster Program allows us to reach even more animals who need a second chance, a little time, and a lot of compassion.
Our horses range from 14 -16.2 hands tall, 7-30 years old. The breeds range from Quarter Horse, Paints, Appaloosa, Thoroughbred, and grade.
You will join your hosts on a trip up to Iconic Santa Fe where you can visit local artisans, museums, shops, and the famous Cowgirls Restaurant.

This holiday will take place at Enchantment Equitreks, New Mexico, USA. This small ranch is nestled in the pines at the southern tip of the Rocky Mountains. New Mexico offers varied landscapes including deserts, mountains, and rivers. It is rich with cowboy culture, Spanish influence, Native American traditions, and outstanding cuisine.
All meals are included in the price. New Mexican cuisine is wholly unique, rich with local ingredients, slow-cooked meats, and spiced with roasted green and red chili. The meals not only showcase this local flavor, but the ingredients are plucked straight from Enchantment Equitreks' gardens, local farms, and ranches.
Each morning, you will be greeted with a European-style breakfast set out in the guesthouse or patio. Lunches will often be picnics during the day's ride. The evenings will be filled with sit down, family-style dinners, relaxing next to a fire and gazing out at the stars. They are able to accommodate many food restrictions and allergies for vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free menus.

With the Sandia Mountains looming above the valley and the river winding below, the hot air balloons have a perfect backdrop to fill the sky.

The afternoon will be spent amongst the wide variety of vendors with local foods and arts and crafts. Don't miss a unique way to experience this amazing event!
