Enchantment Equitreks' two-storey guesthouse is nestled on a juniper and pine tree ridge overlooking the valley below. Decorated in a rustic and eclectic southwest style, the guesthouse offers three bedrooms, two and a quarter bath, a shared kitchen, and a common room filled with books and games. The guest house is environmentally conscious designed with composting toilets, greywater systems, and re-purposed furnishings. It also offers free Wi-Fi and access to laundry service.

The guesthouse 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. Throughout the property are vegetable gardens, fruit trees, and berry bushes just ripe for the picking. Bicycles are available for further exploration. The building is minutes away from golf courses, hiking and mountain biking trails, ski areas, and the river.

Program

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, picnic, and clients and drive 20 to 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 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 will not camp out in these places, but return back to the ranch where a hot shower, a hearty meal, and a soft bed awaits.

Rodeo

Rodeo De Santa Fe, one of the oldest rodeos in the southwest, is located just minutes from the historical Santa Fe Plaza. It’s an annual stop on the rodeo circuit for many of the best contenders from the nation.

The New Mexico State Fair & Rodeo combines an appreciation for agriculture, highlights local artists, and presents the biggest rodeo in the state. This event offers a variety of exhibits featuring livestock, gardening (such as the 110lb pumpkin), horse shows including, western, English, and driving, arts and crafts.

Daily shows include Flamenco and Indian dancers. Also this rodeo is one of the last stops for athletes from all over the world to qualify for the National Finals Rodeo.

Skill levels

To thoroughly enjoy your stay, Enchantment Equitreks suggests that your riding ability is at an intermediate level due to the terrain and lengths of the rides. However, a strong novice rider could be accommodated for short rides, such as husbands who will be riding one day and golfing the other three. Sometimes, Enchantment Equitreks is willing to waive the 200-pound limit for a tall, experienced rider who is capable of riding light on the horse's back. Children must be 15 years of age and have riding knowledge and experience.

Novice

A rider who is capable of mounting and dismounting unassisted, capable of applying basic aids, comfortable and in control at the walk, moderate length posting trots, and short canters

Intermediate

A rider who has a firm seat, is confident and in control at all paces (including posting trots, two point canters, and gallops), but does not ride regularly.
