Grindstone Stables Reviews & Ratings
What an amazing experience!!! The views are simply breathtaking. Please do not waste your time anywhere else!! Keven Kennedy, the owner, was a wonderful host. He welcomed us like family. The horses were gentle and the cowboys and cowgirls were all outgoing and extremely helpful. My family and I truly enjoyed our time at Grindstone Stables. We will be very back soon!
My husband and I had an amazing morning ride! All the staff were so friendly as well. The guides were super helpful keeping the horses in task. (Lily loved to stop and eat) All the horses were well behaved and most were even raised from a baby! The views of the mountains were also pretty amazing, too. All together I would 110% recommend doing this whether you live or you’re just visiting Ruidoso!
Absolutely the best experience you can have if you haven't been on a horse yet. Gorgeous horses that are well taken care of and are very easy to ride. All had names and I got dusty who was a great calm rider. The wrangler's are very welcoming and are always making sure you are having a good time and feel comfortable while answering questions people ask and have nothing but true southwest country hospitality along the way. The trail along the way up has beautiful views of the area and the scenery is amazing. Knowing you are riding right in the middle of Billy the kid country, especially for me since I am a Billy/history buff added a lot more intrigue to the experience as well. All together between the people working there and the experience itself this is a must do, once in a lifetime experience and I highly recommend grindstone to anyone. Great location!!!!
I wouldn't change a thing. It didn't seem like anybody had a bad horse. The length of the ride was just right. The staff was super friendly and appeared to run a well organized operation.
Beautiful view, friendly people, and sweet horses. My family had a wonderful time. "Pedro" was great as well!
