Ride, Explore & Observe Wild Mustangs

We are offering a great opportunity for guests to spend two nights in a room at the Old House Bed & Breakfast at the Hot Springs. You can either camp in a tent at Benton or have a room at the Old House. The last two nights we’ll all camp in tents at our wilderness style camp in Pizona.

Private horses and mules are welcome and we set up individual pens for those bringing their own animals. All vehicles and trailers are left at Benton when we head to our camp in Pizona.

All riding is at a walk and we take pack animals along for extra water, camera equipment and personal items.

Bed and Breakfast Courtyard

Check in time after 3 pm at the Old House at Benton Hot Springs. We will have dinner at 6:30 pm and plenty of time to explore the historic buildings and mining town of Benton. (Guests that want to arrive Saturday are welcome to join the trip Saturday morning).

Saturday: Leisurely ride to an overlook in the Benton Range. Plenty of time to tour the ghost town and cattle and buffalo ranch. Evening music and lecture on the history of the mining area and wild horse population.

Sunday: We break camp and ride from Benton Hot Springs over the Benton Range into Adobe Valley with spectacular views of the White Mountains and Sierra Nevada. Good opportunity to see wild horses that water at Black Lake.

Monday: Ride out early to visit the Pizona high country. We ride through the meadows past Upper Pizona Springs to McNamara Lake and McBride Flats looking for fresh horse tracks. We’ll track horses and look at the new foals in the herd. It will be a full day in the field; we break the trip into groups to allow the more limited riders the opportunity to head back to camp early.

Tuesday: The ride will head back through the hills overlooking Upper Adobe Valley and terminate at River Springs. A van will take guests to Old Benton Hot Springs to your cars, about 3 P.M.
