New Mexico horseback riding vacation with day to week-long horse adventures outside Albuquerque. 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 they ride 4-5 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 Spanish Conquistadors once rode through and Native Americans now sell their beautiful silver and turquoise jewelry. Mel and Justyn want to show you the rich landscape, southwest culture and unique cuisine that makes New Mexico unforgettable!
This mother and daughter team invites you to join a premier week. In October sign up for the Balloon Fiesta Ride, where you will experience the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta from the back of a horse.

Helping Unwanted Horses- A Core Mission
Enchantment Equitreks is an outfitter with a mission: to provide rescue horses with the support they need to find a forever home. While they are dedicated to delivering extraordinary experiences for their riding clients, they are also committed to healing the horse community. All of their ranch horses are originally from a rescue and have been expertly trained as experienced trail horses who love their job. Enchantment Equitreks continues to work with rescue horses through its special foster program.
The Foster Program concentrates on finding rescue horses a home. Often these horses have been surrendered due to the owners’ inability, financially or physically, to further care for their beloved companion. Thankfully there are places like Walking ‘N Circles Ranch (WNCR), The Horse Shelter, and horse rescues like them that are able to take in and care for such horses. Even though these shelters have many dedicated ranch hands to help with the day to day chores, there are always a growing number of horses who need to be ridden and trained. In their program, the fostered horses receive months of solid riding and training by their outfitters to keep them physically and mentally fit and better candidates for adoption. When you ride with Enchantment Equitreks, part of your fee goes to helping these rescued animals.
