I had an amazing experience last month with Windcross. Took a tour among the herd and got to help get two of the younger horses used to human contact. Would definitely recommend to horse-y and non-horse-y people alike.

Just left Windcross Conservancy which is working to save the Spanish Mustang breed. What beautiful horses! This tour was fun, personal and educational. We highly recommend this tour and the important work of this conservancy. Thank you for a great experience.

I took my son here last month and we both absolutely LOVED it! The staff was really friendly, their tours were very informative, and most of all my son was one happy little boy after our trip! I was a little worried about taking him around the animals at his age (3), but any reservations I had previously completely disappeared by the end of the tour. They ran a very safe, yet interactive tour. I was entirely pleased with my visit at windcross and will be returning!

We love to share the horses, especially with young people. They are the future of horses in general and these horse in particular. :)

My wife , daughter and I visited June 17th 2015. We had a great experience. It was very informative and awesome to get hands on with these beautiful horses. I wish we could have spent more time there. They are a veteran friendly establishment also. We, ( my family), all agree that it was a highlight of our vacation.
