We learned about Windcross on a previous trip but had to wait due to overbooking of our time. Now we regret that choice. We have three very curious and intense children. To be honest, we were afraid about how they would do in this environment. The moment we watched Ms Lucia take the hand of our youngest I knew we were in good hands. Her calmness and love of those majestic animals seemed to transfer right thru that hand holding. We watched as the children touched, groomed and eventually rode on these wonderful animals that seemed to know a kindred spirit. We spent 30 days and visited six National Parks. These hours spent at Windcross were our most peaceful and connecting. We have since shared with everyone we know heading that way. We will be back and our youngest still remembers how to calm his pony brain as he was taught. :)
Went for a 45 minute tour. They were so nice and full of information we were there at least 3 hours. We were able to get right up to some of the horses. My favorite part of our vacation in South Dakota. This was also a holiday weekend so it was extra nice of them to take time and give us a tour!
My grandkids and I visited couple times, what a wonderful experience, the tour was very informative, the spanish mustangs are very well cared for, the family and volunteers are very friendly they are very passionate about their work, they went above and beyond during our visit
I loved this place. Loved walking out into the herd and learning all about the Spanish Mustangs. The horses are so well cared for and the employees and volunteers are so nice.
What a wonderful organization! The entire group gives their hearts and souls to the preservation of this great breed. I am thankful for all the work they continue to do!
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 had a wonderful visit to Windcross. Our guides were very knowledgeable and informative. My daughter was in horse heaven!

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.
