GRAB YOUR SOMBRERO and join us for a glimpse of traditional ranch life little changed since early Spanish settlement!  Let experienced guides take you into the spectacular mountains of OLD CALIFORNIA. Riding through colorful cactus garden valleys and into lush palm springs you’ll meet some of the wonderful local folks of the remote ranches of Baja.

Visit the renowned World Heritage Rock Art sites and famous roadless ranches, near the village of San Ignacio in the heart of the peninsula.

Since 1988 we’ve been running great trips for small groups in the outback desert - unique journeys into the heart of the sierra and its historical ranch culture. For nearly 300 years the only way to travel these mountains had been on horseback. It’s still the best!

Saddling Trip Dates - Most dates listed include fly-in and fly-out days.

Those listed as Locals Special ( or LS ) do not include travel days. Any trip below noted as a 4 or 5 or 6 day tour are actual days on the trail... no arrival/dparture or travel to trailhead days are included.

Best Pricing for Pack Trips - the Locals Special - $135 - $180 per Riding Day 
Trudi offers special rates for locals who live in Baja and for travelers who are already comfortable making their own pre-trip arrangements. If you are driving or busing down the peninsula to the San Ignacio area for one of the rock art trips, or if you fly to Loreto and can bus, drive, or caravan with others to the trail head prior to the actual riding days then you may be eligible for our special rate for "locals". In addition to the $135-$180 per riding day, the extra expenses of travel to the trail head may be as low as $200 - $300 for travel and lodging.
