Our Wranglers

Santa Fe Trail Riding, Bishop's Lodge Stables

Hospitality is central to all of our offerings and our wranglers seek to welcome you, entertain you and create a lifelong memory for you during your ride.  Sharing stories about the rich history of the Bishop’s Lodge as well as Santa Fe you may find it hard to distinguish between a “tall tale”, a local legend and the fascinating true stories that are so abundant in this ancient land.

Alonso | Lead Wrangler

As lead Wrangler – Alonso can only be described as a true Gentleman.  Welcoming and genuinely interested in all who grace his daily path – we know our guests will be well cared for while on their trek through the forest with Alonso.   A gentle soul, his rapport with horses and people alike is unique and appreciated.  Tell a story, ask a question and enjoy the journey while Alonso is out on trail with you.  Your day will be enriched as you meander through the 314 acres and many miles of National Forest trails surrounding the Bishop’s Lodge.

With a special ability to make people feel appreciated, AJ  takes a personal interest in every person who rides.  Each guest’s comfort, ease and enjoyment on trail is important to AJ.  You will rarely meet a young man more genuinely interested in hearing a bit about you and your journey.  A true people person AJ sets our guests at ease and gently leads them on the unlimited trails around the ranch while sharing about the rich history of this place.   He leaves people feeling cared for as he listens to their stories and shares a couple of his own along the way.
