Corrales: Horse Capital of New Mexico Professional Review and Guide

"Follow the main street and back roads around the village of Corrales for a display of eclectic architecture from the past and present. Often you can identify an architectural style by the roof alone. Red tiles suggest Spanish Revival. Rounded corners are indicative of the Pueblo style. Flat roofs with stepped parapets and exposed vigas (ceiling beams) indicate Spanish-Pueblo Revival, more popularly known as Santa Fe style, which in turn developed into a craze for incorporating
multiple styles into a single structure for no apparent reason. You’ll find numerous examples of that on homes here.

Corrales also has a long history as home to horses of all breeds, along with ample equestrian facilities, which include ditch banks, the Bosque Preserve, and the Top Form Arena. The Village of Corrales officially proclaimed itself the Horse Capital of New Mexico in 2011. You’re likely to encounter a horse or two on the trails here, so be sure to review equine etiquette before setting out on this walk. (In short: Always yield to equestrians.)"
