Was going to ride horses with my husband had paid the 100.00 for the 1 1/2 hour ride. When they approached and said they were not comfortable with putting me on one of their horses even one of the bigger ones. I stand five foot two and weight 260 lbs. I know I am fat but I thought horses could... More

The horses were sweet. The ride was decent (except that you hear the high way traffic for the majority of the ride). No water... all dried up. What I would really recommend is some more customer service skills. With the exception of Alyssa (who was pleasant and talked a little), we were barely spoken to for the majority of the... More

The people at the stable were very helpful. I haven't rode a horse in over 45 years. They picked a very nice horse for me and had steps so that I could get on. We first went an arena so they could check to see if I could control the horse. The ride through Cherry Creek park was great. I... More

I board at 12 Mile..... love it! Staff is great and caring. My horse loves it here. Not sure about comments made by others. Matt and the rest of the staff is always helpful and responsive. They set up dates for the Vet to come out and do shots and worming. That's great! I've seen them stay with other boarders... More

12 mile stables is a wonderful place to ride. I take lessons there and I adore it. All horses are safe and sweet. the trainers/trail ride leaders are kind as well and do very well on matching you up with the right horse. I would recommend doing the sunset ride. Be prepared to have your mind-blown.

We chose to go to this riding stable because it was the closest to our hotel. This stable also had something called the sunset ride, which we were intrigued by. It was $65 for the hour, which is the going rate out there. We had a really good guide named Chris, you go through a state park which is pretty... More

We had a good ride! The horses stop to eat a lot and it's hard to stop them....even though you are told at the beginning not to let them eat....good luck with that...but for me that has ridden before used it as an opportunity to make a large gap between horses....then I galloped to catch up.....fun for me....not so for...

The owner has cleaned up the facilities and grounds, torn down dilapidated buildings and seems to be attuned to customers

Under new ownership. This horseback trail was a perfect view of park and of the rocky mountains. Our guide was beyond helpful and had many stories about Colorado. She was very patient with we first time riders :) Can wait to revisit!

I took my two kids here (ages 7 and 10, and neither had ever been on a horse before) twice during the week we were visiting Denver. I have a little bit of riding experience, and figured I would be able to keep an eye on one of my girls, but was worried how to make sure both were safe... More
