Beautiful scenery, quiet ride

We enjoyed our 2 hour ride in conjunction with our rafting trip with Echo Canyon. It doesn't look like much, so be prepared. Our guide was a sweet girl and she answered... read more

This was the worst experience I have ever had horseback riding. Although I have a decent amount of experience riding, I wouldn't recommend this for even the most beginner riders. I could have taken a nap on my horse and made it back safely (great for small children), but it makes sitting in the same spot moving at the same... More

Our family did the one hour trail ride when we were visiting family in CO and had a great time! Our children (ages 10 and 13) both loved the horse-back riding and our guide, Amanda was so awesome! We highly recommend this trip if you're in the area- and ask for Amanda!

This stables sucks. Don't ever go here. Me and my spouse went for the sunset horse back riding and the horses wouldn't even move. There was also another family who rode with us. The horses were very stubborn, they stopped for every 2 minutes to either eat grass or they would move backwards (in the opposite direction) we were supposed... More

My daughter was a little uneasy at first when we took off and her horse got out of line. The guide reassured her & told her what to do.

I had horses years ago as did my husband. It has been about 30 years since I have ridden and 40 for him. I really love horses and he chose to go on this ride because I went with him on ATVs and helicopter ride. We actually planned to start back to Texas today but chose to stay and ride.... More

We took my son for his very first horseback riding experience and were glad we chose this place for the occasion. My husband and I both have some experience riding and a great love of horses. The horses here are well behaved and safe for all ages. I'm happy to say that after this gorgeous scenic horseback ride our son... More

We enjoyed our 2 hour ride in conjunction with our rafting trip with Echo Canyon. It doesn't look like much, so be prepared. Our guide was a sweet girl and she answered questions when asked, but otherwise just kept an eye on us as our horses obediently followed her lead. Our 7 year old son got to ride his own... More

We arrived for an 11:00 ride which we had scheduled the day before. There was no record in their books of the reservation. Manager said it was no problem and that we could still ride, but we would have to wait for the horses to come back from the 9:00 ride. So, we waited until 11:30 and then could not... More
