Called on Sunday and booked a ride for that afternoon with kids ages 10,6, and 4. Tom and D were wonderful with the kids and us adults! Horses were gentle and loving, and looked happy to work! Ride was beautiful and guides were knowledgeable about the area, animals, plants, etc. They were extremely safe while giving kids confidence riding their... More

This was the ideal, slow ride for my 10 year old daughters who had limited horse riding experience. Tom and Ben were very attentive to the entire group (9 in total) and Ben took extra care to make sure my girls were comfortable and safe. The scenery is gorgeous with plenty of photo opps to make it a memorable occasion.... More

This ride offers families with little to no horseback riding experience a slow walking ride through very pretty scenery. Our guide, Ben, was very attentive to the young riders and did a great job organizing photo ops. This is not a ride for intermediate or experienced riders, just way too slow -- slowest walk ever experienced on a horse. It's... More

My husband, daughter (10), two sons (7 and 4), and I went on a two hour trail ride today with Tom and his ranch hand, Ben. I searched high and low to find a stable that would allow a four-year-old to ride a horse on a trail, and Hole in the Wall Stables was the only place in Durango (and... More

Tom led our party of 5 on a one-hour ride through absolutely beautiful countryside. Tom was great with the kids, a 6 year old and a 9 year old who had never ridden before, and we all emerged with smiles on our faces. We would have loved to have gone for the extra hour.

Chose this due to trip advisor ratings and were they correct. Had a bit of difficulty contacting Tom, the owner/operator because the phone number on trip advisor is wrong, but if you go to his website from the ta link, the correct number is there. Email does not work. Seems Mrs. Tom set up website and she is no longer... More

We came to Durango on our honeymoon and decided to give horseback riding a shot. We originally chose to go with hole in the wall because it seemed like the most bang for your buck, being $55 for two hours. After our ride I am so glad we chose them! Neither of us had any horseback riding experience. Ben and... More

Just returned from a fabulous riding trip with Ben & Dylan. FYI, my son and I are 'greenhorns' with little to no horseback riding experience and we were introduced to Bulls-Eye and Bo, two docile horses. We saddled up and were taken through some absolutely gorgeous trails by lakes and majestic cliff- views. Out two tour guides were friendly and... More

We had a private tour near the end of the season. they didn't take the full two hours because the wrangler had a second job, but they gave us a discount, so I feel like we were made whole. They advertise the best views in Colorado, but there is only one part where you go up by a cliff and... More

My family and I, who have virtually no equestrian experience, took a two hour ride on August 7, 2013. Dillon and Ben, who work for the stables, were very patient and guided us through the initial mounting of the horses and subsequent ride. The ride itself was fantastic, winding through beautiful ponderosa pine forests and along multiple lakes. It was... More
