We wanted to go horseback riding while in Durango and chose these guys because we prefer going to smaller family-owned businesses instead of bigger ones. Man, we hit the jackpot on this one ! They were the nicest people you could ever meet and they were a lot more affordable. You had to meet them on the side of the... More

We went with our three kids and niece and her boyfriend. We all had a blast on super mellow horses and felt totally safe. Our guide took lots of pictures of us at beautiful spots along the way. Highly recommend for newbies or families without much experience on horses!!

This place is hard to find--it truly IS a hole in the wall! But, "Cowboy Tom" and Ms. Stacie were terrific with my 6-year old grandson. We went all around the mountain trails, they stopped to take our picture with the scenic backgrounds, they explained what we were seeing and the history associated with it, then they fed us lunch...

We made a reservation for a two hour ride. First we had a little problem to find Tom but luckily he found us on the road and we really had a great time. It was just our Family ( two adults and a 7 year old girl) with Tom and his son. We are all beginning riders, but this was... More

This was definitely a local one of a kind experience. First of all, you have to call the owner to set up a time because there are no stables. You find him by looking for his vehicle parked off the road. His 30 or so horses run wild on the mountainside property and he has to round them up each... More

We called the stable on Thursday afternoon and booked a 2 hour ride for Friday morning at 10. He gave us directions to meet him, and quoted us a price of $60 each. We were looking forward to our ride the next morning. We drove the 10 miles north of Durango, but couldn't find the meeting place, so called to... More

As others recommended we called Tom to set up our trail ride. He met us at the road and drove us back to the stable because rainy weather had washed out the drive. The location could not have been better - beautiful serene scenery and so quiet and peaceful. Our group of three adult riders had next to no experience,... More

I called Tom 1 ½ months in advance to get information about his horseback riding experiences and the services they provided because I was from out of town and had read some good reviews. He sounded very rushed over the phone and informed me about the prices and told me to call back when I get close to the date... More

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
