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

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
