Had a nice half day ride with Emmy & Chili. Experiencing a ride in the mountain terrain like this was incredible. From climbing up & rocky down climbs and several river crossing. Emmy was a great tour guide she even had great patience with me having a few altitude nausea set backs, we just too a few breaks. Don't forget... More

We did a half day ride with Buck's. It was well worth it, our wrangler Shawn and his faithful dog Chili took us out on a great ride. Awesome scenery to see and Shawn was kind enough to take pictures for us. We had a great time and would do this ride again!!!

We had our first horseback experience yesterday ... some very short 2 hours, even for absolute beginners. The weather was great, a sunny and warm morning, when we arrived everything was prepared. Location is beautifull, and Emmy very warm and gentle. So whoever wants to try horseback ... that´s the place to get started.

Had a great time. Arrived really cold on the motorcycle and Emmy and Shaun made us at home with a hot cup of coffee. Met Rusty the goat and Toni the llama. It was a short two hour ride but beautiful country and Emmy was very good and even took great pics for us. It was a celebration of our... More

When my wife, Ina, book this 'special' outing we both expected to somehow be stuck in a line. Well that did not happen. Emmy graciously allowed us to take the lead. As experienced english riders we had an absolute hoot trotting and cantering (or Loping in western terms) through the woods. Accompanied by a goat and dog and of course... More

As an experienced rider I was looking for a nice 2 hr ride - not a pony ride - Emmy and I hit the trails and it was so beautiful - she made my trip - thanks so much -

Having an equestrian in the family, who has her own horse, we were looking for a different trail ride experience. Saw Buck's across from Purgatory resort and looked them up online. Liked the variety of rides they offered and opted for their "special" 2 hour ride. This was a private ride based on out level of riding experience. Had Sean... More

My brother arranged this ride for our family of 5, and we had the best time ever! Our guide was enthusiastic and sweet, and the kids loved her. The San Juan National Forest is amazing, and the views are spectacular. Highly recommend this for an activity, and be sure to request Emmy... she rocks!

For all attractions in Durango, you really need to make reservations because activities fill up fast. My daughter had her heart set on a trail ride, but I didn't make a reservation in advance like I did with our other activities. Thankfully, they squeezed in a one hour trail ride for my daughter and my father on our last day... More

Everyone at Buck's Livery is fabulous, but I would like to single out our guide, Aaron. Aaron is the Superman of trail guides. He could jump off his horse at the speed of light and stomp on a snake or wrestle a bear to the ground if the safety of his trail riders was at stake. Not only that, Aaron... More
