In the Vail Valley there are quite a few dinner places that take you up the mountain on an open air "sleigh" ride, but they are mostly pulled by snow cats, making a lot of noise and you are breathing in the exhaust fumes all the way there. Bearcat Stables offers real horse drawn sleigh rides and dinner in a... More

If this wasn't one of the planned activities during our trip, I wouldn't have thought about going. However, it was fun! The guide was very knowledgeable about the area during your 25 minute ride. You'll learn a lot about Colorado's history and about horses too. The food provided after was great! However, I'm not sure it was catered by our... More

Our family took the sleigh ride (no dinner) and it was great. We have little kids in our group (all under 5) and they loved it! The views were pretty and it was great to get some info about the area and the horses from the guide. I would definitely recommend this for families in the winter. Be sure to... More

The cabin was beautiful, set off the road and lit by Christmas lights and the roaring fire. Everyone was nice and friendly (except one of the two food servers who was brusque) but it seemed a better idea than the experience. We were two families with teen/preteens. The horse drawn sleigh hardly got out of sight of the cabin and... More

Had a wonderful evening here with our parents and two young children (4&7). The sleigh ride is mellow and is just long enough for young children. It doesn't go far from the ranch. The staff is very friendly and works well with all types of customers. The food, we found to be well prepared, hearty, and was liked by our... More

We were looking for a romantic and new thing to try on Christmas Eve in the Vail Valley. This is not an easy thing for us since I grew up in Vail in the late 60's, 70's & 80's. Bearcat Stables and our private One Horse Open Sleigh ride, however, was just the ticket!! Everyone was incredibly nice and our... More

Really nice farm in a small valley surrounded by people with too much money. Dinner was great, servers and staff very friendly. Sleigh ride could use some design but it was a real countryside horse drawn sleigh. God Bless Doc.

To celebrate our anniversary, my husband surprised me with one of my lifelong dreams.... riding in a jingle bell dressed sleigh through the snow. Afterward, we had a wonderful dinner in a cozy, historical cabin. Everyone was kind and extremely accommodating from the owner to the rest of his team. Although we went on a private sleigh ride, we observed... More

My wife and I purchased a Groupon for this ride and it was great. Nicole out guide was very friend and talkative give us information about the area and the history behind the ranch.

After reading other reviews, we decided on this stable over Breckenridge Stables. Our ride included my husband who was a bit nervous to get back on a horse after many years of not riding, our 19 year son who had NEVER ridden, our 12 year daughter & 16 year old son who've only ridden in a family-owned horse setting and...
