We went on a 3-hour backcountry ride with Becky. The group was small enough that we could chat with others on the ride and Becky shared a lot of information about the area and plants. The trail was gorgeous and the horses were all healthy and well-cared for. Sometimes on these trail rides it's very boring and more like a... More

This was a wonderful 90 minute horseback ride. Not a commercial "let's throw 15 people together and take a walk around the park". The horses were laid back and the trails with mountain views were incredible. The groups are kept to a max of 8, and that is important. Our two daughters loved the ride as well. A shout out... More

We had a 1/2 day backcountry trail with Becky as our guide. It was a great trail with awesome scenery of Vail-area of Colorado. Nice not to be nose to tail and some loping areas. You don't realize how high up "you" climbed, until you're back down and look up to where you've been. There's been mention about a cliff,... More

Casey was an amazing wrangler! He chatted with our son on the entire ride and never seemed to be bothered by the stories or questions for the entire BEAUTIFUL 1 hour and 30 minute ride. It was truly the best riding experience we have ever been on.

We had a blast at their Tuesday night riding/ dinner. My 5 year-old said it was better than Disney because she got to ride a real horse :) Food was great, drinks were great and my 7 year old had a great time on her first real ride. Everyone was friendly. Great family night in CO! Thank you!!!!

Just wanted to send a personal thank you for a wonderful time I had at the stables. The horseback ride was exactly what I expected - beautiful scenery, wildlife and just so serene. Nicole was a terrific guide and with knowledge of the area and its history. I cannot thank you all for making my short vacation so memorable. The... More

Bearcat Stables offers a taste of the old west - high-country horseback riding across spectacular countryside. The friendly crew did a Great job of getting the family (mostly novice riders) saddled up and on the trail. The ride never leaves a slow-paced walk, but is a nice break from the ordinary. Definitely recommended for a family outing in Vail.

What a blast! At first I was worried about 9 year old because this was her first real trail ride and my 13 year old wasn't keen on going. But our guide Nicole put them at ease immediately and we had a wonderful 1 1/2 ride! We saw mule deer, elk, tons of birds and amazing views. This was well... More

I visited the Bearcat Stable in March of 2014 with my family of four and the visit was very over rated from the previous reviews. We took a horse drawn sled ride and this consisted of the horses pulling the sled around the cabin where dinner was served. We never got more than 75 yards from the cabin. For the... More

The Evening was truly unique, we started off by being P/U right on time in front of our Hotel by the owner himself. A short ride 10-15 minutes on snow covered roads we arrived at the cabin set back in the woods away from all the hustle and bustle. Went into the cabin purchased a few glasses of wine for... More
