What a beautiful ranch, friendly crew and great horseback ride! Amy, Trigger, Wendy, Jackie & Mike were so helpful and attentive to everyone's needs. The Rocky Mountain vistas are unbelievable. We would recommend this as a "must" on anyone's Colorado to-do list!

Beautiful setting for a morning ride! The scenery, the horses, crossing the creek, up the hills thru the woods and the plateau surrounded by the majestic mountains made for a perfect Colorado experience! I was so fortunate that my friends from Fairplay knew all the guides, they were all so friendly and helpful to all of us, the ride was... More

This is our third ride at the Platte Ranch. What a wonderful place. My sister was riding for the first time and Shawn could not have been more attentive. We had very different riding abilities in our small group and they paired up the horses for us in a safe yet challenging way. Great place.

We took the whole family (7 adults) and our 5 and 8 yr old grand daughters on a 2 1/2 hr ride in scenic South Park, Colorado. Beautiful views of the Mosquito and Collegiate ranges. Horses for all abilities. The staff, Amy, Sean, Tigger, and Mike were terrific. They were very helpful with the kids and patient with the adults.... More

The wranglers place you with a horse that fits your skill and comfort level. The 2 hour ride was perfect and we were able to canter the horses! Much more fun that a typical nose- to- taill trail ride

Took our 11 and 15-year old grandchildren for a ride while visiting in Breckenridge. The staff was great and of course the scenery beautiful. Horses were fine--like all 'ranch' horses' that are pretty much programmed to do what they do. We enjoyed our day, but our grandson, who had been to a Dude Ranch with me the previous summer thought... More

Our family really enjoyed horseback riding in the mountains; our grouped ranged in age from 11 to 70's all of us had virtually no riding experience. Alphabet and staff were very attentive to be sure the horse matched the rider. The ride was quite varied in type of trail and also gave the opportunity for riding in an open area.... More

I've done a half-dozen of these trail rides, and this was by far the best. Unparalleled scenery, beautiful horses, friendly, informative staff. You'll cross the South Platte River, climb through spruce groves, traverse broad meadows and end up on a wide grassy plateau surrounded by distant, snow-capped mountains. You can't beat it! The guides are first-rate, and of course you'll... More

BEAUTIFUL! Words cannot describe the wonderful riding trip. It was a small group and there was plenty of room to roam around. Horses were very well behaved.
