Nice ride and lunch

Great views, nice horses - it isn't really possible to trot/gallop with the horses for safety reasons, but the ride was nice. Good guide. The free lunch afterwards was also good.

Great time with family. Ride was fun side by side rather than the usual trail. Much of the ride was off the trail. Gorgeous scenery. Ask for wranglers Kevin and Amber. Very pleasant experience

I went with my family this past weekend to the ranch and it was GORGEOUS. The people were very nice, the check in procedure was very easy and they were super understanding of my little knowledge of horseback riding! Our wrangler, Sara, was way too amazing. She made us laugh and we had the greatest time on our 2 hour... More

We had a wonderful two hour ride with our wrangler Sarah. The ride itself was fabulous, but Sarah made it extra special for us. Our horses were well behaved, but not lethargic. They seemed to be enjoying the ride as much as we did.

I WOULD NOT recommend this stable for anyone not comfortable on a horse, and very, very strongly discourage riding here for anyone uncomfortable around horses or nervous about riding. See below. I'll start with the good: -Our wrangler, Doug(?) from Alaska, was great. He kept a watchful eye on the whole group and shared interesting stories and tidbits throughout the... More

My family and I vacationed in Breckenridge this past week and while we were there we wanted to enjoy a horseback ride. This trip ended up being more than enjoyable as it isn't the standard nose to tail trip up the mountain. The wide open views are amazing and having the freedom to ride your horse is refreshing.

Beware: bad business practices; borderline false advertising. “Highway robbery” would not be too inaccurate to describe this outfit. Multiple layers of false pretenses. For starters, the company “South Park ATV” promotes a website showing ATV’ers in a deeply wooded and mountainous area, fording a shallow stream. This is NOT what you will do. South Park ATV will immediately sub out... More

Yes, the owner is a little abrupt but the ranch hands are all great hardworking people so they make up for it. We booked a 2 hour morning ride and were 15 minutes late. (My fault) We called to let them know and the owner huffed at us a bit but that was all. We were hurried to the staging... More

What a great experience. Thank you so much. Sara made the ride so enjoyable and made sure our ride was a memorable one. She also took time to take pictures for us and made sure our girls enjoyed every bit of our day
