We had a half day of riding that was a full four hours. Our guide, Luke was accommodating and kind. The horses were very well trained and well mannered. The scenery was spectacular and it was a good value for what we paid. We all had a great time.

We have ridden with Capitol Peak three times. We just did an all day ride to Capital Peak with them. Jose our wrangler was great. Nice guy, informative, and clearly knew what he was doing. The country they ride through is spectacular. The all day ride is a little long, but getting to the base of Capitol Peak made it... More

My family went on the half-day ride out into Maroon Bells and were blown-away with the beauty if the snow-capped mountains even in July. Our horses were pretty well-behaved, though a few times we had to pull them back in line, but we all would do the ride again in a heartbeat!

I went on the 1/2 day Capitol Peak ride and it was nothing short of stunning! I hadn't ridden a horse before so I wasn't totally sure what I was in for. The horses are very well trained and were a great fit for me since I was inexperienced. The guide, Sarah, was sweet, knowledgeable, and funny. The scenery was... More

We had a group of 10 for a 2 hour ride. Scenery was terriffic, horses were great, and the ride was fantastic. Wes and Luke, our guides were friendly, knowlegeable, and professional. Contrary to an earlier review, we found John, the owner, to be very friendly and courteous. I would highly recommend this to anybody, to include families. It was... More

I went on a guided elk hunt with John and his guys and they exceeded my expectations by far. John is the owner/operator and for a guy who I expected to see little of due to owners schedules he was with us the entire trip on the mountain. All of the guides and wranglers were top notch and new every... More

First let's start with the good: our guide Kyler (or Tyler) was great! He was so helpful & enjoyable! Horses were also great! The bad: John the owner was rude on the phone & has terrible customer service. They need to provide water for all tours no matter the length of the tour. John did not tell our group to... More

Went with spouse and cousin on 1/2 day trail ride - a glorious day, wildflowers in full bloom, skies totally blue with the right dose of puffy clouds. Our guide, Jose, a Glenwood local, was thoughtful and attentive to our group of 6 (a dad and two daughters, along with our threesome). Horses steady, smart and well-behaved, just right for... More

I made my reservation with John for my families' 2 hour horseback riding trip. The horses were brought to Basalt in a trailer, and we met our guides at an arranged meeting spot. From there, we followed the guides (and the trailer) up the mountain. The horses were unloaded and off we went! Our guide, Tyler and Brandon, were professional,... More
