These folks make a fine effort. But in comparison to other sleigh/ride dinners we have been on, most notably last year at Steamboat Springs, this is a far cry. For $50 per head, we got a 10-minute ride in a wheeled trailer (not enough snow for a sleigh), an average dinner of tilapia for my wife and prime rib for... More

We took a 2 hr. trail ride with Gary (the owner) up and around the mountainside. Bring bottled water you will have a saddlebag on one of the horses. 2 hours was about 30min. too long in my opinion, my buttocks agreed with that opinion the next day! So, I recommend an hour ride. No experience is necessary. We will... More

Words won't do Mr. & Mrs. Bramwell's ranch justice. Spend a beautiful day exploring the rocky mountains with an excellent guide on horseback. You can choose a one or two hour tour. We did the one hour and I sure wish we had done the two. Spectacular views and inevitable laughs as you spend a great afternoon with your family.... More

The 1 hour horseback ride was on a trail cut right into the mountains. Each of member of our party was fitted with a beautiful horse and our guide, Gary, was very friendly and funny. The view was spectacular and would definitely recommend the ride to anyone. We also participated in the horse-drawn wagon and bonfire/BBQ. The food was good... More

I have been with two trail ride outfitters in Pagosa Springs and Astraddle A Saddle is the best. The trail ride is pure Colorado- forests and meadows surrounded by majestic mountains. The horses are very calm and the guides safe and knowledgeable. My 8 year old and I have gone with them for the last two years and we love... More

What a con . $35 for a 5 minute wagon ride to be given cold pre cooked food. Then to sit around a camp fire that wasn't lit and to listen to. A couple of geriatric blue grass singers, it was dire the food was worth $5 on a good day and the entertainment was the worst I have ever... More

3 minute haywain ride. No campfire. Cold food and enforced jollity. Rip off for $35. Totally overpriced and rubbish

Over priced and not a good value. Must be one of Dante's levels that we were with a group that all knew each other and made this an annual trip. We were stuffed in the overheated loft of the cabin for a very mediocre dinner

Never been on a horse at 61 years old but wanted to all my life. Scared to death when I finally got on. Wish that they could have given us a little more coaching before they set us off to relieve some of the anxiety. Was told that it was an easy ride but be warned that this is not... More

Good ride, but you have to duck under tree branches on the very worn trail. Part of the time there is a drop off on one side. The horses kept biting each other's rumps which caused them to stop and kind of kick. Conveniently located near Pagosa Springs.
