Everything is wrong w/Roudy unless you too are an insensitive, mysoginistic, narcissist. I have never been treated so mean in all my travels around the world. I actually cried the first 30 minutes of the ride after his inapporpriate comments. Additionally we had to listen to him self promote the entire ride. We have been riding in Colorado for the... More

There's nothing wrong w/ Roudy unless you are the sensitive east coast type :) (somewhat ironically, he does have a masters degree in English). Realize, though, this is the West, rural Colorado, ranch country. Don't expect to be coddled. Do expect to hear a lot of ranch wisdom and interesting stories! My 10 yr old daughter and I had a...

Roudy and his girls did a wonderful job with a group of different riding abilities. This is a traditional trail ride, however the scenery that you see is incredible! You can't go wrong. The horses are well cared for and very good with beginner riders. Roudy is a hoot and has a ton of stories from the area! Great little... More

We had a great ride with Roudy and his staff. It was a group of 5 of us and though we weren't ready for Roudy's entertainment, it came across as funny and well entertaining. We took the hour ride for $50 and each gave them a $10 tip. Totally worth it. I rode Clyde a huge beautiful horse who took... More

Roudy taught me to ride when I was a kid, and it was a pleasure to come back 20 years later to ride with him again. Our morning group ride was an absolute pleasure - Roudy and his ranch hand were super friendly, experienced, and kept up great banter with us as we rode through his beautiful property. We stopped...

Roudy was verbally abusing his employees when we arrived, but really crossed the line when he humiliated my seven year old son in front of the entire group of riders because he was nervous about getting on the horse. Roudy first yelled at my son for not being tough enough, and then yelled at his employees for not screening the... More

We have ridden with Roudy twice, and it's always a treat. We'll return on every trip to Telluride. Roudy is a marketing genius and a genuine character: He's a local legend. Don't miss meeting him. He has a great track record of safety because he is so careful about taking care of his horses and his clients. If you want... More

If you are thin skinned, don't believe in child discipline or are staunch supporters of unions and entitlement programs, then stop reading this review right now. Roudy will eagerly offend you in ways you've never heard of and be exceptionally proud of himself when you leave an emotional mess. On the other hand, if you came to Telluride to enjoy... More

We wanted to horseback ride but when Roudy found out my husband was 225+ pounds (don't tell anyone but he is up to 260! Yikes!), he said he wouldn't do that to his horses. Then he called back later and came up with a fabulous idea: go for a sleigh ride at dusk. First we were offered to use the... More

I've known this guy for over 20 years. He KNOWS HORSES. He does not suffer fools lightly. If you have an attitude, go somewhere else. But! if you want hear some of the funniest crazy non-stop stories, have a beautiful trail ride and learn what it is to be a free spirit then this is the place for you. Yep,... More
