The experience was amazing! A combination of country hospitality, rugged trail ride and local historic sites. Kristie and Rodney were very nice and knowledgable about the sites we visited. The horses were friendly and WELL-BEHAVED! My family had an AMAZING time and we will be back to camp and ride again!

My husband and I visited Cortez, CO, to celebrate our anniversary. We broke up our mesa verde hiking days with a trail ride and were certainly not disappointed. Kristie was so friendly, knowledgeable, and very considerate of our experience level and needs. She is also concerned about and does preserve the archeology of the region. We felt like we made...

We stayed 2 nights at this fantastic ranch. It is set in the middle of a canyon and is absolutely beautiful. We have twin 14 yr old boys who are adventurous and teenagers. The campsite was quiet and peaceful with enough outdoors for my boys and the stars at night were endless!. We took their guided horseback ride through the... More

three of us of abilities from very experienced to beginner went with Kristy for her morning trail ride. What a great ride. the horses were very well trained and responsive. Kristy took us onto Canyon of the Ancients BLM land. Her stories of the history and archaeology of the area were fascinating. Part of the ride goes by ruins which... More

We had been to the museums, the park tours, done the day program on local archaeology but our half day ride with Kristie was more fun and informative than all of them combined. Okay if you don't ride often or ever, you will be comfortable and taken care of by your guide and her sure footed steeds. You will experience... More

We couldn't have asked for a better guide. He was really good with the horses and helping us with the horses. He also knew the archeology and history very well. He shared his knowledge in a way that was interesting for everyone. The ruins and the view from the higher elevation were so cool. If I ever did it again... More

I have taken my granddaughter to various trail rides in the SW Colorado area. This was by far the best experience for her and also myself. Seeing the native american ruins, but the ride. Kristie explained the vegatation, history of area, info on the ruins. Will plan to go again when Granddaughter comes up......... Barbara

We had the best time on our horseback ride with Kristie! You can book your ride different places but this is the only one where you can ride and hike back in to see ruins of the ancient Pueblo Indians. Kristie has a great knowledge and an even greater respect for the area and the history of this ancient people.... More

Our trailride with Kristie was arranged through our stay at Dunton Hot Springs. Without knowing exactly what to expect, we had a blast! Kristie clearly understands and appreciates the history of the land she takes you through and points out many interesting things that you would never discover on your own. When we got back to Dunton we raved about... More

We discovered Canyon Trails Ranch several years ago when Kristie and her husband still owned Kelly Place B&B and we were staying there. We've returned 3 times to the area and have ridden with Kristie each time. The rides have been excellent, informative and fun. Our horses well-mannered and Kristie is full of all kinds of details about the area.... More
