great pony rides for kids under 6

Took our 4-year-old twins to a reasonably priced, 20 min pony ride; A parent leads the pony through a wooded loop trail. The kids loved it.

We've done approx. 6 horseback riding trips in the Estes area and this one was the best. The service was very pleasant and helpful. We took the three our trip and loved the scenic views. Some open country where we could do some trotting with the horses as well as a lot of mountain trails in the woods. The group... More

The wranglers at Jackson Stables are on the ball. They have great horses and equipment and seem to put safety first. We have been on other trail rides where this was not the case, so we really appreciated the focus on safety with our kids. The one hour ride was fun and not difficult for our beginners. We would recommend... More

We took the hayride while staying at the YMCA Camp. It is enjoyable for all ages. The crew from the stables were very nice and gave us interesting info on the way to the marsh mellow roast. They also entertain the children. Highly recommend.

The staff was friendly and the horses nice except a few liked to stop and needed to be encouraged to go by kicking them with your heels. We toured some scenic trails. I would recommend this to others and would go back again.

We knew to make our reservations early! My daughter and two grand daughters took a three hour ride into Rocky Mountain National Park on a perfect morning and came back glowing! Another daughter took my grandson on a one hour ride that same morning and had a wonderful time!

Jackson Stables is well run. We had a great time! We liked the two girls who lead our trail ride. They had our safety in mind, and told about things along the trail.

It was our first time riding, but the guides matched us with very well trained horses; and the ride went smoothly. We went on a 1 hour ride down to the Basin and back; the terrain has some hills and valleys, but the horses handled it well. Some of our riders were little children who were not pleased at all...

We had 2 adults and 3 children (ages 6, 7 and 9) and everyone loved the experience at Jackson Stables. We did the 2-hour afternoon ride and thought it was quite beautiful - the scenery, the wildlife, etc. They had helmets for the kids, which we really appreciated, and we also appreciated that they matched the horses with the kids....

My 12 and 11 year old daughter's loved the experience. They were on the 2 hour Emerald ride (it was altered from flooding...so not sure if it was more of the Moraine ride). They saw a moose and learned a lot about RMNP. I would bet this is the top attraction they will remember from the trip.
