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.

My 9 year old daughter and I went on the 2 hour Moraine Park ride and it was an OUTSTANDING experience. The scenery was amazing and our guide Sammie Jo could not have been better. I learned several facts about RMNP, horses and last year's flood. This is the only stable we go to while in Estes. The staff is... More

We have taken trail rides several times from this stable and have always had great service and beautiful horses. The scenery is to die for.

Located at the YMCA Of The Rockies, our group took a 1-hour ride through the trees and along the stream. It was great. Our guide Dylan told about various kinds of trees along the way, and the horses were all well-trained and compliant. We went back later for picture taking and observed how well these animals are cared for and... More

My daughter and I stayed at the YMCA of the Rockies. The main reason was to go horseback riding at Jackson Stables. We had a great time. The wranglers were fun and the horses are incredible. We will do this again.

We took a one-hour ride, as we could all be considered beginner riders (including 10-yr-old son). They had already given many if the "gentler" horses out to the kids in the trail ride that left before us, but our horses were pretty well-behaved. Unless you are near the front, you won't be able to make out much of what the... More

Our family took the 2 hour Moraine Park ride. It was a beautiful ride with varied terrain. We enjoyed crossing bridges, climbing up and down the rocky mountainside and the spectacular Moraine Valley. While it was the highlight of our kid's trip (ages 8 and 11), there were a few negatives. We were late in getting the ride started, so... More

We enjoyed the Glacier Basin ride with our two kids, ages 9 & 7. I was a little nervous since this was their first time riding, but the wranglers were great with them and the kids did great!! This was probably our favorite activity on our trip. The horses were very gentle and the staff was so helpful and informative!... More
