Good trails, but nothing from our guides

The horses were calm and the trails pretty good, but the guides were blah at best. They gave us nothing on the history of the ranch (and there is a lot) or Estes Park. The were... read more

The horses were calm and the trails pretty good, but the guides were blah at best. They gave us nothing on the history of the ranch (and there is a lot) or Estes Park. The were young girls and it is clear they have not been trained on how to engage groups. One of us had a large horse and... More

Great horses and trail guides are fun, but it appeared that nobody cleans up after the horses use the bathroom EVER. Trails were beautiful and fairly easy to navigate through. Horses are well trained to navigate the course for the 1-hour tour. I just would have been better impressed with the $40 we spent (each) if I had seen better... More

We went for this because of a Grupon advice. The riders were really freindly and helpfull, they were all the time asking how was everything and giving tips about how to ride your horse. The horse are very well trained and they obey all of the comands, you just have to be a little stern and not let them do... More

I would like to purchase the Groupon like I did last year but based on these reviews and the fact that I can't get in touch with anyone from this establishment so I'm giving up. I tried calling 5 times today and wasn't able to get in touch with anyone. I don't recall this same issue last year. Why is... More

In early September 2013 my wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary in Colorado. We brought our two 30ish daughters and son-in-laws with us to help in the celebration. On Wednesday September 4, 2013 our three couples all went on a ride at O’dells and experienced a very nice ride. Each and every person there was so polite and well... More

I previously posted a positive review which I would like to modify. Although I understand that the horse stables are run by a separate group form the hotel, I want to warn everyone. These stables are under new management and the management is horrible. We had Groupons for a ride for four people purchased in June which we intended to... More

The staff asked what my riding experience was before placing me with a horse for my ride. We went on a 2 hour ride and the horse I had Zeke was perfect for me. Happy to walk gently most of the time yet trot if needed. The horse responded perfectly to verbal and rein commands and was very sure footed... More

I was given a groupon by my daughter for my birthday... I have been trying to redeem it with an enjoyable summer horseback ride in the rockies for the last several months only to get the same "mailbox full" message.
