Sad looking place. Lots of History though.

Went with a group of 8 and got their 20 minutes early like requested and then they were not ready for us for another hour. I thought it was a really run down place and very... read more

We scheduled for a Saturday 2 weeks in advance (we bought a groupon FYI) for our parents who were visiting from Illinois. We called and confirmed we were scheduled for Saturday. We tried calling and emailing the day before, no response from either. We get up at 4:30am and drive for a couple hours to make our schedule. When we... More

I actually took a 2hour trip on a horse by the name of Whisperer. Trotting was the best part. (Ibuprofen helped after) The guides were very careful to make sure you knew what was what. Explained things we saw, names of mountains, etc. Kids can go as well, there's a one hour trip they'd enjoy. Just so you know, Lightning... More

Went with a group of 8 and got their 20 minutes early like requested and then they were not ready for us for another hour. I thought it was a really run down place and very expensive for an hour ride. The Elkhorn Lodge looks like it was a super nice place back in the day but looks like it... 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
