My boyfriend and I booked a two-hour trail ride when we visited Estes Park. Winter is a slow season for them, so we lucked out and didn't have anyone else other than the guides on the ride with us. The horses that we rode (Gus and Fritz) were large horses and seemed quite comfortable making their way through snow and... More

My wife and I had a great time and highly recommend Sombero Ranch. Their trails are well maintained (we were in the snow) and we always felt that our wrangler had our best interests in mind during the entire ride. They were prepared for us when we arrived and the internet web site was so easy to make reservations. Thank... More

Enjoyable ride, long and saw so much awe-inspiring beauty. Only drawback is that I felt my horse was too large for me. I'm an experienced rider but my horse was a Belgian draft horse and HUGE for my 5'1" frame. He was amazing in navigating the ups and downs of the mountain trail though, and the staff was probably correct... More

Did an hour horseback ride and really enjoyed every second of it. The guide was great and the views were amazing. The horses were well behaved and kind. Would totally recommend!!

Found a deal on Groupon for our family to go horseback riding. It was great! Our family of five were the only ones in the group with a guide. We had a blast and went on a nice stroll through the hills. We even had a mule deer join us for a while!

The guide and staff were very helpful and friendly! There were four of us on the two hour ride and we all had an excellent time on our horses in the Roosevelt Natl. Forest.

Faith is an excellent tour guide and we both enjoyed our ride very much. We did the one hour ride, I don't think I could have done much more, a little sore the next day but not bad. Trail is well worn. Lots of uphill and downhill. Great scenery.

Easy online reservation system. Horses were saddled and ready to go when we arrived. The views on the trail as we went up the mountain were gorgeous. There was quite a bit of snow on the ground and we hit a few slippery spots, but the horses were steady and sure. Fun, sweet guide who chatted about various horses and... More

Ruger was very sure footed on the icy,snowy, muddy path. It was quite impressive. Zoey was a great wrangler, making all the riders feel safe and like they were doing well. The trail had a variety of views considering we only signed up for the 2-hour ride. The day we were signed up to ride originally had 35 MPH winds... More

Great price excellent riding trail. Was very impressed with Zoey, she paid great attention to what was going behind her. We had a 5year old first time rider and Zoey made us very comfortable. Thank you for a great experience
