I have thoroughly enjoyed my visits to Sombrero Ranch. Both times the staff has been warm and welcoming, the horses are well kept and are very kind and gentle animals. The trails are well maintained and offer beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains. I would absolutely recommend Sombrero Ranch to anyone looking for a very positive horseback ridng experience.

We really enjoyed Sombrero Ranch. Ranch is surprisingly located just a few minutes from downtown Estes Park, right near the lake. There was ample parking, but as the place was crowded, we did have to park across the street; only about a one minute walk to the stable, though, so no problem. We had made reservations several month's in advance.... More

We went on the 1 hour trail ride with our two kids and we all had a great time. The horses were very gentle and the scenery was beautiful.

The guide was knowledgeable, the horses are well-cared for, the trail is awesome and the views are outstanding! We will return again for a longer trail ride next time. Thank you!

We did the one hour ride from Estes Park Stables with a six year old and a nine year old. Both were given very calm horses that took good care of them during the ride. The terrain was just rugged enough that they felt we had had an adventure, and we got some lovely views. I'm sure there are other... More

First time horse back riding. Staff was helpful and informative on all the how-too's when it came to riding. Brought gloves, hats, phone, and wind jacket because the weather always changes. Time flew at Sombrero. Would do it again!

Had an excellent time at Sombrero Stables. Very friendly, thorough, safe, and have a beautiful, picturesque location. All horses were pleasant and easy to ride for us beginners. Our family with 2 teenagers (14 & 15 years old) LOVED every minutes of our guided ride. Would recommend this place to everyone!! The BEST in the business.

We did the two hour horseback ride with me, my six year old granddaughter and 9 year old grandson, and their mother. (my daughter). I am comfortable on a horse but the other three have little riding experience. My grandson was given a horse that was hard to control even though our guide said it was a "children's horse". She...

This incident did occur. The entire ride was handled flawlessly by the staff, yet someone got injured. Sometimes accidents happen and as much as we want to place, blame or fault on a business that isn't always possible or accurate. This was a very nice family and they requested that we communicate to our future inexperienced guests that there are... More
