We had so much fun on our 2 hour tour with Christie. The horses were very big and seemed sweet. It was our first experience riding and our guide, Christie, was awesome in helping us enjoy our tour. The only issue that we had was the safety equipment. My boyfriend and I have rather large heads, and there were NO... More

Enjoyed a personal one hour trail ride for the family. Seems like everyone else that day had signed up for the two hour ride so we ended up with our own guide. No complaints though as we got to talk a lot with her while riding. I appreciated that there was a step to help me get up on my... More

I did the 2.5 hour Breakfast ride and loved it. I was in the back which made me a bit nervous at first but our guide made sure to keep an eye on me (and my hungry horse ;) ). He was great and checked to make sure we were all secure about a 1/3 of the way through before... More

We had a good one hour horse ride. We had two young children 4 & 5 that road their own horse. As a parent I was nervous to allow this but I felt the horses and staff were awesome. My four year old can't wait to ride a horse like a big girl again. My horse was having fly issues... More

We picked this location as the first stop on our family vacation. My daughter rides horses, so we decided to do a 2 hour ride as a family. When we arrived, the horses were all outside in the sun and already saddled. My daughter did not like how the horses were being maintained. We decided to go anyway ( big... More

My wife and I had some horses that spent a lot of time messing with their back legs than they did walking the trail. But that was really the only complaint we could have and we know that their animals and you never know what you're going to get. My four daughters had a tremendous experience and loved every second... More

We took our three kids (ages 7,6, and 2) and their grandparents on a one-hour trail ride. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. The kids had not ridden a horse and it had been years since we had. We were able to ride with the two-year old double with an adult. There were not a lot of places that... More

Because my husband loves horses and has worked with them in the past, we thought we would like riding through Estes Park. The ride itself was nice, however we will not use this company again. The facilities are pitiful and quite unclean. Do not expect a picture of you and your horse with your partner because they will not do... More

We returned to Sombrero again! We go to Estes Park every summer and always fit in at least one ride. We did the breakfast ride. It's great to get your day started early and it's always cool. After a nice long ride, you stop at the top for a great breakfast of pancakes, eggs and sausage. It's a perfect mountain... More

We took the 2 hr breakfast horseback ride with our 2 boys age 9 and 10. It left at 7:30 in the morning, with the weather being typically great in the mornings. They have horses for all types and sizes of riders, and the staff were great. They engaged everyone from kids to adults and were very good about making... More
