If you're going to go for a horseback ride, this is the place to do it! It's a wonderful ride into the National Park, and the guides are wonderful. We saw some wild turkeys along the way, which was so much fun!

What a fun horseback ride. Veronica was our wrangler and did a great job. We were matched with horses based on our riding experience. I have hiked Rocky Mountain National Park many times, but the horeseback ride took us to places you normally do not see. We did the two hour trip and that was just the right choice for... More

Took a 2 hour ride, was glad we did not do a longer ride. The scenery was beautiful. The horses were well trained but the trail was narrow and rocky in some areas. It bothered me more than my daughter.

Have not been on a horse for 40 years but the staff, Monica and Miller were fantastic. They assist my wife and I and we went for the 2hr ride into the Rock Mountains. We saw Elk and WIld turkeys, spectacular views. Of course we were a bit sore upon dismounting but experience far outweighed the pain. Cost is $55... More

We enjoyed a beautiful fall afternoon ride at the stables. The 2 hour ride was just right as we were able to see flat lands and mountain views. Unfortunately, the wildlife did not want to come out and play, but we did see a few chipmunks, some bunnies and pheasants. The tour guide has a group of 8, so the... More

Amazing! We live in Florida and own our own horses so when I asked my boyfriend if we could go horseback riding in Colorado I had a little convincing to do. He thought it was silly since we ride all the time. But after a little persistence I won out. We booked a 6 hour ride to go up through... More

The price was good, and the ride was decent. I do wish there would have been more scenery. The guide was nice and helped and was patient. The kids really enjoyed it and so did we.

This is sure to be the highlight of my trip to Estes Park,CO and Rocky Mountain National Park. I took the two hour ride with a fabulous guide, Veronica Fleming. She took us, through fields, by the river, into the Forrest and up and down rocky grades(nothing too scary, just the perfect amount of adventure for any age). This is... More

We did the dinner ride which is later in the day. It was two hours of great scenery. The tour guide was great at making sure everyone was ok thru out the ride. Highly recommend!

The staff was welcoming and the ride was gorgeous. We went in August and during the two hour ride we experienced sun, light rain, sleet and hail! The horses were very good, calm and easy to ride. Kelley was our guide and that day we had the ride to ourselves!
