The horses looked to be well kept. Our guide was very nice and took care of our group. The views were beautiful. Saw some coyotes nearby. Went on the 2 hours ride. Would highly recommend.

We've ridden with NPGS several times over the years. Sometimes it was my husband and I, our children when they were younger, and with friends. All with varying degrees of riding knowledge. We've done 2hr. rides, 4hr, 6hr, and a 9hr. We've always had a great trip. The guides are always wonderful and the horses are well taken care of.... More

The guide was very happy and talkative. My horse was comfortable and calm. The scenery was breathtaking! For two hours we walked over and around rocks, trees, valleys, meadows and a stream. We heard Elk calling and actually saw one on the trail. This may be an intimidating ride at certain points for a beginner but the horses were well... More

Loved seeing the leaves turning colors and the wildlife. Because of the time of year, lots of people parked along the road to see the wildlife, so it was difficult at times to get around them.

The ride was beauiful. The fall leaves were so pretty. My horse "Joker" was well behaved. We enjoyed it so much that wish we would have went on a longer ride.

My sister and I consider Estes Park our home away from home, as we've been vacationing there since we were kids. It had been many years, however, since we had been on a trail ride - as our aching legs could attest. Despite the aches, our recent experience at this stable was so enjoyable that it inspired us to commit... More

decided to take the 6 hour horseback ride which was only my 3 time on a horse. Going up a narrow mountain on a horse was very terrifying but I did it. My body was aching all the way down and I had a difficult time moving by the time I got off the horse but it's all in the... More

They were great. We were there for a family wedding so it was a large g.roup, we went on the two hour ride. They divided us into two groups, patiently answered all the young kids questions and got everyone a horse according to their riding ability. The scenery was lovely and we rode by a herd of elk which were... More
