This place has the friendliest & very competent people! You will ride through Garden of the Gods park which is stunning! I lived in Colorado Springs for 10 years and have been coming back every year for the past 20 years. I have never have it seen it from this angle. Trust me this is worth the ride. Two hours is the perfect amount of time. ♥️♥️♥️

We did the 2 hour ride and had an excellent time. The staff has good judgment in matching horses with riders, and they follow safety protocols. Angel was a great guide and was knowledgeable about local sights and history.

I did a one hour tour with Angel who was awesome! He regularly checked up on the riders and horses to make sure everybody was okay and stopped the tour if needed to make any adjustments to the horses. Said some cool dad jokes too haha on top of that, the scenery was gorgeous.

We took the 2-hour riding tour and it was awesome! The views of Garden of the Gods were spectacular, the trail was not for beginners -had a few steeper areas with steps for the horses to go up and down, but nothing too challenging. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and provided helpful tips along the way. This is definitely worth the $!

We did the 1 hr ride. It was perfect for beginner riders. My 12 year old and 8 year old had a great time. Learned a lot and beautiful views.. Definitely recommend this.

The one hour ride was great - none of the horses were too much for beginners. It was relaxing and there were beautiful views of the Rockies and the Garden of the Gods. Captain and Big John were such great horses!

Just finished a two hour garden of the gods ride with Billy as our guide. It was fantastic. The entire staff were welcoming and the horses great. Billy filled us in on many of the amazing rock formations and history of the garden. I would highly recommend this ride.
