Went on a the two hour ride with Shawn. Great ride. Highly recommend. We enjoyed Caesar, Alex and Susie. Be sure when you google it that you know it's North in Purgatory. Google wants to take you South of Durango.

We did a 45 minute sleigh ride from Purgatory Resort with Emmy who was super friendly, knowledgable about the area and more than willing to take your photos with the horses. The horses were very well cared for and friendly. One of the ranch dogs even came along with us which made it even more fun. I'd definitely recommend it... More

We took a horse drawn sleigh ride on Christmas Eve. The drivers were very nice and knowledgeable about the area. We learned quite a bit. It was hard to enjoy the view because we were riding in blizzard like conditions but it was still fun. I would definitely go back to them for trail rides in the summer. I'll have... More

We booked a two hour private ride. We had to reschedule twice because of rain and Buck's was very flexible. Emmy asked us about riding experience of our group (two riding frequently, one about 1/yr) and did a great job matching us up with our horses. I rode "Morgan" and really had a lot of fun with him. The ride... More

Eli was so patient - We were fortunate to have a private ride - myself, husband, -and son. I am typically nervous on a horse but Eli was encouraging and gave me some pointers along the way. He went over and above helping to take some photos of us as we rode. Emmy(sp?) set up our ride and she too... More

Recently made a trip to Durango. My wife and 3 older children booked the sunset trail ride with dinner. If you are in this area & don't take advantage of this adventure you are truly cheating yourself. The guides were excellent & made the whole experience exceeded anything we imagined. You cannot believe the scenery on the trail & the... More

I had a chance to take a sleigh ride at Purgatory this past winter. While it was short, I found it to be very fun and my family really enjoyed the experience, and enjoyed the opportunity to lean a bit more about the incredible draft horses used to pull the sleighs. I looked up Buck's this summer, and was intrigued... More

Brought my 3 kids and wife on the 2 hour ride. Guides were excellent and taught us about the trees flowers etc... The horses were perfect for all of us and couldn't have been better. We had a 6 year old boy and 2 8 year old girls. Ride was perfect length with the kids and they are begging to... More
