What a great ride! We went horseback riding for 2 lovely hours. Diamond, my horse, was fantastic. We enjoyed the company of our guides, Henry and a lovely young lady. They were both very friendly, knowledgeable and friendly. The trail or path was very nice, safe for riding and with breathtaking views. It was wonderful. I highly recommend it. I... More

Six of us -- including two 16-year-old boys and two 50+ women with hip problems -- enjoyed a beautiful two hour trail ride with Cassandra and Vinnie on gentle horses thru beautiful scenery. Perfect outing. We called at 9AM and were on the trail by 11. Across the highway from Purgatory resort.

I had a ride with Shawn as the guide and two other beginning riders. I am an experienced rider and they put me on Morgan, which was a wonderful horse. I was surprised at how responsive he was. It was an absolutely stunning ride and Shawn was fun to have as a guide. He pointed out interesting facts and seemed... More

I booked a reservation at Buck's for myself and two of my children ages 11 and 14. I had not been on a horse in close to 30 years and it was a new experience for both my children. The guides where wonderful at matching up riders to just the right mount. They were also great at making the riders... More

They have an excellent group of guides and horses. We did both the one and two hour tours, and recommend the two hour if possible. There is a lot to see - great mountains, and lots of aspen trees. The horses are great for kids.

Our family enjoyed a scenic and relaxing ride with Buck's crew. The horses were very calm and well trained. We had the best picture of our group taken on the trip.

My family and I ( three adults and three kids aged 11 - 17) went on a two hour ride with our guides Shawn and his daughter. We had very little to no experience on horseback. The horses were so easy to handle. Shawn learned all of our names and was very patient with us. The scenery was breathtaking. We... More

There's nothing like an easy back country trail ride with Buck's folks. You see the scenery of the area in a way that you can never see from the road, and experience the peace of the aspen forests and mountain lakes. Ben and his staff are courteous, fun, and knowledgeable. And, they are safety-oriented. We are big city folks who... More

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.
