My family group of 11 (ages 15 to 60+) had a fun 2 hour ride with wranglers Viola, Ella & Ryan, followed by lunch! Most of us were beginner riders and all felt very comfortable. Beautiful scenery, nice ride, friendly & helpful staff. Definitely recommend!

We (age 35-64) looked for a family ride that wasn't nose to tail and we found it. We rode up the ridge, through aspens, and our horses handled the rocky trails well. The employees knew each horse personally and described their quirks to us so...More

From memory, I think other riders wore sneakers on the day I rode...I'm sure if you were to call ahead they'd be able to advise.
