My wife and I decided we wanted to “stretch” our riding legs and decided to do the 4 hour ride. What a great idea that turned out to be, the weather was great and we had the trail to ourselves. The views along the river were to die for, literally! The trail gets pretty technical in places but these horses are well trained and sure footed. It was definitely strenuous for us two seniors but if you are adventurous, I highly recommend it!

We were driving thru CO and called ahead to schedule an hour ride for the family. We had a great ride thru the pines. The whole crew was super friendly and one of the dogs followed us the whole way. The horses were easy to handle and the ride was awesome. I’ll definitely give them a call when I come back.

Miss Staci and Emily were outstanding and took such good care of us. The horses were gentle and knew exactly where to go. The weather was perfect and the views spectacular. We took the two hour trip which was just right for our family. I can't thank them enough for a memorable day.

We were ATV-ing in the mountains above Back Country Outfitters, lost and without cell service. We stopped by the office and asked if she would help us make a call to the ATV Rental place. Our only options were to go back the way we came, with thunder clouds gathering and the possibility of spending the night out in the wilderness or getting trailered back to the ATV place. The lady that helped us was extremely nice and saved our bacon. We will definitely skip the ATVs and ride horses with this company the next time we are here. We are very grateful for the assistance.

We did the 2 hour trail ride with Emily as our guide. This was the first time we've been on horseback and the experience was wonderful! We opted for the 2 hour ride which was long enough to get a great view of Chimney Rock. Emily was patient, friendly and engaging. Also the prices were much more reasonable than others. Would definitely recommend this company!
