Beautiful summer morning ride with guide Emily and one family of four. I reserved two days ahead, but no crowd at 10 AM. My ride was Smokey the mule (30 yrs young) so we understood each other. Cool untouched forest shade, wild flowers, and slow clip-clip were just right for my 65 yr body. We did trot twice ( once... More

We got here with my family and Maverick was our tour for the day. He was really polite and really nice. We loved our horses and the experience was amazing. Casper was the best horse. Definitely recommend this place.

We had a great time riding at davey crockett's. The lady that checked us in was so helpful. They took a lot of time to choose the right horses for everyone. It would be awesome if you could go with just your group. Thanks for a great afternoon!

The rates are good but the staff was not very friendly. We just stood waiting for someone to help us and tell us what to do.

Our family decided to go on a ride and we were able to get a reservation pretty quickly. We had a 4 year old, 6 year old, and 8 year old all ride alone with no trouble. My 3 year old son rode with his dad and enjoyed every moment of it. He even wanted to go back and ride... More

My daughter horse back rides so we thought this would be a fun activity for her. The staff were very personable and squeezed us in ahead of a tour bus. My daughter had a blast taking a route up the side of a mountain, and you need absolutely no experience! The horses were on auto pilot! This is a fun... More

If you are looking for a low key ride without loads of people this is the place. Kind and knowledgable guides that take VERY good care of their horses. The trails are real horse trails (not this gravel or paved nonsense) in the woods with a few mountain views. Was the best 2 hour ride for such a reasonable price!... More

My wife and I took our children, ages 9 and 7. We had a most wonderful time. The people there are extremely friendly and our guide was amazing. She was very interactive on the ride and made the whole experience very amazing. We have ridden in Estes Park, Colorado and by far this was way better. I highly recommend this... More

Beautiful summer ride with my family through the woods... much of the ride was shaded so the 1.5 hour ride was perfect!! The staff, very professional and willing to accommodate. Try to make reservations, but if you just show up, they will do their best to get you on a horse. Great time.
