We have always wanted to take a horse back ride through these beautiful mountains and we finally did it this summer. We chose Boulder Mountain at Deer Valley because this is our favorite ski area in Park City. From start to end it was a great experience. Sally our guide was GREAT! She not only guided us through the trails but gave stories about the area and the trees that we never knew. I would recommend Boulder Mountain to anyone that would like to go horseback riding in this area.

Wonderful trail ride through Deer Valley. The guides were knowledgeable and gave us tips on wildflowers and edible plants. The horses were powerful, steady and incredibly kind giants that hauled my 9 year old and myself safely on the trail. They picked their way down narrow trails and easily up the grind of a 8000 foot elevation without even breaking a sweat. The horses are well cared for and their owners know each one perfectly.

My wife and I have been horseback riding at locations throughout the US and Europe. Unfortunately at Bolder Mountain few details of the ride could be improved on. First of all during the entire 2 hour ride we NEVER stopped once to enjoy the scenery or provided an opportunity to take a photo. Our guides never spoke a word to the group except to tell us to stay in line. The ride was literally 2 hours of slow moving horses in a line without any information at all. The ride description advised the “Best views in town and stunning views of the Jordanelle Reservoir”. It would have been nice to stop, takes a photo or two and enjoy the stunning views. All we got was a slow moving view of the stunning scenery.

BMR please consider providing your guests the opportunity to stop, enjoy the scenery and provide a chance to take photos during the ride. It would make the experience much better.

We went with the two hour tour and everyone in our family (6 people) was bored. We didn't realize the horse route was on the Deer Valley ski runs, which we had hiked the day before, so no new views. We wish they mentioned that on their website beforehand and we wouldn't have booked. The ride was extremely slow compared to other rides we had done in California. We could have slowly hiked faster than these horses we going. We asked our guide to go a little faster, and she said no, which was disappointing considering there was so much dust and dirt. Also, our guide told us she had only worked there for 2.5 weeks, which explained why she seemed to not have a ton of knowledge about the horses or area, like was mentioned in other reviews. We did end up tipping her $20/person, which we felt was generous. Overall, we wouldn't do it again.

Beautiful views of Jordanelle Reservoir and Deer Valley Mountain, but very, very slow ride. We had hikers pass us and we were on horses. Our guide was sweet and friendly but didn't offer much about horseback riding or the scenery. Our family classified this adventure as "boring" including our 11 & 8 year old boys...not what we expected for the amount of money we paid. Not worth the money we paid.

The trails are narrow but established and fun. Beautiful views everywhere. While riding you very quickly start thinking how people used to really ride like this instead of what you see in movies. Staff was very friendly and attentive to all experience levels of riders. Already planning to go again. Highly suggest it to anyone wanting a ride with all kinds of types of riding.

I had a wonderful ride in the mountains above Park City. Chancy the guide was great. Because 5 of us arrived early, we went out as a small group. You ride up and under the chair lifts to an overlook of the Jordanelle Reservoir and the valley. While riding we saw Peregrine Falcons! If I had had time I would have booked another ride.

My husband and I took 4 granddaughters - ages 8,13,14 & 15 on vacation to Park City. We most often ride only on vacation so we researched horseback riding. Like other good reviews, this place exceeded our expectations. They match horses to riders and the horses are well trained along the trail. We did the 2 hour Jordanelle Trail and the views were spectacular!
This ride made great memories for all of us & I think the staff is amazing! Thank you!

We visited the ranch to go horseback riding on our summer vacation to Deer Valley and we loved it. Our guide, Will, took us out on the sweetest horses who really ddi all the work for us on a beautiful mountain trail. The backdrop is gorgeous, the horses so sweet, and the whole experience memorable and enjoyable. Thank you Will and Boulder Mountain Ranch at Deer Valley.
