What a fun afternoon! Our two hour moraine ride was excellent. It was my first time riding and they matched me up with Otis, a beautiful gentle horse. The experience was exactly as advertised on the Jackson Stables web site. The scenery and the weather were spectacular, and the college aged "wranglers" (guides) did a great job and made you...

Our family of five (children ages 8, 12, & 15) greatly enjoyed our 3 hr ride in Beaver Meadows. Our horses were well behaved, showed a bit of their individual personalities, and were fun to get to know. The scenery was breathtaking, especially when we came to a small secluded area full of elk (many many babies nestled down with... More

We went on the 2 hour ride through Moraine Park. My husband was not very excited about the trip but afterwards, said it was one of his favorite things. My two kids (13 and 8) had a fabulous time! The guides were great, the horses were well trained and the views were amazing. I will be doing a ride through... More

I have been coming to these stables since the early 1970's. They were owned by someone else then but even after they were sold the Jackson family kept the integrity of the stables the same. Very friendly. Horses are vary in levels of riders and the rides that are offered are fantastic! You can go for an hour, two hours,... More

I have best to Jackson Stables on 3 occasions. Twice last year riding the 2 hour and 1 hour rides. Today we completed the 5 hour ride to Bierstadt Lake. Great views mounted on safe and sound horses. I've ridden my own horses for many years and ridden at many stables around the country. I applaud the string of horses... More

We took a short 1 hour ride and it was great! It was my first time riding and I was assigned to a very calm horse. My mom's horse was acting up a bit and not listening to her, so one of the trail hands switched horses with her during the ride. After that we all had a great time!

I am 60 years old and this was my 1st experience ever riding a horse. I was given a very gentle fella named Sloppy Joe. Our guide was very engaging the entire 1 hour of our journey. The terrain was beautiful. Other stables were closed in April of our visit, but Jackson Stables took my reservations without any problem. Without... More

We did a one hour trail ride with myself, my wife, and our six year old daughter. Jackson couldn't have been any better, we had such a great time. Our daughter got to ride on her own horse all by herself and the horse was very well trained, she wasn't scared one bit. She called this her favorite activity on... More

Note: The address for Jackson Stables is wrong on Google - navigate to the YMCA of the Rockies instead. We had booked the three-hour trail ride through Beaver Meadows and were so happy we opted for the longer ride. Everyone we met was very nice and seemed to have a great time working there. We were delighted that my husband... More

A real highlight of our trip to Estes. With no previous experience, my wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed riding horseback through the Rockies. Yes, you have to put a little trust in the horse, but honestly I think the horses we were on could have made the entire trip without us holding onto the reigns....very mild mannered, well cares...
