Our family selected the two-hour Moraine Park tour and the amount of time was perfect. One hour would have been too short, and three hours much too long. I'm sure the horses could walk the trail on their own even if the riders were blindfolded - but that's half the fun. Some of the trails were very steep, trotting did... More

Good ride! Beautiful scenery on the one hour Glacier Basin ride. Very good price. Not too technical for a beginner. Perfect for me and my seven year old!

Our party of 5 went for a 2 hour Moraine Park ride on August 1. I have been riding horses at the YMCA stables since 1972. It is always top on my list of things I have to do while in Estes Park. I always appreciate the time they take to ask questions in order to pair riders with the... More

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!
