Fort Royal Stables
Reviewed July 3, 2013

We arrived for an 11:00 ride which we had scheduled the day before. There was no record in their books of the reservation. Manager said it was no problem and that we could still ride, but we would have to wait for the horses to come back from the 9:00 ride. So, we waited until 11:30 and then could not wait any longer because we had scheduled other activities back to back. Manager refunded our money with no problem. We were disappointed we didn't get to ride.

I have 5 young children. The staff were all accommodating and friendly. The horses were by far the most well behaved I have ever seen ;) TWO THUMBS UP

What a joke. They basically tell military to kiss off (with a proud claim that they offer NO military discount). The person working there was dressed like a prostitute and so were her friends who were laying around the dingy office while waiting for customers. The hooker-type worker was going to be the person who took us out on the ride too. Her friends appeared to be going as well.

We found a professional place to go for horseback riding. It was in Cotopaxi. Their prices are drastically better and the folks running the place are much more professional. They also have some respect for the military, police, fire, other first responders and for seniors! The place we found also has rock climbing, ATV adventures and some other stuff. Cotopaxi is about 20-25 mins from Canon City. Stay away from Fort Royal Stables. They don't deserve the business.

They were all ready for us and the horses they chose for each family member worked perfectly. It was hot, even in the morning, so bring some water. Kaylen was our guide and she did not tell us anything, but she kept a close eye on us all and kept the ride moving.

Courtney was a great tour guide! We had an amazing ride even with Cheyanne being a stubborn horse! She had plenty of information to keep us entertained and we strongly recommend that if you can make it out to Fort Royal Stables please request Courtney as your guide! She wont disappoint!
