We took the 2 hour ride with an 8 and 10 year old. Good tour. Had about 15 folks on tour with 2 guides. The rear guide repeats the info so all can hear about the area.

A very memorable horseback ride through the Garden of the Gods. Depending on your experience level, it can be a little scary going up and over some of the rock outcroppings. Magnificent scenery and views.

This is truly an AMAZING place to horse back ride. My Husband and I visted Colorado Springs for a 6 day vacation. We did the 1,2,and 3 hour tour and It was pricey but worth the money. I would definetly recommend this place to everyone thats considering horse back riding. Each day that i went horse back riding, I always requested Benita. She's sweet and she was my favorite Horse. I can't wait to visit again..This place was great even the wranglers were great. We toured with Brooke and the next day we toured with Cassy. This place is amazing overall!!

We have ridden through Garden of the Gods several times, and always enjoy the spectacular views. You will see those beautiful rock formations in a new way and from a different angle. I especially appreciated that we saw and heard very few cars. The ride is peaceful and enthralling. A bit expensive, but worth it. The staff and wranglers are good at what they do.
