Loved our tour, last ride of the day and just my daughter and I. Horses very well behaved and wrangler was awesome! Let us ask questions and showed a personal interest in where we were from.

I booked the three hour ride for September 11, 2012. As it turned out I was the only guest so I received a private tour of the park. My guide was very knowledgable and let me know ahead of time that we were approaching more difficult terrain so I would be prepared. My horse was very gentle and sure footed. In comparison to driving, the park is much more interesting by horseback. Highly recommended.

We took the 2 hour ride through Garden of the Gods-well worth it. Our guide Mark was very nice - informative and took the time to answer any questions we had. Very fun for all ages.

We took the one hour ride and I wish we had done a longer one. At first my 8 year old daughter was afraid, but the wrangler was so patient with her and got her comfortable on Thunder. When I asked my kids what their favorite part of Colorado was, they both agree that it was the horseback riding. that says a lot because they never agree on anything. Just allow yourself extra time because even though we arrived early, it took a long time to match everyone up to a horse. They really try to pick one they think will match your ability, size, etc. We would definitely come back to Academy Riding Stables again.
