First off, let me start by saying that our Guide MARLIN was AWESOME! I don't think that my ride would've been as great without him! We did the two hour ride and highly recommend that! Everyone was friendly and even sorta let us pick our horses.

The best way to take a leisurely tour of the inside of Garden of the Gods, vs. the paved roadways. Guides are helpful and informative of the formations and history of the park.

The stables was very clean and the tour guide Becca was very knowlegable however the ride was short and was really expensive for no more than you get....the whole tour may have been 30 mins and costed $98 for two people. Just not worth the money!!!

We are locals and wanted to go horseback riding. We have been to Garden of the Gods plenty of times but this was are first time seeing it on horse back. It was wonderful. The scenery was beautiful. The trail was interesting and our guide, Marlin, was fantastic. Well worth the "price of admission." We did the two hour tour and are experienced riders. Sometimes on commercial trail rides an experienced rider can get bored. Not this time. My mother (56) and daughter (10) both enjoyed themselves.

As beginner riders, we were amazed at the experience we were provided! The experienced wranglers were very helpful and patient with us. We've never been given such detailed instructions on how to manage a horse on a trail ride. Besides keeping us safe on our 2-hour tour through the Garden of the Gods, they also gave us the history and details about the rock formations. We would highly recommend this ride!
