I would highly recommend this place! Our guides, Rachael and Travis were awesome!!! They made it fun and exciting and gave alot of information! Everyone there was really super nice!!! And the scenery was breathtaking! One FYI though, take a camera that you only need one hand to take pictures! Otherwise, you may not get very many pictures of the beautiful rock formations!

If you have a DoD or military ID and want to ride some horses, you should definitely come here. They offer boarding, lessons, and horse rentals at incomparable prices. Plus, the rental horses are great w/ my favorite being Mr. T. Advise: Ask how to ride along the ridge (it's about a 2 hour walk for the horses). Bring a camera. The views are gorgeous.

Great staff, beautiful horses and discount for military. Worth the price. Take a ride thru the Garden of the Gods.

This trail ride goes through the Garden of the Gods and counts as one of our best activities. Mom, Dad and boys 8 & 12 had a thoroughly wonderful time. The staff was friendly and helpful, as well as skilled and attentive. The horses were well disciplined; however, they did respond to rider direction.

This was not just an amusement park ride - but a legitimate tour on horseback. We had a terrific time and appreciate the high quality we found at Academy Stables.

We reserved the 2 hour ride and it was completely full. I highly recommend reservations. The wranglers were very knowledgeable but we were in the center of the pack of horses and could not hear the history and other information very well. The wrangler in the back shared some of the information but not all. The ride was actually 2.5 hours and the horses were perfect for beginners. Both kids did really well. Loved the rock climbing with horses!!
