Stopped by the Winding River Ranch to take a one hour ride before spending the day in the Rock Mountain National Park. It is very close to the entrance at Grand Lake it was the perfect stop before going in to the park. I went there with my wife and two teenage daughters. My daughters were not very experienced in riding horses but our guide Madison did a great job of making them feel very comfortable with their horses. The one hour ride was just enough and the scenery is awesome. Unfortunately did not see a moose but having my girls have a great time was well worth it. Highly recommend stopping by if you are going to the National Park or in the Grand Lake area.

We had a great time, The wildlife roam the property, Deer, Elk, and Moose. Bring a horse or ride one of theirs. ATV's for rent as well. Lots of room between sites.

The petting zoo is an easy way to distract the kids as you wait for the horses to be prepared.
The staff took time to find out what riding experience each person had and then pair them with an appropriate horse.
We had a two hour ride. The first hour was through beautiful area. The second hour -- not so much since it was along a busy park road and you had the constant noise of cars passing by.
The guide was great with our children. Took great care of them. He had lots of interesting stories and jokes to tell to help pass the time too. Don't worry, he didn't talk the whole time. Just enough. He answered the kids questions too.

My kids enjoyed the experience and the staff was really nice and helpful. Because my kids were beginners this was perfect. I will say though next time I will want to make sure we do a ride that gets us out into nature a bit.

Awesome adventure for families-young kids love the petting zoo and easy access to the animals, love seeing the horses come in to camp in the morning and watch them leave for the pasture in the evening-a forever family memory!
