“The best!”
Reviewed October 5, 2011

I went with OutWest to scout some workshop locations and could not have been happier. I went with another group and the wranger was Dalton, and was great! He was relaxed with everyone, conversational, attentive to horse problems, etc. I am an experienced Western rider and have seldom felt as comfortable in a saddle. Horse was in great shape, responsive, tolerant of conflicting commands, etc. Mine once got caught up in munching the mountain grass and didn't notice the rest of the herd was way down the trail, and I purposely let her eat until she realized the situation. Hang on... Herd instinct was strong!! I knew we were going to cantor fast and maybe gallop to catch up... Sure enough... YAHOO! You have no idea how wonderful it is to race through the yellow and orange leaves of the aspens at sunset on a horse that knows the terrain and was very confident of everything... Wow what a rush!!

“Trail Ride Has Given Us Precious Family Memories”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

Entire family (15 years - 77 years) with mix of experienced and novice riders completely enjoyed the 5-hour ride in the Lead King Basin area of the Colorado Rockies, outside of Marble, CO. Our two guides were thoughtful and made us feel like real explorers. Even though most of the party hadn't been on a horse in years, the 5 hours flew by. The ride included time in a beautiful high meadow where we loped the horses and flushed some wild grouse. Owners Cheryl and John were very helpful. We called a couple of weeks before the trip and Cheryl made sure she knew our level of riding experience, our heights (to pre-set stirrups) and weights, etc., to ensure we were matched with the right horse. Cheryl also packed great lunches for us. Our horses were "Houston," "Marshall Dillon," "Drummer," and "Miss Kitty." We had a marvelous time, and hope to take this trail ride next year. Note: You can leave purses, etc., in your car, but definitely bring your camera.
