“Spectacular views, nice horses & courteous wrangler”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Spectacular views, nice horses & courteous wrangler - We are experienced riders & took a 2 hour trail ride with the wrangler, not Fence Post - forgive me for not remembering his name because Post called him everything but his name...Alfredo? but Post called him "Forito" and a few other affectionate names. We had very nice horses, safe tack & great conversation about the area, horses & the wrangler's upbringing in Mexico. It was very enjoyable. We booked the ride the night before since our planned itinerary had to be changed due to the wildfires - so we were very happy they were able to accommodate. Yes, Fence Post is a typical cowboy who is a little rough around the edges, but harmless. When we came back in - he asked questions of us & the wrangler to ensure we enjoyed our ride. You can tell he loves his animals & employees as both are treated very well. I would recommend more than an hour ride to really see the sights.

“Yee-Haw!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

My husband and I decided to take a spur-of-the-moment trail ride. After a few mis-steps trying to get ahold of Fence Poste or Punchy, we got through to Fence Poste. When we arrived, we met Fence and Caity. Caity took us on our two-hour ride astride his mule, and he was friendly and very knowledgable about the area. Our steeds were Bluebell and Spring, and both seemed quite well cared-for. We were both inexperienced riders, but Caity and the horses knew what they were doing, so there was no problem. The path we took was beautiful and scenic.

“A unique place for a exciting trail ride”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

My wife and niece loved a truly exciting and entertaining trial ride with "Fencepost." If you want to have a trail ride in Ouray this is where you want to be. Solid horses. Excellent tack. Be prepared for a trial ride like no other.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

We booked the horse riding before our trip thinking we are visiting cowboy region and we should do something to experience this, and I am so glad we did. We all loved every minute of our two hour ride, Post is a typical cowboy, and we really enjoyed the easy company and banter between Post and Punchy. The views were spectacular, the horses were well looked after and very relaxed even with nervous riders.

This is a definite must do when in Ouray/Telluride. We will be back!
