Roudy was verbally abusing his employees when we arrived, but really crossed the line when he humiliated my seven year old son in front of the entire group of riders because he was nervous about getting on the horse. Roudy first yelled at my son for not being tough enough, and then yelled at his employees for not screening the guests more thoroughly. My son and I decided to not ride with this lunatic, and waited at the parking lot for my ten year old daughter and my husband who continued on the ride. When they returned, they said Roudy was insulting and rude throughout the entire ride. At the end of the trip, Roudy was rude to me, and was arrogant enough to autograph a poster that he insisted my daughter take with her. She left it in the rental car as trash. Although we enjoyed everything else in Telluride and will return to visit often, we will never return to Roudy's. He is truly awful. When tourists say that he is a local legend, it is because he has told them that. In contrast, if you ask the locals around Telluride, you will find out the truth- that he is an embittered lunatic who is unable to get along in society, follow rules, or be helpful at all. In medicine, we call that type of personality sociopathic, completely lacking empathy or remorse.
