“First Rate Ride”

Hell's Backbone Ranch and Trail
Reviewed August 26, 2012

A friend and fellow horsewomen and I took a trip this Aug. to ride and site see. I had researched all the riding establishments in the area and chose Hell's Backbone, and I am sure glad I did!!!!! When ever I am on vacation I try to find a place to ride, but this was the best one yet! We took the half-day ride and it was the most different riding experience I have ever had ! You ride up and down shear slip stone walls and the view was awesome!!! It is a little out of the way, but worth the trip. V.Z.

My sister and I booked a half day ride with Hell's Backbone Ranch and were thrilled with what a great experience it turned out to be. As a novice rider who enjoys the occassional vacation horse ride I'm used to the ploding trail horse that most stables use. That could not be further from the experience we had with Breck and his excellently trained horses. He took the two of us up into the aspens around some beautiful lakes for a half day ride. Everything about the experience was great - the scenery was wonderful, the horses a pleasure to ride, and Breck was a great guide who was happy to share information about his way of life and the area as a whole. If you are out in Boulder, don't miss a ride with Hell's Backbone Ranch.

On our way from Bryce to Capitol Reef, we stopped here and took a two hour horse back ride In Hell's Backbone area of Boulder. Our Guide, Becky, was great and was very patient with our group of novices (but didn't baby us). We enjoyed the break from hiking and the experience of horseback riding through an area that was all our own- we didn't see another soul on our two hour ride. Though the scenery doesn't compare to Bryce and Zion, it was still quite interesting and we were glad we had the experience to ride horses together as a family.
