Somehow we had both neglected to ever ride a horse, so being in the west seemed like a good place to make up for it!
We called ahead to ask if the was appropriate for our lack of experience & were assured that this was no problem, so the next day we arrived for the one hour ride. We were matched with horses that had a lot more experience than us, and it worked out just fine! Once I realized that the horse had no interest in falling down, I figured that I was OK!
We went up the switchback trails of the ski resort that afforded great views of the town & surrounding area. I chose to leave my camera behind because I thought I'd have enough trouble keeping myself upright, but wish I'd taken it!
Would reccomend to first timers-nice people, nice horses, and a good experience!
