“Great horses and history!”

Canyon Trails Ranch Guided Horse Tours
Reviewed October 30, 2013

three of us of abilities from very experienced to beginner went with Kristy for her morning trail ride. What a great ride. the horses were very well trained and responsive. Kristy took us onto Canyon of the Ancients BLM land. Her stories of the history and archaeology of the area were fascinating. Part of the ride goes by ruins which we were able to stop and look at including a cave. it was not your usual nose to tail ride as the terrain does not really allow it which made it even better. You got a true feel for the country. Rodney, Kristy's husband, is restoring an old wagon in the barn which is well worth seeing. This was a great experience.

We had been to the museums, the park tours, done the day program on local archaeology but our half day ride with Kristie was more fun and informative than all of them combined.

Okay if you don't ride often or ever, you will be comfortable and taken care of by your guide and her sure footed steeds. You will experience the thrill of seeing off track ancient sights, and pick up lots of local lore. We are well past retirement and did not find the tour too strenuous.

We couldn't have asked for a better guide. He was really good with the horses and helping us with the horses. He also knew the archeology and history very well. He shared his knowledge in a way that was interesting for everyone. The ruins and the view from the higher elevation were so cool. If I ever did it again I would definitely do a full day to see more.

I have taken my granddaughter to various trail rides in the SW Colorado area. This was by far the best experience for her and also myself. Seeing the native american ruins, but the ride. Kristie explained the vegatation, history of area, info on the ruins. Will plan to go again when Granddaughter comes up.........

We had the best time on our horseback ride with Kristie! You can book your ride different places but this is the only one where you can ride and hike back in to see ruins of the ancient Pueblo Indians. Kristie has a great knowledge and an even greater respect for the area and the history of this ancient people. This sets Canyon Trails above the rest. The horses were beautiful, well-mannered and patient. Even though none of us were experienced riders, we felt like expert horsewomen. My daughter booked this for my granddaughter's birthday and all of us from ages 63 to 14 had a great time!
