“Mountain bliss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

The atmosphere, professionalism, and horses were exactly what my husband and I hoped for - we ride regularly at home and try to get out on horseback every time we're on vacation. We chose Sombrero because it is open in December and because of the mountain location. Kyle was a fabulous guide/wrangler, the horses are very healthy, and the ride itself -- climbing to 8000 ft, with amazing views and good conversation -- was perfect.

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

We took a 2 hour ride with Sombrero, which took us up to 8k, and it was pretty magical. It was a sunny but very windy day, but our mounts and our guide were totally inperturbable. Up and down some pretty extreme switchbacks, with gobstopping views at every turn. Kyle was a great guide, friendly and knowledgeable. We're both experienced riders, and we are always a little nervous about ending up with just nose-to-tail - the weather didn't allow for any "jogging" as they seem to call trotting, but it was no boring ride.

“A fun family ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

I would recommend the 2 hour ride--the trail climbs to an 8000 foot peak with views in all directions. The land is beautiful; the horses are great; the wrangler is knowledgeable, and easy-going.

“Great views of RMNP and estes park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

This trail ride was one of the best that I have experienced. The views of estes park and RMNP from the Roosevelt National Forest trail was spectacular. The horses and the ranchers were well trained though they did not tell us where we were on the trail.

“Amazing and Experienced Trailride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

We had an amazing trip up the mountain. It was very relaxing to know you're on a horse who you can trust will pretty much do the job for you with little-to-no guidance. Our wrangler was very knowledgable, experienced and seemed to still be excited about the "job" of guiding us by horse through the beautiful park!! We will absolutely ride with Sombrero again and I must say the horses were taken very good care of and were all so sweet!!
