I have to admit to approaching the breakfast ride with some trepidation. I don't particularly like horses but wanted to treat the family to a U.S. horseback experience. Furthermore, my feeling was that spending in excess of $300 was fairly outrageous and incredibly extravagant. However,...More

My wife took our 15 and 10 year old on the evening steak ride while I stayed with our baby. They had a great time, loved the horses, and thought the entire trip was beautiful. The only negative feedback was they thought the guides could...More

My husband and I did the breakfast ride a couple of days ago while staying in Winter Park. I am an experienced rider, he is not. As other reviewers have described, it is a walking-only, head to tail type ride, which may not appeal to...More

Beautiful trails near the Granby area. Guide was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious--nice way to spend the morning. Be prepared to be sore if you're not a regular horse rider--but for a complete novice, it's still a good experience.

Spent an hour on a trail ride here and it was a very pleasant experience. Gabe was a great horse, Wiley needs a bit more management. Staff was wonderful and accommodating. A nice way to spend an hour in the glorious Colorado sunshine.
