My wife and I (both 64) went for a 2 hour trail ride with our daughter and grandson. Since it was Labor Day weekend we made reservations, which was easy, and we showed up about 20-30 minutes early, as requested, to fill out paperwork. The stable is just about 1.5 miles off Rt 34 and easy to find. The paperwork... More

What a terrific time on a 2 hour trail ride through RMNP and it's horse trails. Even saw a Moose lying in the reeds along the Colorado River. The staff was fantastic, helpful, and polite. I highly recommend this experience if in the area to enjoy nature and animals.

Great ride! We did the two hour ride and the second half was absolutely fantastic. Hannah is so patient and friendly. My horse (Cash) on the other hand really wanted to slow down so that I could take it all in. Stable was clean and the horse very well behaved. We literally rode through a herd of elk without issue.... More

Went on a 2-hr ride with 13 of my family members ages 12-60+. Some of us were experienced riders and some of us had never ridden before. The first hour or so was pretty flat and I was regretting not letting my 7yo come with me (she went on the 1hr ride with my parents), but then we started hitting... More

We took a 1 hour ride on June 7. Very clean stables and obviously very well cared for horses. All staff were friendly and gave us appropriate horses based on our experience and provided instruction. Clouds were forming and rain was starting so they advised us to put the slickers they provided on before we took off on our ride.... More

Out and back ride. First half hour was basically flat and on dusty trails next to ranching land and camp grounds. Hour up and down the... More

Had a wonderful 1 hr ride with the family. Went through National Park along the Colorado River. Saw a moose :)) Nice selection of horses for all riders/abilities. Signs on the hwy from Grand Lake are misleading-Resort and Horse Stables are reversed. Its actually the 2nd Winding River turn to the left.

We went on the 30 minute horse ride. Our leader was awesome. My daughter loved it. They seem to pick the perfect horse for each rider.
