Horseback riding in the mountains always brings a different element to the experience. Taking a ride in the Fall offered a lifetime experience to take in the spectacular colors. This stable was tremendous- great horses and experienced guides.

Our trip would not have been complete without this amazing adventure!!! My sister-in-law and I enjoyed every minute of our hour and a half ride! She has a small fear of horses and I have a fear of heights so our guides Kurt and Nunu put us on the most gentle horses (Fancy & Brownie) and went out of their... More

We had 11 in our group ranging from no experience to very experienced and the staff put the right people on the right horses. This was by far the best trail ride experience and the weather was rainy just before the ride which made for the best scenery and riding above the clouds literally! In fact our group pic is... More

Their horses were well behaved and treated so well. Definitely a... More

My wife and I spent two days hiking to Hanging Lake and Booth Falls so before we went to Piney Ranch we decided to let horses do the climbing for a change and it was so worth it. We had a wonderful time, the ride was excellent and the scenery incredible. It was an excellent value

My daughter and I are very experienced riders, and we thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Adrianna our guide was great. We loved talking "horse" with her! Our horses, Cash and Salt were extremley sure footed over the wet soil and rocks. It was nice to relax and ride instead of always working on something with our horses. Make sure you were... More
