Trail Rides Or Horseback Rides “A Ride of a Lifetime”

Our Rides are nose-to-tail due to the type of terrain because we love and respect our horse’s riding at 8,700ft to 10,500ft in elevation depending on the ride and the safety of our clients.

Our small ride sizes ensure that our guests receive the personal attention they deserve to have a truly interactive horseback riding experience.

What better way to view the beauty of Colorado’s wilderness than from the back of a horse? Our small ride sizes ensure that our guests receive the personal attention they deserve to have a truly interactive horseback experience.

With a view of Colorado’s most difficult fourteeners, the Crestones, the Sierra Blaca, Mount Shavano and Tabeguache Peak (Sawatch Range), Historical Mt. Ouray, the Great National Sand Dunes and the San Luis Valley.
