Mission Statement: “To love and respect our horses, and to give merit for the joy they bring to our lives and those around us”

We are closed on Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays we have experienced fewer horse-related injuries when giving our horses a day of rest-except on Memorial Wk & Labor Day.

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

Our recreational horseback rides are nose-to-tail due to the nature of the terrain.  We love and respect our horses and always consider the safety of our clients, while responsibly riding from 8,500ft to 10,500ft in the Colorado Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

Reservations are required so we may conduct our business professionally, so we have the appropriate number of horses and guides on duty.   Information first names, heights, weights, and ages of children 17 and under, cell phone number, and where you are staying. Call (719)530-0480
