Trail Rides | Horsebacking

View the Beautiful mountains of Colorado on horseback. 

We offer a variety of rides for everyone to enjoy - from beginner to more experienced.  

The 1/2 hour or one hour ride is great for the beginner or someone who is just looking for a shorter ride. The trail meanders through a meadow landscape with rolling hills and scattered trees. You may be lucky enough to see a badger, coyote or even a deer. Prairie dogs are almost always out.

The two hour ride starts on a trailhead in National Forest.  The trail winds through the forest and offers some great views.  This ride is great for those that are a little more adventuresome. 

 
Weaving in and out of the trees and enjoying the breathtaking views pleases everyone from beginner to advanced. On this ride some riders have been lucky enough to see wild deer, elk, turkey, and on occasion a black bear.
Those looking for a great photographic trail ride through the beautiful San Juan Wilderness, along the Continental Divide, or the Weminuche Wilderness may want to book a full day or even an overnight pack trip with us. Each of these rides will need advanced reservations and are based on availability.
