Spectacular Horseback Rides

Claim your all-access pass through the beautiful backcountry of the Rockies on horseback. The trails are truly awe-inspiring, with wide-open scenic views and dense aspen glades with lush green undergrowth that includes giant cow parsnip with their large, delicate flowers.

The rides are a mix of adventure, relaxation, and quiet for the ultimate horse experience in the mountains, including wildlife sightings, singing birds, and blankets of wildflowers under blue Vail skies. The horses are gentle, yet perky. The guides are knowledgable, chatty or quiet, yet engaged. Come experience a ride with us today.

A note about first come, first served

If you show up and 24 people are waiting to mount a horse, they were there first.  We might be a bit busy and unable to drop everything for you — but maybe not! There may be a staff member standing around watching everyone do the work and we would send that person to tromp up the hill leading your child. Bonus!
