Adult-Only Horseback Rides (15yrs+)

Our rides are intimate, relaxed and flexible because all of our rides are adult-only (15yrs+)  Riders must be 15yrs and older. 

It’s true, we’ve discontinued all riding for children, but check out GOGA!   or click here to answer the burning question,  What Happened to the Kids Program?

Maximum of 12 horses available (usually in 2 groups with 2-6ppl)

Open M-F, sometimes Saturday 

1.5 hour ride @ 8:30 or 9:00, 10:30 or 11:00, 1:00 and 3:00, depending on the day.  

Our trails are on mountainous terrain just above the town of Vail.  The trails are beginner friendly and the wildlife is plentiful.

The trail is only 12″ wide so the horses walk single-file unless walking on the jeep trail.  All rides are walking and trotting rides.  No cantering (galloping, loping, running) as the horses must climb 1000ft in elevation the first 30 minutes and would get too skinny.  Cliffs and steep trails are not a problem and beginners are encouraged to ride.  Advanced riders are welcome to trot.

The ride includes a good change in elevation, dense forests of quaking Aspen trees, increasing exposure to the beauty of the area, the smell of leather, the sound of birds and the colors of the wildflowers.

Riders are immersed in the magical garden of an Aspen glade with stunning white trunks, and a leafy green canopy that changes color throughout the day, as the sun moves. Giant Cow Parsnip towers over the heads of the horses. Deer stare at the passersby with unblinking eyes, hiding their fawns in the thick, green underbrush that appears to cover everything. You will see wide-open, scenic views of the Gore Range, Vail ski slopes, and Beaver Creek ski slopes under bluebird skies.
