Trail Rides

Colorado Trail Rides
Unique Rocky Mountain Horseback Riding

Imagine navigating your own path through gorgeous aspen groves, up mountaintops, and across wildflower fields while soaking in the sunshine. You might see one of several historic 1800’s pioneer homesteads and hear about the local flora and fauna. If you’re lucky, you could experience a beautiful rainbow after a refreshing sprinkle or catch a glimpse of wildlife peacefully enjoying their natural habitat on one of our NON-nose-to-tail trail rides. We have happy, healthy equines for all abilities and we personally choose each rider's horse according to their needs. While exploring our vast mountain ranch, you are encouraged to ride off the trails wherever the terrain allows.

The minimum age for Trail Rides is 8 years old.
Due to our concern with the risk to your child's safety, we do not offer any double riding. We also do not currently offer any pony rides. Children 8-12 years old are required to wear a helmet which is provided free of charge upon check-in at the ranch.
