Took my wife for a horse ride even though we barely know how to ride. I got a big boy named Quinn. We had a good easy ride and got to see some nice countryside and a bedded bull elk. I would do it again.

We had an amazing 2 hour ride today! Beautiful views - it was slow and easy. Nothing hard or fast at all. Great experience! All the staff we’re extremely sweet.

Riding horses here is suitable for both young and old. The guide was nice and helped the amateur riders well. He also tamed the horses. We rode through Estes Park and had some pleasant views. The road was bumpy, and as a result, we always...More
