I had such a good time here. The staff is friendly, the horses are patient, and the view is stunning. The drive up to the stables was pretty and I was told “just keep going straight and you’ll find us.” It feels longer than 5...More

An amazing trail ride through a piece of heaven. Try to fit this into your visit. I'm a middle aged woman - pretty much a riding novice - and I had a great time. So don't let age or ability (or lack thereof ) keep...More

Don't let the description of the drive up scare you. Yes it's a windy road but only 5.8 miles. The drive is absolutely worth it! Scenic views, beautiful trail and lots of wildlife! Blevins was our wrangler for our 2 hour trail ride. Blevins loves...More

We tried to go horseback riding here and found they have a 200lb weight limit. I would recommend a diet plan before you go. After that they referred us to the Terryall Ranch which isn't even opened at all this year for renovation. You would...More

It is true, our two hour ride does have a weight limit of two hundred pounds. We climb almost 1000 feet on that ride, and are trying to make it easier on the horse's backs after working hard on the trail. Our weight limit is...More

This is a beautiful setting for a trail ride. The scenery and trail were spectacular. The weather was perfect for our one-hour ride through the pines above Cheyenne Mountain. Horses were clean, gentle, and seemed to be well cared for. Two points: One, the 5...More

Thank you for your comments. We totally agree that the ride up is half the adventure, and is not for everyone. The road was built over a hundred years ago for the stagecoach and wagon traffic travelling to Cripple Creek during the gold rush. The...More
