I had a chance to take a sleigh ride at Purgatory this past winter. While it was short, I found it to be very fun and my family really enjoyed the experience, and enjoyed the opportunity to lean a bit more about the incredible draft horses used to pull the sleighs. I looked up Buck's this summer, and was intrigued... More

We had a 6 year old boy and 2 8 year old girls. Ride was perfect length with the kids and they are begging to... More

We went on a two hour horse back trail ride on Friday, July 17, 2015. The guy in the office (Ben) was super nice and friendly. Our trail guide (Aaron) was really super nice and friendly as well. My 2 kids (daughter age 10 and son age 9) tell everyone that it was super fun! The 2 hour trail ride... More

My daughters and I took a quick road trip to Durango before the school year starts back up here in Phoenix, AZ. On the day we were to return home, we booked a trail ride at Buck's Livery. From the moment we stepped on the property, everyone was so friendly ( except the llama, which spit on some poor guy... More

An amazing ride through the picturesque San Juan Mountains. As soon as we pulled up we were greeted by a cheery young lady, Emmy. The guides did a perfect job matching skill-level with steed. Our two hour ride was full of local information thanks to Aaron and Sean. Upon our return Vinny made sure we got off our mounts with... More

The guys at Buck's were great. Attentive and patient. We have three kids under 12 years old. Aaron and the guys were supportive and did a great job of teaching the basics which helped our kids enjoy their rides. We will definitely be back.

We saved our ride for the last day of our trip. Despite a little rain on our 2 hour ride - we had the best time. My kids (9&14) were given a mule or horse that were easy for each to handle and our family was taken on a private tour of the lake and mountain in our 2 hour... More

Loved Bucks Livery!!!! We were just in Durango and we had booked a private trail ride with Bucks Livery to us and another family that was traveling with us(total 10 riders). It was AMAZING! They put each of us on horses that were perfect to our riding experience. They even stopped and took pictures of us with a beautiful background!... More

A perfect morning ride. We'd been to Bucks a few times before, and wanted some different scenery, so they took us down a different trail with more elevation change. Our guide, Emmy, was fun and knowledgeable. Buck's staff is friendly and seem like they really enjoy their work. We'll be back!

Thank you Ben, Aaron, and everyone else involved in my son's ride this morning. Your staff is wonderful. Everyone is friendly, and took the time needed to ensure that everyone was comfortable before starting the ride. My son (13) had a smile a mile wide when I picked him up. And also, thank you for the photos. They were a... More
