The best horse back riding experience I truly ever had

I took a trip to aspen by myself from Florida to see the true beauty of its valleys and there's no better way to do it other then horseback. I had no real clue where I was at or... read more

Hi, as an avid traveler and horseback rider I was quite disappointed (and shocked) with Capitol Peak Outfitter's customer service. I spoke with John (the owner) and he could not have been more offensive or rude. We were interested in booking the horseback ride plus fishing excursion. They said it would be no problem to fly fish at the lake... More

Did a two hour horseback riding with Capitol Peak Outfitters. They took our groups of 16 including children on a great ride. Had 2 guides that were very helpful. I really would recommend. I did another company a couple years ago and this ride was by far much better

Wow. Sexy guide, un describable views...swept my group off our feet. The horses are gorgeous, Matt, our guide was like a hotter version of Brad Pitt, but so kind and warm, you just fe let like an old friend. The land scape was like something out of a lord of the rings film. We felt like heros on this tour,... More

I can't speak highly enough regarding this tour. Incredible views, nice lunch, nice price, great guide, professional staff, and calm, well-behaved horses 🐴. The views are just incredible as you head up to the mountain. You will pass through creeks and valleys and on the way back you go a different route through all new sights! Matt was friendly and...

Had a great day in July through diverse terrain and fantastic scenery on a half day ride up Capitol Creek with Roger, the wrangler. Look forward to doing it again, but then an overnight ride to Crested Butte (if I can convince my wife Katy).

We had a half day of riding that was a full four hours. Our guide, Luke was accommodating and kind. The horses were very well trained and well mannered. The scenery was spectacular and it was a good value for what we paid. We all had a great time.

We have ridden with Capitol Peak three times. We just did an all day ride to Capital Peak with them. Jose our wrangler was great. Nice guy, informative, and clearly knew what he was doing. The country they ride through is spectacular. The all day ride is a little long, but getting to the base of Capitol Peak made it... More

My family went on the half-day ride out into Maroon Bells and were blown-away with the beauty if the snow-capped mountains even in July. Our horses were pretty well-behaved, though a few times we had to pull them back in line, but we all would do the ride again in a heartbeat!

I went on the 1/2 day Capitol Peak ride and it was nothing short of stunning! I hadn't ridden a horse before so I wasn't totally sure what I was in for. The horses are very well trained and were a great fit for me since I was inexperienced. The guide, Sarah, was sweet, knowledgeable, and funny. The scenery was... More
