We have done several horseback guided riding trails in the past. Elk mountain was by far the best yet. The most beautiful scenery. A long ride (well worth the cost). The guide was great and so were the horses. I highly recommend them!

Has Ann as a Guide was a great trip. Took the Family riding with her and this company last week and had lots of fun. The views were all great. Would do it again.

We visited Elk Mountain Riding Company today and had a wonderful experience. The horses were so well mannered and the ride was exceptional. We rode side by side, ahead of and behind, not in a boring straight line. Marty was an exceptional and personable guide....More
