The Action Advantage

Action Adventures is a family owned and operated business. Western Colorado has been home for many generations. Providing quality horseback experiences is a way of life here. We breed, raise, and train all of our own livestock. Our horses are part of the family and our repeat clients always return looking to be reaquainted with the same horse they rode last. Your complete satisfaction is our main objective. We are not the largest outfitter in terms of number of riders we take each year, nor do we want to be. We want to be the best in making great memories that you will want to repeat.

Thank you so much for the best time and loved my horse Biscuit. Miss the mountains and you all took great care and kept us laughing. You are the best. I can't wait till next year!!!! Evonda Bowen
