The Wrangler Ride is perfect for novice and youth riders alike. The trail is fairly flat and open, taking you through some of Ouray's historic mining country. Along the way you will view the valley floor with the towering Corbett Peak and White House Peak as a backdrop.
About 1 hour
Ages 5+ (must ride their own horse)
Mountain peak backdrop

COMPLETELY worth it!
Not for those afraid of heights
This is a versatile ride that has many trails available for any level of experience, making it our most popular ride.
With trails accessed only by foot or horseback in the Uncompahgre Wilderness, this is the ultimate Colorado horseback riding experience.
Trails gain elevation until you reach the top, surrounding you with mountain peaks. To the east, Mt. Sneffels and to the west, Chimney Peak and Court House Mountain, the setting of John Wayne's True Grit.
Stop for a quick break to stretch your legs and check tack. Descend to the creek bottom where the horses get a well-deserved drink of water. Four hours in the saddle can be quite intimidating and will surely leave you a bit sore, but the experience is well worth it.
