Our most popular offering. This is a versatile ride that has many trails available for any level of experience. We start fairly flat and open. From there we have a variety of trails to fit your ability. You will see big mountain views, cross streams, navigate trails that are only open to foot or horseback travel, and maybe even pass by a waterfall. The Buckaroo Ride is sure to please any rider.
This is the full Colorado horseback riding experience. Trails are in the Uncompahgre Wilderness that are accessed by foot or horseback only. Steep elevation gains will land you on top where you are surrounded by 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. A stop for a quick break to stretch and check tack. Then a decent to the creek bottom for the horses to get a well deserved drink. Four hours in the saddle can be quite intimating and will surely leave you a bit sore, but the experience is well worth it.
