Horseback Rides

Near Colorado Springs


Our beautiful trails provide a variety of mountain views, from deep forest to panoramic settings overlooking the Rocky Mountain region. These can include glimpses of Colorado Springs and the far prairies, while surrounded by mountain peaks.

Your knowledgeable guide will escort you while entertaining you with tales of the old west, local lore, and observations about the flora and fauna, all while insuring your comfort and safety. Along the trail you may see wildlife, wildflowers, mushrooms, crystal clear creeks and spectacular aspen groves.

Our one hour ride is on the easiest trail, suitable for any ability of rider, while still providing a variety of scenic views as you travel up and down switch backs.

We also offer longer rides, one climbing another 800 feet past old mining claims.

  • How to Find Us

    *GPS not recommended for the stables

    Instead:  GPS the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo with an ETA of one hour prior to your ride time.
    One mile before the zoo, stop at the four way stop and turn up the Old Stage Road.
    We are 5.8 miles, and about 25 minutes, up what is primarily a twisty, windy, dirt road 2000 feet up.
    When in doubt, keep going.  This is normal.  When you arrive at the stables, there are BIG signs on both sides of the road.  You can't miss it.
    This will get you to the stables 30 minutes prior to your ride so that paperwork can be filled, helmets fitted if wanted, and to give you time to meet your horse!
