Wilderness Horseback Rides
Wilderness Horseback Rides
Full Day Rides | Truly Pristine Wilderness
Our primary focus is full-day rides for families, corporate groups, friends, and teams of executives.
All full-day rides are charged per person, with a minimum of 2 riders.
5-6 hours of riding
These full-day rides include lunch at a remote location
Depending on the group’s preferences, we can focus on views, wildlife, or historical hot spots in the Flat Tops.
Our ranch is located approximately one hour and twenty minutes from Vail, and one hour from Eagle or Glenwood Springs. Because of our remoteness, we rarely run into other people (hikers, horseback riders, bikers, etc.) during our trips. Trips are in a truly pristine wilderness that no longer exists next to any of the ski towns.
Base price is per person for a full-day ride. Minimum of 2 people required to book

Rules & Guidelines
The best gear you can bring is the right state of mind to enjoy the wilderness. Colorado serves up a high percentage of perfect sunny days in the summer; the fish bite all day, wildlife abounds and there are mind boggling views. However, the area is a remote and wild place. Weather and many other variables can affect your trip. Having the right attitude for this type of trip can make or
break your experience.
Our day trips are perfect for trying out new gear, but use all your gear before bringing it on our multi-day trips. This especially applies to boots, day packs and safety equipment. New, not-worn in boots can ruin a trip. Making sure your day pack fits well will make your trip more enjoyable.
If you are coming with a group, please try to limit duplicate items. Work with each other to organize who brings what. Everywhere we go requires pack stock. We want to avoid packing unneeded weight. This lessens the impact on the wilderness (less pack animals used) and allows staff to focus on guiding activities instead of caring for more pack animals.
The weather in June-August is usually sunny with highs in the 55-70 degree range and night time temps in the 40-50 degree range. Just keep in mind, the altitude does allow any day to turn out to be a winter day. A large portion of our area is around 10k to above 11k.
On day trips, you can get away with most all clothing materials as long as you make sure to bring decent rain gear. On multi-day trips, stay away from cotton, i.e. Carhartt, blue jeans, cotton socks, etc… When cotton gets wet it is useless and it will exacerbate suboptimal weather’s effect on your body. Focus on wool and synthetics. There is a lot of newer technology clothing that is lightweight, packable, warm and dries quickly.
Don’t hesitate to give us a call about any specific gear questions.
