Horseback Trail Rides

Take in the view from the saddle!

Check out the Backcountry Wilderness Area on four hooves instead of two feet on our guided horseback trail rides. The relaxing one-hour outing explores a portion of our conservation property with opportunities to spot local wildlife like elk, mule deer, bobcats, golden eagles, and wild turkeys. The Front Range foothills provide the perfect backdrop to a close-to-home horseback riding experience. Ages 7+.
