Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some questions and answers we get on a regular basis. If you have questions please give us a call @ 970-325-3006 we are glad to answer them. We want you to be prepared for your adventure so you have the best time possible. 

Q? WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
A. Short answer: Whatever you want. Long answer: We really don’t care what you show up wearing. We have seen it all. Some arrive looking like they just walked off the set of a John Wayne movie while others look like they would be more comfortable on a beach. There is however a reason Cowboys dress like they do. Here is a list of recomendations: JACKET JEANS ***NO SHORTS*** HAT STURDY SHOES ***NO SANDALS OR OPEN TOED SHOES*** SUNSCREEN AND INSECT REPELLENT WATER BOTTLE TRAIL SNACK CAMERA
Q? WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

A. We have several locations!!! Make sure you know what location you have scheduled your adventure for. There are driving directions in your confirmation email. Google Maps is accurate and will bring you right to us, BUT remember to know which location you are scheduled for.

Q? WHAT METHODS OF PAYMENTS DO YOU ACCEPT?

A. Cash, Check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover Card.

Q? ARE RESERVATIONS REQUIRED?

A. No, but they are highly recommended. Our rides do fill up quick. Call us at 970-325-3006 to schedule your ride.

Q? HOW MANY OTHER PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE ON MY RIDE?

A. Small groups and personal service is our specialty. 8 riders per group is our typical maximum. We do try to keep every ride exclusive to your group, but during peak times we may have to mix groups together to accommodate everyone. 

Q? I HAVE NEVER RIDDEN A HORSE IS THIS AN ISSUE?

A. We take first time riders everyday. We take special care and time to educate you on the basics before and during the ride.

Q? DO YOU HAVE WEIGHT LIMITS?

A. This is a question we get regularly and it really has no easy answer. We set our weight limit at 235 pounds, but body proportions and ability are the true indicator. Someone that is 235 and 6′ that will sit up and ride a horse doesn’t concern me. On the other hand someone that is 235 and 4’8″ and sloshes around in the saddle is going to injure a horse real quick. We don’t have a scale and we won’t weigh you, but if you show up with more waddle than walk we will turn you away.  

Q? DO YOU HAVE AGE LIMITS?

A. 5+ years old – 1 hour
7+ years old – 2 hour
11+ years old – 4 hour and wilderness trips.

We do require 12 and below to wear provided helmets.

Q? Do you allow double riders?

A. No! Every rider gets their own horse. Young riders will be lead by a guide until they get the feel for it.
