Horseback Riding

Few activities embody the West like a good old-fashioned horseback ride through Colorado’s prairie or mountain settings. Somehow, wildlife viewing, sightseeing and simply enjoying the outdoors are just a bit different when sitting astride a saddle.

Horseriding stables and dude ranches all over Colorado offer everything from half-day guided trail rides to overnight adventures in the state’s amazing natural places.
