It was Fun

We went on the 30 minute horse ride. Our leader was awesome. My daughter loved it. They seem to pick the perfect horse for each rider.

Horseback rides into RMNP, full services on site - as it is part of the campground. Kids can play in river or pet/feed animals. Dog friendly. Great for families.

We enjoyed a terrific two hour trail ride! One hour would not be enough. The horses knew where their one hour turn around would have been. At that point we were not nearly ready to head back and the more pristine part of the trail was on the second hour. We were impressed with the system of the stable to... More

Took a 2 hour tour of Estes Park on horseback. Our guide Katie was amazing. she picked great horses for everyone. I was very nervous as I had never ridden in my 61 years and also have a pretty new hip! It was wonderful scenery and just a great time. don't forget to use the complimentary helmets!

From making the reservation to dismounting, the staff was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. We were a group of 12 doing the 2 hour trail. The matching of horse to rider was skilled. Our guide, Aubrey, was wonderful! She provided solid instructions and engaging conversation (my seven year old nephew was chewing her ear off!) We got to spot a moose.... More

This place is super clean, horses are well cared for and seem pretty happy with their job. The wranglers are friendly and patient.

This was our second time to visit Winding River Stables/Farm. We love the independent "pony" rides. They are actual horses! Well kept horses. Nothing is worse than seeing a sad looking animal. I did learn it is better to make a reservation. Luckily, the wonderful staff worked with me when I made a reservation for one and not another. The... More

The location is ideal and away from the bustle of town. This is a stable within a campground\ motor home park with claims. Anyway the trails were great and the price is fair. Would def. do again

This place was amazing, I could have spent my whole day here. Stables and farm area were super clean. You can tell the horses here are well taken care of and they are super friendly. I am glad I did some research and went here instead of the horse riding stable located in town, right on the busy street. That... More
