The horses are in great shape, focus is on safety without being uptight, the guys working there are friendly and knowledgable (thanks Chance :) Our kids had a great time, the trail is varied enough to hold their riding interest and beautiful as well. Definitely worth the 30 minute drive from Ketchum, which is lovely in and of itself.

After researching the horse back riding options near Sun Valley, we chose Galena Stage Stop Corrals based on the other reviews. We were not disappointed and had a great 1 1/2 hour ride with a few other people and a guide leading the way. Before getting on our horses, they have a tent with boots, hats, and chaps that you...

We had an amazing 1 1/2 hour ride at Galena Stage Stop. Our guide was Ron, an experienced, horse lover and friendly rider who made our ride enjoyable. Ron knows the area extremely well and explained everything about the local wild life. Safety is a priority which makes the ride accessible to any ages. The horses are well behaved and... More

Thank you for taking the time to write us this lovely review. We think Ron is a great guide and we are glad that you enjoyed your ride with him. If you enjoyed the 1.5hr you would likely enjoy our half day rides! We also do rides over Galena Pass at Redfish Lake. We hope to see you again this... More

The guides are so nice, calm, and accommodating, and the scenery is so beautiful. From the moment we got there with three little girls there was never a dull moment. There is actually a special tent FULL of genuine cowboy/cowgirl gear (think chaps, boots, hats) of many bright colors to get you in the western spirit. Hello, pictures! Then the... More

We were camping near stanley and decided to go on a family horseback ride. Our guides were over the top safety and knowledge wise. This made our ride much more comfortable. The horses are well trained and gentle. They matched us up with our horses. Our girls are still talking about it. Dennis and Ron are the best. We are... More

My husband and I wanted to explore by horseback the beautiful mountains surrounding Galena, Idaho. After careful consideration, we choose the Galena Stage Stop Corrals for an all-day ride. Everything about the ride was FANTASTIC - including the views, the horses, the guide, the trails, and the equipment!!! We spent the morning traveling mining trails through lush forests and meadows...

Went riding with the family today at Galena Stage Stop Corrals. Ride was a generous 1.5 hours, through great scenery, and interesting terrain. Crossed a stream a few times, and had switchbacks going up and down to get a great view of a nearby mountain. The horses were friendly and easy to manage, even for our 8 yr old girl... More

We had a great time at Galena Stage Stop Corrals. I was impressed with their thorough instructions and emphasis on safety. We went out on a short ride as a family on one day, then my 8 year old daughter did a solo ride to Titus Lake with Dennis later in the week. Both trips were scenic and fun with... More

Having lived all over the country, we've been to many riding facilities over the years. I was amazed at the safety concerns of the staff for each rider. They sized everyone up & made sure the horses suited thier personalities. They gave riding tips & a quick lesson before the ride. I'd never seen the mounting technique they used anywhere... More
