In early September 2013 my wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary in Colorado. We brought our two 30ish daughters and son-in-laws with us to help in the celebration.
On Wednesday September 4, 2013 our three couples all went on a ride at O’dells and experienced a very nice ride. Each and every person there was so polite and well mannered. The horses seemed well groomed and taken care of. Our ride lasted about one hour and was done very well, with considerable caution. However, considering some of the terrain, rocks and mud from an earlier heavy rain…it was likely the best ride I could have experienced. We had ridden with a group of about 15 mid to older persons so even if on the limited flat terrain they said to “run or go about on your own” I feel that it would have created chaos and a potentially dangerous situation.
Good horses, nice scenery and WONDERFUL (and new) staff made for a very pleasant evening!
Thank you O’dells for helping us celebrate our anniversary!
