Horseback riding

We have different packages accommodating riders of all skills and ages. Below is a description of what each package offers.

BUCKAROO RIDE            (1 HOUR)

This ride accommodates riders who are younger so families can be together or for those at a beginner level.  We take you through the basics of how to ride and do some fun activities to challenge the new skills you learn! Our trail rides begin at 10 years old, so this is an opportunity for families with children 6 and up to ride together, learn some new skills, and have fun making memories.  Children who are 6-10 and show they can ride effectively and safely can go on our longer trail rides after this class (as per the Head Wranglers discretion.)

  • $50 per person
  • 10 years and up.
  • Moderate terrain, weight limit 250 lbs.

WRANGLER RIDE             (2 HOURS)

On this 2 hour ride you will navigate hills and rocks while on forest trails. The reward? The best views of Pike’s Peak. As with all of our horseback rides, they are loops, so it offers more unique wildlife viewing and scenery than any other.

  • $90 per person
  • 10 years and up.
  • Moderate terrain, weight limit 250 lbs.

The Bonanza Experience:

Learn to work cattle like a real cowboy!

As kids we all fantasized about doing cowboy things like driving cattle through the wilderness mountains and meadows. This is a chance to make that childhood fantasy come true! This is a two day program starting Friday at 5:30pm. Friday we will learn safety and basic riding tips on how to direct the cattle while in the arena. Then Saturday we bring in the cattle! In groups of 4 you will practice in the arena with our cattle learning penning, sorting, and cutting just like a real cowboy. We will teach you how to rope on roping dummies during downtime.  We are sure you will be letting out some Yee Haws! and singing the tune to Bonanza along the way. These Bonanza Experiences will be once a month and limited in number of riders. Make your reservation early!
