Horseback Riding in Winter Park

What better way to experience the spirit of the Wild West than atop your very own bucking bronco? Grand County offers many majestic views filled with lush meadows and towering snow-capped mountain peaks. Trails carry visitors through valleys lined with ponderosa pine and across trickling mountain streams. While there are many ways to enjoy these scenic trails, the best way to access them is on horseback.

Riding is the perfect group activity that everyone, from adults to families with small children, will enjoy. Come for a half-hour ride or a day-long excursion. Enjoy a mountainside picnic on a breakfast or dinner ride. Carriage and hayrides are another great option for large groups. Whatever you choose, an expertly guided ride through pastoral Grand County is sure to help you find your inner cowboy.
