Best location for great views. Sombrerro ranches are professional safe but also feel like you are riding with friends. Its not too commercialized. The horses were well cared for and beautiful.

My husband and I visited in June of this year. We called in advance to get reservations and were taken on a ride with just the two of us by one of the wranglers. We rode up into the mountains along a beautiful trail for 2hrs. The horses we rode were beautiful and extremely well behaved. I have visited RMNP... More

My husband, son, and I took a 3 hour ride up the mountain. It was so authentic. Our guide Kylie gave us good commentary. The horses were trustworthy and it was exciting.

We rode with Compass today and had a fantastic time! She has a fantastic sense of humor and shared all sorts of mountain knowledge with us along the trail. She took care to make sure we chose the ride trail ride for our family and we were given horses that suited us. I highly recommend this horse riding experience and... More

Compass and her crew are exceptional, year after year. They care about their horses AND their guests. When we saw the large tourist groups being saddled up and waiting around (nose-to-tail) in the Estes Park location we made the drive to Allenspark and were very glad we did! This stable feels smaller and more attentive. They keep group sizes small,... More

We had a group with experienced riders, first timers and young children (6 and 10). Everyone was well accommodated. Great people to deal with. Our guide was excellent and informative (Greg, I think).

I booked a trip for three children and wife for Father's Day online. Turns out that some brown ranch this is not open on Sundays. The owner OPENED for business on Sunday to accommodate my family and did so in amazing fashion. Compass and family blew away our expectations! I would recommend this stable and company to anybody. The ride... More

My boyfriend went on their 3 hour trail ride and it was absolutely beautiful. Our guide was really informative, he also took us to a creek (which was amazing) and let us get off the horses and hike a bit before continuing our ride. The views were way better than I expected--so happy we decided to come!

We had an excellent experience. Perfect service from planning, preparation upon arrival, guidance during the trip and personal attention throughout. The horses were in good shape and well mannered. Greg took great opportunities to take excellent group photos of us.
