Great family outing....

We did the sleigh ride at Purgatory. This was a fun outing with beautiful scenic views and the people running it are great.

Henry, our driver, was friendly and seemed interested in our story. Dottie, the fearless lead dog, ran ahead to sniff out other canines, returning to the lead sleigh, under direction of her... More

We did a private ride with Sean. He took us through the mountains for 2 hours. It was so peaceful and he was very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. This is definitely a buck list item. Does it get any better than riding through the mountains by horseback? Will definitely go back to Bucks!

Buck's Livery has been a go-to activity for our family for years. Book rides for 1 or 2 hours, try a half day trail ride, try a supper ride. Everyone is friendly and the horses are well mannered.

We came as a group of four booking a half day ride at the last minute. We were the only ride that day so we got a private tour! Three of the four of us were experienced and comfortable with horses. I had experiences, but I am not comfortable with horses having had a few bad experiences in the past.... More

Six of us -- including two 16-year-old boys and two 50+ women with hip problems -- enjoyed a beautiful two hour trail ride with Cassandra and Vinnie on gentle horses thru beautiful scenery. Perfect outing. We called at 9AM and were on the trail by 11. Across the highway from Purgatory resort.

I had a ride with Shawn as the guide and two other beginning riders. I am an experienced rider and they put me on Morgan, which was a wonderful horse. I was surprised at how responsive he was. It was an absolutely stunning ride and Shawn was fun to have as a guide. He pointed out interesting facts and seemed... More

I booked a reservation at Buck's for myself and two of my children ages 11 and 14. I had not been on a horse in close to 30 years and it was a new experience for both my children. The guides where wonderful at matching up riders to just the right mount. They were also great at making the riders... More
