Myself with a group of “mature friends” took a trail ride in Sept. The horses were great - very gentle and well fed. The wrangles were two young women who cared for us and gave a great tour. The ride was 2 hours in length, truthfully, we all would have been totally happy to have ended at 45 min., but... More

This was not our first Rodeo with Sombrero Ranch, just the latest and as always it was a great ride. The day was windy so we looked forward to getting into the woods and up into the hills, loving every minute of it. They are noted for their Steak rides, all day rides and if you are adventurous a two... More

Our girls' outing was a lot of fun. The scenery was beautiful and the top of the mountain has breathless views. Our guide was friendly, professional but a little quiet. It rained for a few minutes but we were dry in no time. The stables were well kept and the horses appeared in good health. The price was the same... More

Booked this 2 hour ride on the fly as water rafting and tram were already closed for the "winter" season (Sept 1). Total surprise and great fun !! We had the best horse guide on our ride up the mountian, forgot his name but his horses name was Tequila which was funny in itself and she was a total sweetheart.... More

I've been going to Estes Park since the early 70's when I was very young, took my sons their as they grew up and have always made it a routine to do a couple hour trail ride. I've never had a bad time. We had a great Wrangler from Australia named Darcy who was a very nice young man and... More

I loved this experience! The guide was awesome and the horses all well trained. We took a ride up and had breakfast and it was good. Overall I would recommend this activity.

This ride is for people who like to sit on a horse as its walks in a row behind other horses. This is one hill on the 2 hour ride, but it is small, particularly compared to all the majestic mountains nearby. If you have ridden horses before this ride will disappoint.

Great wranglers and good horses! Nice ride up the mountain, our guide was great! Wish there had been more wildlife to see, but the scenery itself was beautiful.

We love Sombrero and their guides! My family just did the breakfast ride from Estes. Their guide was fantastic and the food was equally as good.
