Plan Your Ride

Located in the Yampa River Valley, Steamboat is a great base for a family vacation with a number of activities available in the area for young and old. In addition to horseback riding, you can enjoy the natural hot springs, hiking, biking, camping, museums, canoeing and river rafting.

Adjacent to the rodeo grounds in Steamboat Springs, Steamboat Springs Stables offers horseback riding on scenic mountain trails. A perfect activity for friends, family and groups, the 1 and 2-hour rides give you an opportunity to enjoy the clean mountain air and explore this incredibly beautiful area of Colorado.

Come with your friends or family and enjoy a full day. There is camping, cheap hotels, lodges and more near the stables for you to stay at. At the stables you can spend an hour or two horseback riding on the mountain trails. Located next to the stable is the alpine sled: ride the ski lift to the top and hop on the wild ride down the mountain on the luge-style sled that follows a winding track 2,400 feet to the bottom. Rodeo grounds is right across the road from the stables; come and ride on a Friday or Saturday and then stay to attend the evening rodeo (mid June through late August). The close proximity to other activities makes Steamboat Stables an ideal start for a fun-filled day with friends or family.
