Winter is a special time in the Rockies, with crisp air and an almost ethereal beauty clinging to the the snowy peaks. Our Estes Park Stable and Snow Mountain Ranch (Winter Park/Granby) offer trail rides throughout the winter, and Snow Mountain Ranch provides fun-filled sleigh rides (depending on snowfall) complete with your choice of dinner or hot cocoa. Let our human and four-hoofed guides show you the splendor of the place we call home. Learn More

My husband and I took a one hour ride on the 8th and I want to compliment everyone who was so very helpful. My husband has MS and the guys were so wonderful at helping him on and off the horse. He had been a little nervous but he is so glad he took the ride. Ranger and his horse Rueger were great at entertaining us with information and cowboy stories. We were celebrating our 51st anniversary with a couple nights in Estes, a nice "escape" from Longmont, and this was the highlight of our stay and meant so very much to me. So, a big THANK YOU :)Linda H., Colorado
I rode for the first time in 1960 at Sombero Ranch in Estes and continued as I grew up. I moved away and have now live close to Estes again. I wanted my daughter to experience a trail ride like I did growing up in the village of Estes Park. It was her 29th birthday and we had a wonderful time. Tim, our wrangler did a fantastic job. There were 4 of us and we ranged in experience from Beginner to Experience riders and we all felt very comfortable. Tim was there to help anyone who need assistance. Great Job, Tim and Thank You!!!! It was as great as I remembered! Awesome, Awesome experience for all of us.Rhonda, Colorado
The staff was extremely helpful when I arrived a little late, got me a horse right away, gave me good instructions and got me to the group of riders. The ride was splendid and the scenery beautiful. Kathleen was both knowledgeable about the area and about all of the horses, and she has a wonderful personality and good sense of humor. Jasmine was a delight. I would definitely recommend your stables to anyone interested in riding, and I would love to ride Jasmine again.Erin S., Indiana
