Ride prices and descriptions

Don’t let the name fool ya!! This is a great ride for all levels ages 7 to 107..

Prospector Ride (2 hour) $75

This is our most popular ride for ages 7 to 107.

We start off at the Bachelor’s Stable.

This ride will be on one of two trails.

1.

• Memphis Trail will take you back in time to the mining days of the old west. This trail meanders through Gold Mountain and provides all visitors with the most dramatic experience Ouray has to offer. The landscape changes in this adventure with every step your horse takes. Words cannot explain what this ride has to offer, so be sure to bring your camera!

2.

• Ash Trail is an easy going stroll into the backcountry of Ouray. You begin riding up an old road used to cart gold and silver ore from deep within Gold Mountain! Following along Dexter Creek as you ride by rushing falls and babbling pools, you will find yourself passing through what remains of the Ghost town of Ash. Shortly after crossing over the rushing stream you arrive at a picturesque destination for a photo opportunity on horseback. This is an easy going ride to enjoy!

This is a great ride for the adventurer ages 10 to 110

We start off at the Bachelor’s Stable. Then head straight up the Old Horse Thief Trail on a ride to remember…..
