Prospector Ride (2 hour) $85

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

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!

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!

True Grit (4 hour) $170

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

We start off heading straight up the Old Horse Thief Trail on a ride to remember….. The Pinnacle of this fun filled adventure is a panoramic explosion on top of the secret Crystal Flats. This is truly a ride you won’t forget. So remember “If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride” ( Stories will be provided.)
