5 Day Trips
Colorado Great Sand Dune horseback trips. This wilderness journey is for both experienced and beginning riders. The horses are sure-footed, no nonsense and willing. We’ll assign you your own horse and teach you how to saddle, picket and care for it. Mountain riding techniques are taught as we travel. Our philosophy is simple; the more you know about your horse and equipment, the more you will enjoy your vacation.
Although the distance we’ll travel is not excessive, the riding is adventurous along steep sand dune trails with spectacular scenery. We’ll share our extensive knowledge of geology, plants, wildlife, and history of the area. Those who have never ridden before particularly enjoy this trip as an excellent learning experience. Advanced riders enjoy the additional hands-on experience and scenic country of this little-known area of Colorado.
At Great Sand Dunes National Park, you’ll see a unique sight in North America – the largest sand dunes in the Western Hemisphere! In addition, we’ll take you to remote mountain valleys, ride past old west ghost towns, and allow you time to play in mountain creeks and waterfalls. Maybe we’ll even see some Bison on your Colorado Great Sand Dunes horseback trip!
