Horseback Riding

Saddle up for a journey back into the old west and enjoy the majestic views of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains by horseback. Breckenridge is home to thousands of acres of meadows, trails and woodlands to help create your perfect ride. Catering to all levels of riding ability and including options from hourly rides to half day trips, you will certainly be set up for an experience to remember.

Our resort works with numerous ranches to offer you the best experience you can get.

Platte Ranch

Situated approximately 40 minutes from the town of Breckenridge, Platte Ranch offers a true Western ranching experience. Experienced guides take the lead, offering expert advice on riding techniques yet still giving each guest the freedom to advance at their own pace on the horses with no nose-to-tail trail rides. Families have the option to engage in a two-hour, half-day or sunset dinner ride at the Platte Ranch. Visitors will surely mark this experience down as one of their favorites!

Gore Range Outfitters

With no more than 12 riders in each group, Gore Range Outfitters provides an unparalleled experience for riders when embarking through the Colorado mountainside on horseback. Offering one-hour, two-hour or half-day trips with a picnic lunch.

Breckenridge Stables

Located just next to Peak 8, Breckenridge Stables offers guests a convenient afternoon activity in the backdrop of the Tenmile Range. Families can enjoy an hour-and-a-half riding trip together or improve their riding technique with a group or a private lesson.

Rusty Spur Ranch

This fantastic service offers a variety of experiences for our guests. Riders can bring the whole family for a one-, two-, or three-hour ride on a 10,000-acre working cattle ranch. In addition, for those visitors with a little more ambition, Rusty Spur is the place to be! Sign up for a four-hour actual Western cattle drive and enjoy lunch with the ranchers, or test your abilities with the hour-and-a-half outlaw ride, where a riding test is required.

Two Below Zero

Take in the breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains with an old-fashioned wagon ride topped off with a western-style family dinner. Before dinner, don’t forget to engage in some family fun at the game corral, playing roping games, horseshoes, cowboy golf and bean bag toss. After a snack of biscuits and honey, the dinner bell will set off the evening with a BBQ family cookout and a Wild West show featuring the Jackman Brothers.
