Transport yourself back into a time gone by and experience Breck by horseback. Choose from trail rides through Breck’s sprawling trail network (very Last of the Mohicans) or think more Little Home on the Prairie with open range rides north of Breckenridge.
Trail rides are provided through Breckenridge Stables, last 1.5 hours and explore the beautiful scenery between Peaks 9 and 10 on the Ten Mile Range above Breckenridge Ski Resort. You will experience river crossings, beaver ponds and breathtaking panoramic views of the continental divide. With more than 100 horses, guides are able to match each rider to a horse based on ability and experience. This is also a great trip for younger children in the group. Breakfast and dinner rides are also available on weekends.
For those looking for more wide open spaces and want to view the beauty of Colorado's wilderness by horseback, check out The Rusty Spurr Ranch. This remote location has been preserved so that visitors can spot the same wildlife and landscape that the first settlers discovered during the 19th century. It’s not uncommon to encounter deer, elk, antelope and other large ga
me during the rides.
