Vail Stables

Conveniently located 1 mile NW of downtown Vail, Colorado,

our rustic, little outfit offers something for everyone.

Claim your all-access pass through the beautiful backcountry of the Rockies on horseback.  The trails are truly awe-inspiring with wide-open scenic views, and dense Aspen glades with lush green undergrowth that includes giant Cow Parsnip with their large, delicate flower. 

The rides are a mix of adventure, relaxation and quiet for the ultimate horse experience in the mountains including wildlife sightings, singing birds, lush green Aspen glades with their quaking leaves and blankets of wildflowers under blue, blue Vail skies.  The horses are gentle, yet perky.  The guides are knowledgable and quiet, yet engaged.
