Horseback Riding/Wagon & Hayrides

Guided horseback riding and wagon and hayrides are great family activities.

Horseback riding in Colorado is one of the best ways to get out into the back country. There are an abundance of opportunities throughout Winter Park and the surrounding valley to go for a trail ride and admire our mountain landscape from horseback. Choose from one of our top companies below with expertly guided trail rides to help you find your “inner cowboy.”
