So you want to take your family horseback riding in the gorgeous and majestic mountains of Colorado.
We have some suggestions on how to make that happen for you! One of our favorite stables and one that’s close to town. Town meaning Beaver Creek, Vail, Avon and Edwards is Beaver Creek Stables.
It’s right up in Beaver creek and is perfect for a ride with top views, but it’s location is perfect, and you can do full or half day rides.
They have 1 hour, 2 hours or a Picnic ride. Also offered is the all day ride to Beaver Lake that includes deli-style lunch and fishing equipment for the lake.
Extra fun and options include Sunset Dinner Rides to Beano’s cabin on horseback or wagon.
Beaver Creek Stables offers shorter rides, giving you the opportunity for exploration Beaver Creek Village. Depending on your ride times, there are numerous lunch and dinner spots or do a little shopping and if you are feeling ambitious go for a bike ride or a hike.
Activities galore for an entire family up in the “beav” as the locals call it. Ok, swell, but let’s stick to the horseback riding.
One of the main reasons, other than the views we like Beaver Creek Stables is they have ponies for kids, 6 and under, which parents can lead around the corral as long as they want. That’s a fantastic feature not available at many stables.
Lucky for you they have a coupon for a Free Pony Ride and Free Children’s Cowboy Hat. Yes, you read correctly free ride free hat. I guess we will see you there!

The other option available is Back Country Rides that travel through the White River national Forest. 2 Choices of 3 hour or 4 hour ride- includes lunch. This is a lifetime opportunity!
Why drive to Aspen when you can ride a horse! We are serious; you do have that option with Bearcat Stables. A true experience of the old west experience. You will be shocked by the scenery on this trek.
