Horseback Riding

horseback riding in mountains in fall

Horseback riding in Vail and Beaver Creek is a breathtaking experience, especially during the summer wildflower season or golden autumn. Not only do you get to take in the sights at a slower pace, but you get to enjoy the experience of connecting with a beautiful horse. It's easy to picture the bygone Wild West era while you look out over the Gore Range and Continental Divide and listen to expert wranglers share historic stories.
