Winter is upon us and now is the best time to come and enjoy the splendor of the snow capped Rocky Mountains. Join us for a trail ride on one of the historic trails followed by a steaming cup of hot chocolate or coffee around the warmth of our wood stove.

Now that the holidays are over, Estes Park Horseback Riding is offering a new and exciting way to spend time with your family and friends. Imagine riding a horse, with gently falling snow cascading down, and you, riding that horse to the top of a mountain! The view alone is worth the trip. You will have breathtaking views of the entire Estes Valley and commanding views of the snow capped Continental Divide and Rocky Mountain National Park. The historic trails are covered in snow and it will take you back in time as you experience the west as it was meant to be viewed. O'Dell's trail rides begin at the stables at the historic Elkhorn Lodge, where we are frequently visited by elk, deer, bobcat, and coyote.
Don't miss the opportunity of a lifetime! Ask about our "Hot Chocolate trail ride", it is our most popular horseback riding event this season. Call and make your reservations soon!

Come ride with us year round at the historic Elkhorn Stables. The trails and mountains are beautiful with snow on them. Dress in layers because we might have snow falling, sun shining, or wind blowing.
Estes Park Horse Back Rides are offered 365 days a year, weather permitting. We trail ride every day unless the weather conditions make it impossible to go out. Just because there's snow on the ground, doesn't mean we can't have a great time out there! In fact, winter is one of the most beautiful seasons here in Estes Park - with scenic trail rides overlooking the snow capped Rocky Mountains. You will want to dress in layers, which ever season you plan to join us because the Colorado sun can be very warm - even in the winter - but the wind can pick up at a moment's notice. Layers are also good for summer rides. For summer, a sun hat is nice, but not necessary. We are lucky to get a lot of bright sun all year round, so sunscreen is always recommended. You will definitely want to bring your camera! There will be plenty of opportunities during your scenic trail ride for mountain photography. You might even see elk, mule deer, coyotes, bighorn sheep, bobcats or bears during your ride!
