“Mother and daughter ride”

Sun Mountain Stables
Reviewed 2 September 2016 via mobile

We arrived at the stables and it was busy but organised. All the horses ready to go. Loved borrowing cowboy boots! Horses are lovely and very easy to ride. Guide was knowledgeable and nice to talk to. My 7 year old daughter was on a big horse who treated her so well. It was a beautiful ride and we saw lakes, mountains and chipmunks! Highly recommended .

My two teenage daughters (17 and 13) went for the hour and a half long trail ride here in July. The location of the property is in a beautiful area with many views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. The staff was incredibly helpful in assisting everyone with getting the best horse for each person and showing them the ropes.The horses were very sweet as well. The only complaint my 13-year-old had was that she could not trot with the horse, which was probably due to young inexperienced riders in the group. Otherwise, this was a beautiful place and a beautiful ride. Their pricing was also very reasonable. And, the stables are part of an entire resort and beautiful lodge that has all of the amenities you could want.

Riding with Debbie at the Sun Mountain Stables is not to be missed for this family! We've done trail rides each year we've visited Winthrop. When we have had a child too young for a group ride we've done a private ride. Private rides are available for more experienced riders too. This year rather than our usual morning ride we tried the Cowboy Dinner. In addition to Debbie and her wrangler's professional welcome and capable leadership on the trail ride, we all enjoyed a very memorable dinner with good cowboy food and campfire music sung by a professional cowboy vocalist and even s'mores! In addition to steak, chicken and hotdogs, moist cornbread and amazing baked beans were served, followed by peach cobbler and vegan chocolate cake. The Sun Mountain area is breaktakingly beautiful and seeing it in the evening, rather than the morning, was a rewarding perspective too.

Took the kids for a morning ride and everyone enjoyed it. The horses were beautiful, well cared for and gentle. The gals who headed up our group were wonderful and engaging chatting joyfully. The kids loved learning about horse personalities and how they are as different as people.

This is a great starter ride for any age. I thought the dinner trip sounded like a wonderful experience.

We loved our chuck wagon supper. Our 4 year old daughter got to "drive" the wagon under Cowboy Bob's encouraging and patient tutelage. Her 8 year old brother rode his own horse with guidance from Red and her very kind team of wranglers. Dinner was abundant and delicious with plenty of choices for different palates. A beautiful spot and an unforgettable evening.
