The Wranglers at Sage Outfitters pride themselves on offering a truly unique ride every time they head out of their Horse Pasture. They rarely stick to trails and avoid riding nose to tail like many other rides tend to be and the terrain is absolutely breath taking with massive views of Castle Peak Mountain and the Vail Valley.
Lakota Guides offers group horseback rides through stunning meadows and rugged mountains. This is not your everyday head to tail trail ride. At times you may fan out and ride abreast with wranglers instructing you to control your horse rather than just sit on it. We pride ourselves in taking care of our horses because they take care of us & our guests!
Grab your cowboy and cowgirls boots and hats and hit the trails of Vail on a horse!
