During scenic trail rides groups traverse peaks 9 and 10 on the Tenmile Range above Breckenridge. Along the way, they ford rivers, glimpse beaver ponds, and drink in panoramic views of the continental divide. Rides leave the barn every hour on the hour, except noon, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Children 3 and younger can ride double with an adult for $30. Dinner rides take horseback voyagers on the same 1.5-hour trail ride, but end at the stable’s all-you-can-eat dinner buffet for a one-hour meal. Riders leave the barn at 4 p.m., and are asked to arrive 15 minutes early to sign in.
Breckenridge Stables' herd of more than 100 steeds trots along for scenic trail rides, Western-style lessons, and historical tours of the town. As horses deftly navigate the Tenmile Range, guides point out local wildlife along the continental divide, the imaginary line drawn when Paul Bunyan and Babe the Big Blue Ox broke up. During colder months, Breckenridge Stables' custom-built mountain sleighs keep passengers snuggly during sleigh rides as a team of belgian, clydesdale, or percheron horses canters through the Colorado air.
