Crested Butte Horseback Riding

In Less Sweat, Summer & Fall by

Become a cowboy or cowgirl for an hour, a day, or even overnight with Crested Butte horseback rides that hearken back to the days of the old west. From the saddle, take in beautiful mountain wilderness and visit trails inaccessible to motorized vehicles. Equestrian activities start around $40-$60 per person for shorter rides.

Crested Butte and the Gunnison Valley on horseback is like no other. Whether you ride in the summer, fall, or winter the landscapes accessed by horse will absolutely be worth it.

During ski season, Fantasy Ranch offers a 30 minute sleigh ride down in Almont. The private one-horse open sleigh tours depart most mornings from Almont Resort located on highway 135 half way to Gunnison at 10:00a.m. The sleigh easily holds 4 adults and 2 small children. Cost: $110 per sleigh.
