(Summer)- Offering a variety of horseback riding, from 1, 1.5, and 2 hour rides that are great for all levels including beginners. Leaving the barn you will head for a short tour through the Bearden Homestead and head up the trail system for views of the New York Range towards Beaver Creek, Bellyache Ridge and on a clear day out to the peaks of the Gore Range near Vail. Explore the White River National forest from the saddle in our 3 and 4 hour backcountry rides and see the entire Vail Valley from the forest above- great for intermediate and advanced riders. Our signature trip from Vail to Aspen is a world famous authentic Colorado experience! 4 days traveling via horse back from Vail to Aspen- there is nothing else like it!Children under 6 years can enjoy pony rides at the stables. All horseback riding children must be 6 years and older to participate. Bearcat Stables is open 7 days a week May-October (Winter)-Our sleigh ride and dinner is the Vail Valley's most authentic dining experience. Allow our horse-drawn sleigh to pull you through the snow covered fields while you enjoy a hot beverage and warm blanket to snuggle under. Dinner follows the sleigh ride in Bearcat's Cabin, a historic Vail Valley homestead. Stay and enjoy s'mores by the fire, and a signature cocktail from Doc's Bar. Great for families of all ages. Sleigh rides only from 3-4.30pm, sleigh ride with dinner seating's at 5.30 and 7.30 Tuesday-Saturday. Dec-Mar Bearcat Stables is the Vail Valley's most unique and authentically Colorado event venue.

The first ride for my two girls and the guides took plenty of time to take care of them. At the start, one of my girls was in tears and by the end she was “driving” all by herself. A GREAT confidence builder. Thank you.
