Aspen Snowmass horseback guides supply a variety of horseback riding trips from one hour rides on gentle trails to multiple day backcountry adventures. Guiding companies lead horseback riders into the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness, in the East Snowmass Creek area near Willow Lake, in the Hunter Fryingpan Wilderness, in and around Lenado, and in wilderness areas in Old Snowmass and Capitol Peak. Many outfitters and guiding companies offer short rides with a duration of one or two hours, and these short trips are excellent for novice horseback riders. Another unique horseback riding trip in Aspen are the morning and sunset rides, during which riders explore the natural beauty of Aspen Snowmass at sunrise or sunset. Some morning and sunset rides even offer a rustic breakfast or dinner meal.

For adventurers seeking out a longer horseback riding trip, local guiding companies provide half day horseback rides or full day adventures. There are also overnight trips, some of which are multiple day trips that truly allow for an exploration the wilderness in and around Aspen. On these overnight trips, horseback riding parties camp out like true western cowboys with tents and meals prepared over an open fire. Though, guiding companies deliver unparalleled service, so the experience is the epitome of backcountry comfort and luxury.

For young children who may not be able to enjoy the longer wilderness rides, local guiding companies offer pony rides at the base of Buttermilk Mountain and at the Snowmass Village Rodeo Grounds.
