    I used to have a horse when I was younger, and I haven’t ridden on one since he passed away about 15 or so years ago. Riding him was always such a relaxing thing to do and I miss it sometimes – I’d really love to visit here some day and take a ride through the trails – a dinner ride sounds fantastic!

    A dinner ride sounds great and the price is so reasonable! I haven’t ridden a horse in so long it is
    crazy…but to take a ride and then have a dinner while I was out …wow, that would be pretty cool. Breckenridge, CO sounds like a pretty sweet place to take a vacation.

    I love horses so much and all these activities sound like so much fun! The prices all sound much more reasonable than whats available here in Cali too. I’m also glad to hear that small kids can ride their own horse on the trails, I think it’s great to encourage the little ones to get comfortable with riding early on.
