    I recently hosted my daughters 7th birthday at 12 Mile Stables. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They took the time to educate all of the kids with proper horsemanship before each of their pony rides. The facilities were excellent and there was plenty to keep everyone entertained. I would highly recommend 12 Mile Stables. Their professionalism and the atmosphere they created was beyond exceptional. I cant wait to bring my family back out for a trail ride!

    I don’t know where to begin. I am a horseback rider and show jumper in California. I came to Colorado to spend my spring break over there and I was not riding that much due to the fact that I study engineering so I didn’t have enough time to manage my studies and riding. I was craving to ride in Colorado as the weather is much colder there than California. So I called 12 mile stables to reserve a trail ride. I called them many times and no one picked it up most of the time but I was persistent. A man picked it up and I told him that I want to reserve a trail ride for tomorrow and he said alright. So the next day when we were supposed to go for a trail ride, it was snowing so I was a little bit skeptical as I know most barns close when it is raining or snowing. But that man did not call me to inform me that trail ride was cancelled due to the snowy weather so I went to the barn hoping that I would enjoy a trail ride under the snow. My car almost got stuck in the mud. I saw a girl (Kristina) in her car, I went up to her and I told her that I was supposed to go on a trail ride today. She gave me that stupid look and said “It is snowing, no trail rides today.” For some reason, I kept being persistent and I called that man again and as usual he did not pick it up. I was so angry. I left him a voice mail. Few hours later he called me back and we rescheduled for the next day. The next day, we went to the barn and my brother and I are advanced riders so we asked Kristina if it were possible for us to go trotting and cantering but she refused with rudeness. When she refused, I thought about returning home, but I drove all the way from my cabin in Evergreen (almost 1 hour drive) to just ride a horse. So I told myself that I came here for the horses not for the terrible people of this awful barn. We got on our horses who were so dirty and badly cared for. The horses seemed very tired, lazy, sad and in poor health. During the whole ride Kristina and the other guy never ever talked to me nor my brother. We felt so unwelcome. My brother asked Kristina if he could ride beside me to take the gopro camera from me and she was like “NO!!” Period. She didn’t even say it in a kind way! For the first time in my entire life that we came across people who claim that they love horses and be so rude and impolite! The moment I hopped on that horse, I just wanted to be done with that trail ride as soon as possible because of the horrible attitude that these people showed towards us! I don’t know if they did that because they were racist (bunch of rednecks) as my brother and I are not Americans. If there was a negative rating, I would absolutely give it to them. Overall, don’t ever consider stopping by their terrible barn. Even the prices for the so-called trail ride are so expensive AND YOU WILL NOT ENJOY IT (boring as hell even for first time riders). I would not recommend any aspect of this place to any person. AVOID THIS Horrible BARN AND ITS MEAN PEOPLE. I pity their horses to be owned by such a disrespectful owner!

    We’ve been riding at 12 Mile stables for the past year. We’ve had a wonderful experience every time! My son has enjoyed the week long summer camps and we’ve all done trail rides as a family. I would highly recommend this stable to anyone. It is very obvious they truly care about the horses, safety and clients. Wonderful place!

    My friends and I decided we wanted to go for a trail ride and chose 12 Mile Stables. We went on the 2 hour “Cowboy Ride” and loved it. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The horses were great and you cant beat the views. I would highly recommend 12 Mile Stables for anyone. I am a beginer and it was nice to have some one take their time and explain things to me. My friends and I are looking forward to another trail ride. Thank you 12 Mile Stables.

    Called ahead, and they gave me the wrong closing time. Next time called ahead again, and told them I had a 2 yr old – they said no problem. When we arrived, guy at the stable said 2 was too young and refused a ride (min age was higher). Obviously a very poorly run business.
