1 Hour Experience 


On this out and back ride you will be guided through the beautiful San Juan National Forest on the back of a gentle horse or mule, selected just for you, by our experienced wranglers. Aspen groves, incredible mountain views and towering pine trees will be just some of the sights you will see. 

2 Hour Experience

Our most popular ride! We cover a lot of great terrain on this ride that includes walking through luscious aspen groves and catching beautiful views of the Twilight Mountains in addition to crossing Mill creek. This ride is a perfect taste of all the beauty the San Juans have to offer. Ride time is about one hour and forty-five minutes.

Half Day Ride 

A favorite ride of the Buck's Livery regular riders. The half day ride departs at 8:30 a.m. and you will revel in the beauty that this adventurous ride provides.


Down switchbacks and through immense aspen groves, you will arrive at scenic overlooks that truly take your breath away. 

Special Ride 

Unique to Buck's Livery, this guided horseback adventure is designed for advanced riders only. This ride is about an hour and half with a faster pace than our traditional rides. A maximum of 4 people are allowed at one time. 

*Please note excessive rainfall can effect the trails and our ability to offer this ride* 

Private Ride

Enjoy a beautiful two hour ride with just your group and a wrangler! Sometimes people want to ride with just their family/friends and we get that. A private ride gives guests that opportunity. Lots of chances for pictures on this ride as well! A favorite of Bucks Livery! There is no limit of people on a private ride.

"Will You Marry Me" Ride

“The Proposal" Horseback Ride to Boyce Lake overlook or the Needles Mountains view offer an ideal backdrop for this memorable occasion. We will take you on a 2-3 hour horseback ride up to one of our many overlooks and beautiful views in the background.


We can custom design the proposal style of your choice. There is not a more romantic way to get engaged! 


$450 per couple includes the horseback ride and photos taken
A 20% gratuity will be added to this ride.
