The place doesn't GPS by address. I wasn't expecting the mandatory guide fee that wasn't previously mentioned or listed anywhere upping the cost $70. The trail was flat and slow going, fine for a first-timer, but pretty uninspiring. The scenery was mostly people walking their dogs in the neighboring park. I wouldn't go back.

While visiting Denver in late June, my 11 year old daughter and I wanted to go on a trail ride. We are both experience western style riders, but we understand that a trail ride is just that. We weren't expecting to trot or canter, so we were not disappointed in the pace of the ride. First, the 12 Mile Stable... More

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!

Sometimes a "staycation" is the best option. So this spring break I decided to take my son riding at #12milestables. It all started out good. We called the morning of and in about an hour, received a callback and an afternoon ride time. Informed to show up at least 20 minutes early, we were there even before that. We signed... More

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 didnt have enough time to manage my studies and riding. I was craving to ride in... More

Was going to ride horses with my husband had paid the 100.00 for the 1 1/2 hour ride. When they approached and said they were not comfortable with putting me on one of their horses even one of the bigger ones. I stand five foot two and weight 260 lbs. I know I am fat but I thought horses could... More

The horses were sweet. The ride was decent (except that you hear the high way traffic for the majority of the ride). No water... all dried up. What I would really recommend is some more customer service skills. With the exception of Alyssa (who was pleasant and talked a little), we were barely spoken to for the majority of the... More

The people at the stable were very helpful. I haven't rode a horse in over 45 years. They picked a very nice horse for me and had steps so that I could get on. We first went an arena so they could check to see if I could control the horse. The ride through Cherry Creek park was great. I... More

I board at 12 Mile..... love it! Staff is great and caring. My horse loves it here. Not sure about comments made by others. Matt and the rest of the staff is always helpful and responsive. They set up dates for the Vet to come out and do shots and worming. That's great! I've seen them stay with other boarders... More

12 mile stables is a wonderful place to ride. I take lessons there and I adore it. All horses are safe and sweet. the trainers/trail ride leaders are kind as well and do very well on matching you up with the right horse. I would recommend doing the sunset ride. Be prepared to have your mind-blown.
