Reservations were easy and they were ready to go when we arrived. This is an organization that takes its horseback riding seriously. The animals are clearly well cared for and well trained. We opted for the 2 1/2 hour tour since we don't usually ride. We rode through Aspen groves, Lodge Pole pine forests filled with moss and lichen, abandoned... More

We spent 2 days on horseback with Tom from Half-moon Packing scouting new locations for the upcoming hunting season. Tom was very accommodating and very knowledgable of the areas we were shown. Looking forward for the hunting season to begin.

Our party of 13 chose to stay local to Leadville Co. for our horseback riding experience, and unfortunately we had some good and bad. Keiley should always be customer facing as she was a good communicator, professional and very friendly. Tom on the other hand has a very abrasive personality and even my 14 year old daughter commented on how... More

My husband and I went on a half day horseback riding trip and our guide Hailey was perfect. We were the only two guests on the trip so it was even better having a private tour, I guess it pays to go on a Monday morning! We got there, we signed a paper, got a quick lesson and off we... More

I have taken many rides with halfmoon packing and loved them all. The horses are very responsive and well maintained.. They are not trying to eat all the time. The scenery is breathtaking and the guides are very knowledgable.. Tom is the real deal. I highly recommend this adventure!!

Ok, first off I've owned and ridden horses for 30 years- most commercial riding stables have elderly, half crippled horses for beginners that I hate to see even being used. NOT this place! Excellent horses, great people, and the trail ride was beautiful. I had a 12 year old and 2 adults and they all got matched with appropriate horses... More

We arrived at this site on time. The guide/owner was 1 hr. late. The whole place looks unorganized and is a mess. Plan to wait; don't schedule anything else that day.

Don't leave Leadville without enjoying a horse ride with Halfmoon. We had a large group that ranged in ages from 7 to 69. We felt safe and well taken care of by 2 lovely guides. This is not an ordinary nose to tail ride. We traveled up and down some steep terrain, through groves of aspen trees, and peeked inside... More

All day ride. Our guide Ashley was super. She made sure our kids (10 & 12) had a great time. Tom let one of our kids go on a mule (at her request). The views were out of this world. Lunch was good. Horses were friendly, responsive, and smarter than us. We will be back to do this again. Don't... More

The personnel were extremely friendly and quite entertaining. They offered both horseback and wagon rides. Two of us rode horseback and two rode in the wagon. Snow-capped peaks were around us. Unforgettable!!
