TX2 Hour Guided Tour – SUMMER

Experience a Horseback Ride like no other in the area.  The Wranglers at Sage pride themselves on offering a truly unique ride every time they head out of our Horse Pasture.  They rarely stick to trails and avoid riding nose to tail like many other rides tend to be.

The terrain is absolutely breath taking with massive views of Castle Peak Mountain and the Vail Valley.  Ride through beautiful fields of Sage and Juniper, thick Aspen and Pine Groves.  Many of the rides travel near several of our Mountain Lakes and Streams that are situated on our Private Mountain.

This is a true Mountain Ride in which you will gain elevation and with that gain views!  And because our Mountain is completely private you will have literally thousands upon thousands of acres of open space surrounding you with no other distractions.

Sage has several locations throughout the State it is very important that you use the link below to get to our Horse Stables.

The stables are located near the town of Wolcott
