HORSEBACK RIDING & WILDERNESS PACK TRIPS

“Horseback riding Colorado with OutWest Guides is a treat. Located near Glenwood Springs, Aspen, Breckenridge, the Redstone Castle, and Vail. We ride into the Maroon Bells/Snowmass Wilderness near Marble. Our motto, “The best horses, the best guides, and above all, the best scenery!” This has been proven time and again to thousands of happy horseback riders.”

COLORADO DAY RIDES AND HOUR HORSEBACK RIDES

“We offer one-hour horseback rides for families with small children, two-hour horseback rides, three hour rides, half day and full day horseback riding into our gorgeous wilderness as well as multi-day Montana-style wilderness horse pack trips. If you have ridden with us before and want to check out a different trial, please let us know and we can introduce you to a new area and many great views.”

  “Riders must be at least 7 years old!”

MONTANA-STYLE HORSE PACK TRIPS AND WILDERNESS ADVENTURES

“Our overnight wilderness pack trips are an expedition into the past, with some of the comforts of the present day. We set up spacious, comfortable wall tents in our wilderness camp locations, then ride in to the base camp for an extended stay.

You can enjoy watching the plentiful wildlife, go fishing for brook trout in the creek winding through camp, go on a lengthy trail ride, photograph the bounty of wildflowers, or simply relax on a lawn chair and read a book. We provide all meals. You need bring only your personal gear and a sleeping bag.” 

QUALITY TRAIL HORSES FROM OUTSTANDING BLOODLINES

“We feature Missouri foxtrotters, quarter horses, paints, and Arabians. We take excellent care of our horses, and you’ll notice the difference. Unlike most outfitters, we’re not looking for those “bottom of the barrel,” broken-down old nags. Our horses are young, fit, strong, lively, and ready to go. Our horses are gentle enough for any beginning rider, and will patiently carry them up and down the mountain. Experienced riders, however, will delight in our horses’ responsiveness and light touch. We also have quality trail horses for sale.”

WILDLIFE VIEWING

“The wildlife in the Marble, Colorado area is astounding. We commonly see elk and mule deer on our Colorado horseback rides, but we see a wide array of creatures from time to time, including blue grouse, ptarmigan, all manner of flickers and woodpeckers, jays, golden eagles and bald eagles, ducks, geese, redtailed hawks, goshawks, and other raptors; bighorn sheep; fox and coyotes; and even a rare lynx was recently spotted near Marble.” 

PRIVACY AND QUALITY

“There’s a reason why the Aspen Highlands Ritz-Carlton Club, the St. Regis Aspen Resort, the Roaring Fork Club, and many other premiere resorts send their horseback riding guests to us at OutWest Guides. Not only do we have the best horses and the best guides, you’ll rarely see another person on our day rides! If you’ve ever been on one of those “industrial rides” in Aspen or Snowmass on a tired, skinny horse with 30 other riders as you plod along on a gravel road through the ski lifts and condos, you’ll never go back.

We rarely take more than 5 people in one group, unless a large family or group wants to ride together. You’ll bookmark OutWest Guides as your new favorite place to ride.  We know how to treat our guests, and strive to give you the best service possible.”

COLORADO TROUT FISHING WITH OUTWEST GUIDES

FLY FISHING

“Fly fishing in Colorado is an adventure you’ll always remember. OutWest Guides is located among some of the best fishing in Colorado, and the views on our streams are simply unforgettable. Our fly-fishing instructors put clients onto a wide variety of trout species, including rainbow trout, German brown trout, cutthroat trout, and brook trout.

OutWest Guides is known for top-quality professional guides who specialize in giving first-class instruction for beginning fly-fishers. Have you always wanted to learn to fly-fish? You’ve come to the right place. Our guides start from the ground up, teaching you solid fundamentals so that you’ll have success fishing on your own.”

“You can book an overnight pack trip into the mountains for high-country lake and small stream fishing. You’ll learn dry fly fishing and nymph fishing, the basic fly-fishing knots, hooking and playing a trout, the catch and release ethic, and basic entomology—how to choose a fly to match the hatch. The overnight high-mountain lake and stream trips are either horseback or hiking trips to a fully set-up wilderness camp.”

THE COLORADO SLAM: BROWN, BROOKIE, RAINBOW, CUTTHROAT TROUT

“The Crystal River that flows through Marble offers exciting fishing. Few rivers can offer the opportunity to catch all four major trout species in one day of fishing. We call it the “Colorado Slam”—netting a brook trout, German brown trout, rainbow trout, and cutthroat trout all in the same day on a fly rod. Several of our clients have done it, and many more have had a great time trying!

 We fish the Crystal River around Marble, CO. Where other stretches of public water may get fished literally hundreds of times a year, our waters see very little pressure. Our fish are wild and stout.”
