CLOSED - We are closed for the winter season and will be reopening again in May 2018.


Cowpoke Corner Corral is conveniently located, yet off the beaten path, just 3 miles from downtown Estes Park at the edge of Roosevelt National Forest at Glacier Lodge on Hwy 66 ( the road to the YMCA). The stable is nestled behind Glacier Lodge at the base of Giant Track Mountain. The trails wind their way up the mountain eventually reaching the saddle on our 3 hour ride.

Rides Available at Cowpoke Corner Corral:

Your kids will have a blast with our pony rides. They will want to come back to ride again and again. It?s the perfect place to introduce your little ones to horseback riding and farm animals! Our ponies are well maintained, all rides are hand led, making the rides as safe and fun as possible. Appropriate ages for these rides are 2-7 years. Young children may need an adult or parent to walk alongside them. Stop in for a 10 minute or 30 minute ride. We do have a weight limit for our ponies, and any child over the age of 4 is able to ride by themselves 'in tow' behind the wrangler on our trails. (You must be UNDER 50 pounds to ride the ponies.)
