Dao House Stable at Aspen Lodge Resort & Spa

Enjoy an authentic Rocky Mountain experience on stunning trails directly accessible year round from the woodland grounds of the Aspen Lodge Resort & Spa. Explore the Tahosa Valley, Roosevelt National Forest or Rocky Mountain National Park on a horseback adventure scheduled as you like it. Our expert wranglers are seasoned and intuitive horse-to-rider matchmakers. They will cook your sunrise breakfast or cowboy supper and flavor your horseback or wagon experience with spirited insights, history, stories, and scenic vistas only true cowboys can share! 


Dao House Stable is located just seven view-packed miles from the center of Estes Park. Our unique, serene setting—out-of-town and rested between the majestic Longs Peak and Twin Sisters—is the supreme place to embark on a truly memorable ride. Relax in the saddle and delight in spectacular scenery without interruption from “civilization” on the trail. From your first moments at the barn to each joyful end to your horseback, wagon, carriage or sleigh ride, Livery staff has genuine western hospitality and your remembrance in mind. You will dismount recharged and refreshed, and may just carry some gems of cowboy wisdom all the way home.

The Livery staff extends a warm and cordial welcome to riders of all ages. There is no place better than Colorado…it has the most beautiful scenery for horseback rides in the world. We’d love to see you. Come up and take a ride!


“The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a man”
   - Old Cowboy adage

As you come upon the barn, the wranglers and their posse of neighborhood children who help care for the horses will greet you with a hearty welcome. They will tell you a bit about the horses and their personalities. The Livery Manager will give you the ole’ cowboy eyeball and ask you about your experiences on horseback.  Then he will select just the right horse and adjust the saddle for your ride. Off onto the trail you will go, and sooner than you think it will happen: the world will slip away on the gentle breezes dancing through the aspens all around you. The sweet pine essence will calm your spirit, and through the trees you will see the mountains rising high against the brilliant blue sky. It will be nothing less than a poetic experience with real cowboys as your guides.

Sleigh & Wagon Rides

The Aspen Lodge Resort & Spa runs horse drawn wagon and sleigh rides through our picturesque evergreen forests. When there is insufficient snow to run a sleigh, we use our wagon. Our wonderful Belgian horses, complete with sleigh bells, will whisk you away though the woods on your very own alpine adventure.
