Wat je gaat doen

Start the day out by meeting us outside the entrance to the historic Boulder City Horseman's Association and being escorted to meet our horses before we lead them out to the desert riding area. We provide healthy horse treats for you to use to introduce yourselves to our pony and our horses. Once you have made the connection with a horse or two, we can give recommendations for which horse you might like to ride. We will then lead the horses to a riding area in the neighboring desert where we show you how to tack up, saddle up, and properly mount and ride your horse safely. Before we go further out into the desert we will first assess the confidence and experience of both horse and rider. For children and novice riders, we will first lead you and your horse around while we explain the basics, and gradually give you and your horse more freedom to ride on your own. Once you are confident enough to venture further into the desert, we can begin doing some "off-road" exploring. More than just a trail ride because we rarely stay on a trail or go the same route. Upon return from the ride you may, or may not, wish to stay beyond the two hours. "If" you opt to stay longer, your assistance with the daily tasks of grooming and caring for the horses before they go back to their stables will be greatly appreciated.

My wife Karen and I own six horses and have had horses for 12 years. We own the DoubleDown Corral located in Historic Boulder City Nevada. We are both passionate about the promotion and encouragement of interest in horses, their proper care and welfare, and equine activities of both a working and recreational nature. Karen and I are excited for an opportunity to share our horses with others, as well as the unique terrain and desert trails that border our corral.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Only members and accompanied guests are allowed onto the Association property. Therefore, once you have met the horses we will exit to the neighboring desert. Expect to engage gully's, washes, hills, ravines, and all types of desert terrain for a truly unique and one-of-a-kind experience. In other words, this is not your typical boring trail ride where the horses know the way.

Mark was very welcoming and took time to make us feel comfortable with the horses. Mark shared his knowledge and love for his horses. Great Experience and so much enjoyment

Mark & Karen were fantastic, even before the ride. Mark called right away to discuss the possible rain. Sure enough, there was a downpour when we arrived (late). He had already saddled the horses but offered to fully refund, or reschedule to the next day, which we did. Once we returned the next day, they matched us up perfectly with the right horse for each one of us. They worked carefully with our nine-year old daughter, including an initial training session in the arena. She gained confidence quickly, as did the rest of us. Mark carefully led our daughter throughout the trail (and off trail) ride, including many portions where she was able to ride without being tethered. We saw some wildlife, including a coyote. The horses were obviously well-trained, and well cared for. After the ride we went on a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon, which we all loved--so much so that at the end of the day, I was surprised when our daughter said that the horseback ride was her favorite adventure of the day. We can't say enough good things about this wonderful couple.

I would highly recommend this experience. They are very friendly, they help you choose the right horse. It is a very small group so you get to know them and the other riders you are with. You get to choose the direction the ride goes and they stay within your comfort level. I will be returning to ride again.

This is not a trail ride. You will be in control of your well trained horse. Terrain is flat or hilly. Some background riding helps. My daughter was thrilled to gallop ... I opted for the saunter mode....Tazz would gladly go faster....connect with your horse commands early, be the boss. Love BC btw and the spread is big.
