Answer by  JJP (360)

You may only ride with a special ranch permit. I would check with dude/horse ranches in the area to see if you can go on a horse excursion

Actually you can! They have guided tours with people from horse farms. I doubt however you could ride one along the rocky trail on your own.

You can do anything you put your mind to. It is a matter of if they will allow it or not. If you have to actually ask if it is allowed or not, then you probably shouldn't be doing it int he first place. Also, if they allowed you to, then there would be a sign.

Horses and ponies, as well as other pack animals, can travel about 80% of the park trails, although ome may be closed due to weather or seasonal conditions. Traveling off the trails or cross country is not allowed. You can bring your own horse, or you rent a horse at one of the stables inside or outside the park.

Yes, you can ride horses in the Rocky Mountain National Park. The park has over 260 miles available for horse use. You can either ride your own or you can hire horses with guides. There are two places on the east side where horses with guides can be hired and several different locations outside the park as well.
