Meet the Wranglers

The wranglers, also called guides, who work at Beaver Creek Stables love sharing their passion for horses and horseback riding with our guests.  Customer sevice is a top priority, along with safety and fun!  A few of the team grew up in the valley, some have been in the valley for years, and others have come from afar. Either way, the wranglers love life in the mountains, and sharing that with the fun people who visit. The diversity of backgrounds strengthens the teamwork mentality of the wranglers.  Everyone works hard in order to provide the best experience possible for our guests!
