Report: Vail Daily reporter John LaConte rides horses with Sage Outdoor Adventures, who operates on Piney Valley Ranch in Wolcott. No two of Sage’s horseback riding trips are the same, as the private land lease allows guides to explore the entire 6,000 acres, not just the trails. The land starts at 8,100 feet and reaches heights of 10,000 feet.
