Trail Rides or Horseback Rides a Ride of a Lifetime!
Our Rides are nose-to-tail due to the type of terrain because we love and respect our horse’s riding at 8,700ft to 10,500ft depending on the ride and the safety of our clients.
Our small ride sizes ensure that our guests receive the personal attention they deserve to have a truly interactive horseback riding experience.
Reservations required: Information First names, heights, weights, and ages of children 17 and under, a cell phone number and where you are staying.
Granite Mountain Outfitters horses are gentle and are suited for beginner to experienced riders. Native mountain horses are sure-footed and allow for a western experience of scenic mountain views, wildflowers, and wildlife. Horseback tours are guided and specialize in scenic rides with personalized attention. From novice to expert we will match the horse, the rider, and the group to each rider’s ability. Ideal group size is no more than 4-6 horses; however, larger groups are catered to on an individual basis. Riding helmets are available for children and adults at no charge and are ASTM-SEI approved.
May and June are ideal times to witness the beauty of springtime in the Rockies! The crowds have not yet arrived, the mountains are still topped with snow while the daytime temps range between the 60’s and ’70s and the forests and hillsides are emerald green with the emergence of spring leaves and grass.
With hundreds of acres of aspen groves, a trail ride at Granite Mountain Outfitters is a great way to be wholly immersed in the golden colors of fall in the Rockies. Your horse will not only take you through various groves of aspen but also to a breathtaking, panoramic mountain top for an overview of the changing foliage viewing Sangre De Cristo, Sawatch Mountains, and the San Luis Valley.
