My sister and 2 kids aged 6 and 9 enjoyed the trail ride and cave hike with our guide Trish. She was amazing with the kids and actually led my daughter who is 6 on the way to the cave since she had never ridden a horse before. She held onto a rope that was attached to her horse. On... More

This was the highlight of our Colorado road trip from Texas. My wife and I did the 4.5 hr Hermosa Cliffs horseback trek. We couldn't have been more pleased. The views and ride were the best we have been on, and we have been on some great ones. The ascent and descent were challenging, but well worth it. Ann was... More

To be honest, my wife and I didm;t go, but we sent our two college-age daughters on a 3-hour tour (no Gilligan; Island here…) They are VERY experienced horse people (lots of English jumpy-stuff back home), and when on a vacation, always take a horse ride somewhere, so they have a lot of experience on guided horse rides. They came... More

My 12 yrs old daughters first time horseback riding and everything was great. Julie took care of the entire group and the ride was scenic and hike down to the cave interesting. Even a little rain didn't dampen the fun..Thanks all.

Guide Faith took my family on one of the best trail rides I've ever experienced. Friendly and professional staff at Rapp were so easy to work with. We were rained out the first day but they were able to re-schedule with no problems. Horses were well cared for, the guide (Faith) was attentive and knowledgeable, and the beauty of the... More

We found Rapp Corral when booking the Durango & Silverton trip that combined a train and horse riding day trip. We can't say enough good things about the ranch, the staff, the horses and the experience. We did the cave visit trail and saw a 10 point buck on the ride! Tymbree was our wrangler. Super knowledgable, friendly and informative.... More

My family and I took a 2 hour trail ride and we had a great time! Faith was our guide and she was wonderful!! The horses were beautiful and very calm. We rode through the mountain trails and stopped for a little while to walk into a mountain cave. Overall a really fun experience!

Rapp Corral was a great time. Beautiful mountain air. The owner makes you feel welcome. TimerLee was very passionate about her horses. She made us all feel welcome, talked about the area. The Durango area is so beautiful. The horses were well behaved, knew their surroundings. Great family experience!

The Rapp Corral is perfectly positioned near Haviland Lake, giving it access to a wide variety of wonderful trails through the San Juan National Forest. My family and I are novice riders at best and we signed up for an hour trail ride. The rides are based on a trail that should take about an hour, but you go by... More
