"A Ride of a Lifetime" Granite Mountain Outfitters horses are gentle and are suited for beginner to experienced riders. We look forward to giving you a ride of a lifetime, experienced guides, responsive horses and fabulous country! Native mountain horses are sure-footed and allow for a western experience of scenic mountain views, wildflowers and wildlife. Horseback rides or trail rides 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. An 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. The rides leave at 8700ft riding to 10,000ft viewing the Sangre de Cristo's, San Lewis valley, historic Mt Ouray & the Collegiate Peaks. A short driving distance from the Buena Vista and Salida area. We ride with pride and have a ton of fun! « less

We took our grandkids there. Sue was helpful and reassuring. The horses were well-trained, and the location is stunning. We hope to return for another ride soon.

Fantastic Finish to our holiday weekend! Sue was very accommodating for this family of first time riders. She was very patient with our kids and encouraged them the whole way. A very nervous 7 year old was a pro by the end of our journey. The scenery is absolutely amazing. Thanks to Sue, Dakota, Blue-eyes, Houdini, Fred and Winter. Can't... More

We were not disappointed in our ride up through the mountain valley, past abundant wildflowers, and aspen groves to the mountain top. Our horses were well trained and healthy. We received thorough instruction on basic horsemanship prior to our ride, so we felt secure in our ride. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. I would feel confident bringing my grandchildren...

We camped in Buena Vista and considered riding there, but we really wanted a sunset ride which the other place didn't have so we chose to go with GMO instead - Great... More

Very nice lady giving horse back tours. 1 hour was $70 for 2 people. Super gorgeous scenery through the mountains. Nice extra for our honeymoon. We were the only guests on the tour.
