Trail Rides or Horseback Rides 1 hour Horseback Rides, 2.5 hour Horseback Riding, 1/2 day Trail Rides, Full day Trail Rides. "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!

What a wonderful experience to go with Granite Mountain Outfitters. The pre-ride instructions (for both experienced and inexperienced riders) were clear, concise, and relevant for the riders. The guides' concern for the riders AND the horses was evident throughout the ride. The horses and the tack were well kept and the horses were well behaved. I would recommend this group... More

We had the best time...great people, scenery and horses. Our guides were Evelyn and Katelyn who where very knowledgeable of the area and they did a great job pairing the personalities of the horses with the riders. We even were treated to a lesson on shoeing a horse. Will definitely come back again soon.

My family and I had a great time horseback riding with Granite Mountain Outfitters. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, the horses were well trained and easy to ride, and the scenery was, as the kids say, "super awesome." Granite Mountain provides a safe and enjoyable way of seeing the backcountry. I'd recommend them to anyone.

We had a wonderful 3.5 hour morning trail ride with Randy as our guide. The scenery was beautiful and Randy was a fantastic guide. I recommend this to novice and experienced riders!

We had a great time horseback riding, it was a small group so very relaxing. Well trained horses that weren't 'old nags'...fun time, beautiful trails, nice scenery.

Thank you Sue and the rest of the wonderful guides we had on 6/23/15. We went on a 2.5 hour ride and had such a wonderful time riding and seeing so many beautiful things on our trail ride. Sue and the others were so patient with the kids and very informative about everything we were seeing. I would definitely recommend... More

My family of 4 adults and 4 kids ages 7 to 10 had an incredible experience. None of us had much if any riding experience and it was a complete success. All kids were able to maintain their own horse. There is no better landscape, the horses were wonderful, and the guides were perfect. Would go back again and would... More

Sue and Kaitlyn are good at what they do, interacting with people and horses. The horses are gentle and well behaved. My wife and I went on the 2-1/2 hour ride, along with my niece, and enjoyed every minute of it! That's an accomplishment for me, who rides rarely and can best deal with horses from ground level! I was... More
