We had a fabulous trail ride with Dom (Dominique). She was funny and very knowledgeable. We went on the two hour trail ride and we had a fantastic time. The thing that impressed me the most was her concern about the safety of the guests. It had started raining and we had some thunder and lightning. She was on the... More

We booked a 2 hour trail ride for the early morning. This was a bucket list item for the group. We were greeted by the friendly staff, and given instructions about riding. Helmets were offered (optional), and small saddlebags are available to carry a bottle of water. Each of our wranglers introduced themselves and then we were introduced to our... More

My hubby and I booked the Old Wagon Road and Cave ride. Our wranglers, Christy and Tymberlee (spelling?) were wonderful! The scenery is incredible and the horses are matched to your size and riding ability. They run a safe, fun and knowledgeable outfit. We did have to dismount for a short time due to a storm, but it was all... More

We booked the cave ride so our horseback adventure included some hiking and cave exploring. Daughter (8) and wife (>8) were beginners and I had not been on a horse it quite some time. The guides (Noah and Dom) were excellent with all levels of riders and also used the time on the trail to point out flora and scenic... More

Our family had the chance to go on the 1 hour trail ride at Rapp Corral. We could not have asked for a better experience and our only regret is that we didn't choose a longer ride. The barn is well managed, the horses are happy and healthy and the wranglers are fun and keep a focus on safety; we... More

Did the 2 hour cave ride with a 10 and 7 year old. Breathtaking scenery and a cool cave with awesome horses and really nice guides. They were really accommodating to the kids and gave them some good horse lessons. The cave hike is a steep one though but it's worth it

Wonderful ride in the San Juan forest. Guide was educational, friendly, accommodating, and fun. 10-year old daughter begged us to buy a horse as a result😜. Highly recommend!

The all women staff were professional, polite and very knowledgeable. It was a great, fun experience for our family. We had a last minute rider change (small child to a big teenager) and they were able to accommodate even on a very busy day. Also, the lady that greeted us had the most amazing blue eyes.....

We took the 2 hour cave trip, ride a horse, do a little caving, what a blast. The horses were well mannered and maintained. Staff was very courteous and knowledgeable. Our Granddaughter loved it, as did we.

We had a one hour tour for a family of novice riders. Our ride was great and our leaders were outstanding. Great local knowledge, horse riding skills, and personality. My daughter wanted to stay with her horse Burrito. Highest recommendation!
