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!

My daughter wanted her daughters to experience some of her childhood memories. This is one. We had a great time. The horses were picked specifically for each rider and that rider's experience. One of my granddaughters has cerebral palsy. The wranglers did a great job with her, having a wrangler lead her horse specifically. The scenery here is beautiful and... More

We really enjoyed our trail ride with the folks at Rapp Corral. We booked the trip about 3 weeks in advance. Ann was excellent in her communication before as well as the the day of the ride. It was raining and a little chilly for the last of June. The staff were great. Christina helped with paperwork and making sure... More

I can't say enough good things about the Rapp Corral. Most of the family had never been on a horse and the staff was great about showing us the ropes. The staff kept the ride fun, interesting, and, most importantly as a parent, safe for the kids. Everyone had a great time and we will definitely ride again.

We (Mother and two daughters) took the 2-hour horseback riding package. As you can imagine, we wanted more time. It was more tricky riding the trails then we expected because of the tight paths but it didn't deter us (just thought it would be open fields). We enjoyed it very much and thought the horses were great (and well taken... More

For our horseback riding friends in the Arizona desert... this is a ride for you. So different than anything we have in Southern Arizona. Ann and her crew will take you on an amazing mountain ride through the Aspens of the San Juan Nat'l Forest. Top notch corral. Healthy horses. Friendly staff. Kid friendly. Quit surfing for options and sign... More
