About Granite Mountain Outfitters
1 hour, 1.5 hour, 2.5 hour, and 1/2 day Trail Rides. "A Ride of a Lifetime" Granite Mountain Outfitters' horses are gentle and are suited for beginner to experienced riders. Native mountain horses are sure-footed and allow for a western experience of scenic mountain views, wildflowers and wildlife. Rides are guided and specialize in scenery. An ideal group size is no more than 3-5 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 2.5 hour and half day rides leave at 8700ft riding to 10,000ft viewing the Sangre de Cristo's, San Luis valley, historic Mt. Ouray & the Great Sand Dunes. The hour and 1.5 hour rides leave at 8700 ft and ride to 9500 feet with views of historic Mt. Ouray, the Sangre de Christo mountains, and the San Luis Valley. We are a short driving distance from the Buena Vista and Salida area. We ride with pride and have a ton of fun!
