The summer trail rides are outstanding. I have gone several times on the hour and two hour rides with my grand children and my grand daughter has done the cave ride on her own a couple of times. The wranglers are friendly, competent and pay attention to the needs of all of their guests. The scenery is gorgeous. The horses... More

We booked a 2 hour ride. Our wrangler Tarren (sorry hope I spelled you name right) was awesome. The ride was a lot of fun, when we do get back there again we'll definitely do at least the half day ride. Overall it was well worth the money and I'd recommend it to anyone!

My sister and 2 kids aged 6 and 9 enjoyed the trail ride and cave hike with our guide Trish. She was amazing with the kids and actually led my daughter who is 6 on the way to the cave since she had never ridden a horse before. She held onto a rope that was attached to her horse. On... More

This was the highlight of our Colorado road trip from Texas. My wife and I did the 4.5 hr Hermosa Cliffs horseback trek. We couldn't have been more pleased. The views and ride were the best we have been on, and we have been on some great ones. The ascent and descent were challenging, but well worth it. Ann was... More

To be honest, my wife and I didm;t go, but we sent our two college-age daughters on a 3-hour tour (no Gilligan; Island here…) They are VERY experienced horse people (lots of English jumpy-stuff back home), and when on a vacation, always take a horse ride somewhere, so they have a lot of experience on guided horse rides. They came... More

My 12 yrs old daughters first time horseback riding and everything was great. Julie took care of the entire group and the ride was scenic and hike down to the cave interesting. Even a little rain didn't dampen the fun..Thanks all.

Guide Faith took my family on one of the best trail rides I've ever experienced. Friendly and professional staff at Rapp were so easy to work with. We were rained out the first day but they were able to re-schedule with no problems. Horses were well cared for, the guide (Faith) was attentive and knowledgeable, and the beauty of the... More

We found Rapp Corral when booking the Durango & Silverton trip that combined a train and horse riding day trip. We can't say enough good things about the ranch, the staff, the horses and the experience. We did the cave visit trail and saw a 10 point buck on the ride! Tymbree was our wrangler. Super knowledgable, friendly and informative.... More

My family and I took a 2 hour trail ride and we had a great time! Faith was our guide and she was wonderful!! The horses were beautiful and very calm. We rode through the mountain trails and stopped for a little while to walk into a mountain cave. Overall a really fun experience!
