A Fun & Safe Horseback Ride in Salida
What better way to view the beauty of Colorado’s wilderness than from the back of horse?
Our experienced native mountain horses and wranglers take you out for a one or two-hour horseback adventure where you enjoy the great outdoors. We supply all the gear necessary to ensure a fun and safe ride. From greenhorn to expert, Granite Mountain Outfitters caters to the horseman in each of us, taking you back in time to the days when a trip through the Rockies was only possible on horseback.
We ride along the base of the Sangre De Cristo Mountains, which means “Blood of Christ,” named for the blazing red sunsets cast on the snowcapped peaks. Enjoy a view of Colorado’s most difficult fourteeners, the Crestones, the Sierra Blaca, Mount Shavano and Tabeguache Peak (Sawatch Range), Historical Mt. Ouray, the Great National Sand Dunes, and the San Luis valley.
Granite Mountain Outfitters is a summer and fall activity business with 20 years of experience, specializing in Western outdoor and ranch fun for everyone. Our small ride sizes ensure that you receive the personal attention you deserve to have a truly interactive horseback experience.
