Come on a horseback trail ride in Colorado's San Juan Mountains! Crystal clear western skies let you see Colorado's spectacular La Plata Mountains to the east. To the west, the view includes the world-famous Mesa Verde National Park and the Sleeping Ute Mountain!

Ride horses with us in the La Plata Mountains. Guided horseback rides are near Mancos, Colorado, between Durango and Mesa Verde National Park. High alpine wildflowers and wildlife abound! Rimrock Outfitters offers your family an authentic cowboy experience, the best vacation adventure in the country!

Rimrock Outfitters adventures include breakfast and dinner rides, camp and pack trips, carriage, wagon, and sleigh rides! We now accommodate larger groups such as family reunions and corporate retreats. Perry and Lynne continue to add a personal touch to the horseback rides by conveying a warm, friendly attitude toward each of their guests.

I did a 4 hours trail ride into the stunning San Juan Mountains. The guide was very friendly and my horse Bingo as well. Had a lot of fun and took some great pictures.

A few years back my husband and I Tokyo a 2 hour ride with Rimrock Outfitters and loved every moment. So it was my first choice to take my 11year old granddaughter here for her first horseback ride. It was perfect. Linda was patient and kind and explained things very well to her. The horses she picked for us were... More

Our trip to CO was the 2nd week of Oct 2015 - this was post-riding season and into hunting season, so many places were closed or rented horses out to hunters. But Rim Rock came thru for us and was able to fit our very large group of 17 people (9 kids, 8 adults). Our group of city slickers had... More

Called to reserve for a breakfast ride. Lynn was our guide up to the breakfast place and Perry on the way back. Horses were well-behaved and fun to ride. Scenery was breathtaking. Really enjoyed this ride and breakfast was awesome! Would sign up with these folks again any day.

We had a great ride with Gail this morning. They have a ramp for the less graceful among us to mount the horses. The horses were predictable and friendly. No surprises, no city slicker comments, just fun easy riding. We chose the breakfast ride. The ranch was easy to find from the highway. Just keep going and you'll see their... More

We called at the last minute when passing through town, hoping we could get a spot for a ride. Perry was kind enough to make room for us (mom, dad and two girls ages 8 and 10) the next afternoon.
