This was a fun ride over two hours. It is a well run operation. The staff was friendly and did a great job. I would recommend to anyone who visits Durango.

“Our Favorite Part of the Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

The Rapp Corral met all of our expectations. Our only regret was not taking a longer ride. Ems and Sarah had the horses ready upon our arrival. Sarah led the way, was very knowledgeable of the area, and made the two-hour ride one to remember.

“Couldn't be better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

I rode with Rapp Corral twice - a three hour ride one day and a two hour ride another. The scenery was spectacular and the wranglers were friendly and knowledgeably about the flora and fauna of the area as well as the history of the area which made for a really interesting ride. The barn, guest area and corral were neat and organized - not easy if you've ever had horses, tack, etc. and the horses clean and obviously cared for.

I road Issac and Charlie Brown - both horses were a pleasure to ride and solid as rocks on some challenging trails. I'm far from petite and was worried there might not be a horse for me to ride but these guys were gems. (Charlie is a famous horse - having appeared in numerous western movies!).

Most important the horses' condition was Top priority. When Issac had a small muscle pull, they didn't hesitate to pull him out of the rotation and gave me Charlie instead. I love that the corral puts their animals' care 1st, followed closely by client safety and enjoyment.

“Great Ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Great ride with great people. Our anniversary trip schedule changed in Durango but my wife wanted to got horseback riding. We called Tracy that morning and she agreed to fit us in despite their plans to close early. They are about 20 miles North of Durango right on 550 so we were able to get there easily and a bit early. Tracy was vey professional, efficient and pleasant to ride with. The horses she selected for us were perfect. Charley the horse took my inexperience in stride with good grace and manners. Thanks to all therefor going the extra step to make sure that we had a great experience.
