This ride extends the one hour ride to include the rim of Devil’s Canyon. The beauty of the red rock coves and canyons abound with desert wildlife including eagles, deer, jack rabbits and sometimes the elusive coyote. There are some tricky inclines and declines along this trail making it slightly more technical than the one hour, but still appropriate for novice riders. There is a weight limit of 250 lbs. Please let us know if someone in your party is over 6’4”.

*Subject to availability, minimum of two people to book rid

2 Hour Ride: Sunset Ride

$100/ ADULT AND $80/ CHILD

Call for time availability

This Sunset Ride shows the Grand Valley in the best light (no pun intended). As you trek passed the base of the Colorado National Monument, the land and wildlife come to life. The desert birds come out to catch their last meals for the day while the setting sun paints the Bookcliffs pink. This is an unforgettable experience to have with someone you love.

Wildhorse Ride

$200/Person

Call for time and availability

Pony Ride

$20/30 MINUTES

Available upon request and subject to availability

If your child is under 7 years old and therefore too young to go on one of our rides, then this is a great chance for them to get up on a horse. A parent or adult can lead the child on horseback around the Rimrock property for 15 minutes giving them a chance to experience an easy first horseback ride.
