Step off the beaten path and experience Taos in a whole new way.

For more than 30 years, Rio Grande Stables has been providing quality, dependability, and expertise to our clients. Whether you are a family of first-time riders to an accomplished equestrian looking for that special experience, we have the guides and trails to make this a special memory!

Surround yourself in pinon pine and juniper on Cebolla Mesa. Cruise for hours in the saddle with river overviews and possibly the confluence of the Red River and the Rio Grande! Experience sweeping landscapes stretching across the Taos Plateau. Truly a quality experience away from the crowds & bustle of town.

Beginning in July (so we don’t have to worry about getting stuck in the snow), we ride the amazing Bull of the Woods trail in the Taos Ski Valley. Eventually climbing to over 13,000 feet, this trail passes through pine and aspen forests and the occasional alpine meadow. Shorter rides will give you streams, forest, and wildflowers; longer rides will have views over Red River and the Ski Valley. Our all-day rides give you the chance to move up above tree line, and possibly to the highest point in New Mexico!
