Visit Us on Your Way to Mesa Verde!

Rimrock Outfitters was started Perry and Lynne Lewis. When they first established their operation, it was a simple hourly horseback riding experience. Since then, Rimrock Outfitters adventures have grown to include Breakfast Rides, Dinner Rides, Camping Rides, Pack Trips! They 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. Come out and enjoy the San Juan Mountains.


Rimrock Outfitters is a beautiful, easy drive from Durango (25 minutes). We are located in Mancos, Colorado, just 25 minutes of Durango [we're located half way between Durango and Mesa Verde - yes, we are on the way!].

Hi Lynne (and Perry),

We are safely back in France and still remember the great evening we did spend with you. It is one of the first stories we tell when we are asked to report about our four weeks in the U.S. Thanks for the great time and maybe see you later.

Hi Perry & Lynne,

I really had a wonderful time in the few hours I spent at Rimrock Outfitters. Any need for a ranch hand for a few weeks?

Perry, you made the ride so special for us and our friends. Thank you. They so thoroughly enjoyed your company, the scenery, and the wonderful breakfast and visiting around the campfire. It will have been the highlight of their trip, thanks to you!
