BACK TO OUTDOOR RECREATION

horseback & llama trekking

On two feet, or on four feet, however you prefer, there’s a dizzying range of ways and places to make tracks on trails in Taos. Hiking, mountains on horseback through Indian reservation land or accompanied by gentle llamas carrying your gear, you can do it all here.

HORSEBACK RIDING
A visit to the Southwest may not be complete unless you get in the saddle. Taos is horse country. See it astride a gentle ride. Guided trail rides available up high in the mountains and down low on Indian reservation land.
