San Juan Backcountry is now offering the most alluring 1 Hour Silverton Horseback Riding town tours.

Let our San Juan Backcountry Wranglers and our treasured Horses take you through the Quant little mining town of Silverton Colorado. The history of Silverton is rife with gold rush drama, winter sports legends, and infamous outlaws of the Old West. Dive into Silverton’s history with our experienced wranglers and beautiful horses while they entertain you by unlocking the secrets of the past and discover Silverton’s rich mining district, and historic hidden relics scattered across the town.  The slow and steady pace is the Perfect way to see Silverton.

If you are not staying in Silverton and would like to just get a ride up from Durango we recommend you just hope on our trusty shuttle bus that leaves from the Albertsons parking lot at 11:00 am. The bus arrives in Silverton at 12:00pm just in time for a mouth watering lunch at the bent elbow. Your wrangler will then meet you to mosey on over to the corral to hope on your hand picked horse. Your historic Wild West horseback riding tour will take off at 12:45-1:45. You will be picked up at 2:00 pm by the shuttle bus to head back to Durango.  This is the short but sweet round trip way to go especially if you don’t have all day.
