My friend and I had a wonderful time on the 2-hour trail ride. Our group's guide was charming and knowledgable. My friend had never ridden before and I ride quite often -- we both were very happy with our horses. The trail ride gave us another way to appreciate Bryce Canyon. We saw the landscape from the canyon floor and... More

In June 2014, our party of five took the 1/2-day trail ride down into Bryce Canyon. We enjoyed the views of Bryce Canyon which can be seen on the ride. However, we want anyone who considers taking this ride to be forewarned of the concessionaire's strict prohibition against taking along drinking water. Two days before the ride, our party had...

If you have a fear of heights this is not for you. A great adventure those that are not afraid. Fun for our teenagers. They will never forget the adventure.

If you are not sure about taking a trail ride -- DO IT. Wife and 7 year old son did not want to sign up, they had never been on a horse. I was nervous about riding close to the "edge". All fears were groundless, this was wife and son's #1 highlight of our week in Utah/Arizona - we took... More

I really wanted to do this ride, but was nervous of riding near the edge (especially after reading the reviews!) But I was determined to do it anyway (and shut my eyes if necessary). And was so glad we did it - it was a great experience and a highlight of the trip. I think, because I felt the cowboy... More

A horse ride down the canyon is a must even if it is many years ago the one has ridden. The experience is unforgettable and a talking point for years to come. The very experienced guides point out the landmarks as they lead the way down the dirt paths with 500 foot drops at the side. Stops are frequent for... More

We intended to ride the mules down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, but because of my lack of knowledge of the area (it's a long story), we had to switch to riding the horses/mules through Bryce. We had a great time. And I would hazard to say that riding the mules through Bryce was better than in the... More

Had great rides. both are unique and beautiful. the guides were knowable and friendly,, the mount were healthy, looked well cared for, also were well behaved, they do ask about your riding experience and try to match you with a appropriate mount. 1st time I had ever been on a Mule was at Zion and then again at Bryce. would...

Just did the 2 hour ride with 2 other (adult) members of my family. We were the only 3 in the group that morning with Kevin our cowboy. It was the most amazing way to see Bryce Canyon and Kevin was very informative and attentive. Would heartily recommend it to anyone wanting to go down into the canyon for fantastic... More
