This was the first time I had been to Bryce and thought that a (mule) ride would be a fun introduction. I was not disappointed. The scenery was jaw-dropping stunningly beautiful. I booked a ride through Canyon Trail Rides because they do not require one to be an experienced rider and the prices were very reasonable. The guide was friendly... More

My husband and I did the half day Peek A Boo Loop trail in mid May. We have ridden before but told our guide that we hadn't ridden for nearly 20 years. We were told no problem. We asked to be put at the front but were placed at the very end of the group. You must arrive by 7:30... More

This was an extra special excursion during our 40th wedding anniversary celebrations and we both enjoyed the experience. I had booked the ride as a surprise for my experienced horse-rider wife, it certainly proved to be one of the highlights of our tour. Very well organised by the helpful and informative guides who sorted riding experience to mules. As we... More

I would highly recommend taking a trail ride through the Hoodoos. We took the half day tour through the canyon and it was worth every penny. The ride was educational and the views were spectacular. The views from horseback give you a whole new perspective. The ride was well organized and the animals are well cared for. No experience is... More

On a two week trip through Utah, we tried to plan some fun excursions along the way such as a sunset Hummer tour, a boat float, and this - a horse ride down into Bryce Canyon. My teen daughter especially loves horses so I planned this especially for her, but our whole family enjoyed it. The cowboys are careful to... More

My husband and I spent a lovely afternoon riding the peek-a-boo trail with Canyon Trail Rides. We found it to be a well organised, professional company, with entertaining local guides. Most importantly the horses and mules appeared well cared for. As it was very hot, we received lots of envious looks from the hikers as we walked past them! I... More

My husband and I took the half day (3 hr) ride. The staff was very friendly and informative. The ride was worth the money. The horses did all the work and took us to places we would have never experienced. We will admit that our backsides were sore but we took a break halfway on the ride that really helped.... More

We had reservations for a half day ride on Sat, Oct 17 but with the threat of a lot of rain we decided to see if we could go on the 10:00 ride on Friday. We were placed on standby along with 8 or 10 more so thought we would not be able to go. Canyon Trail Rides was able... More

My husband loves to take trail rides and this seemed the easiest way for two people with limited hiking abilities to experience the Peek-A-Boo Trail without actually walking it. The views were absolutely stunning and our guide, Hank, was knowledgeable, friendly and funny. That said, the ride was a little daunting until you realized the horses and mules have done... More

Did rides in both Bryce and Zion. Had a great time on both rides. If you are doing only one choose Bryce. It has more unique terrain. I have ridden horses all my life, while my husband had zero experience and we both loved it.
