Took our 2 grandsons on this. Absolutely wonderful. Go early so you have time for them to get you situated on a horse that fits your ability, adjust your saddle and group your party because there are people there to take your reservation if you do not show up. I took some amazing pics with my iPhone.

We did a 2 hour loop ride into Bryce canyon. Great views and definitely a change of pace from our usually hustled hiking. Great experience particularly for first timers or those who haven't ridden in a long time. We really enjoyed our guide Hank who was friendly and happy to answer questions along the way.

This is the greatest way to see the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Beautiful scenery, a very knowledgeable guide and great mules. You may see the coyote who frequents the trail and some mule deer. We even saw a white tailed squirrel that only lives there! Everyone involved from the reservations to the actual trip is great to work... More

We spent ten days in the five different National Parks in Utah. But horseback riding in Bryce was a definite trip highlight. I have a fear of heights and would not have gone down into the canyons any other way. Having the horse do the walking made all the difference. Our guide, who called himself, Tough, was great.

We did the 2 hr Bryce Canyon trail ride. I could not go close to the lookout points in other parts of the canyon because of my fear of heights so I am amazed I made it through this! I told them at check in about my fear and our guide Cash was fantastic! He attached my mule Bonnie to... More

Excellent value, superbly well organised, informative and friendly guide, wonderful horses. We were complete novices yet enjoyed our ride without the slightest concern, whoever looks after and trains the horses needs congratulating

We took the 3 hour ride at Bryce Canyon and it was great! Our guide, Josh, was really nice and helpful. I was a bit hesitant but Josh made me feel very comfortable the whole time and eased my fears. (I had never been on a horse before). Thanks to this ride, we were able to see so much of... More

We rode the mules at North Rim. Everyone involved with the trail ride group was great. Not at anytime did I felt in danger. The experience was something I greatly enjoyed and and highly recommend.

This is fabulous! I had never been on a horse, but took the 4 hour trail ride to the bottom of the canyon. They couldn't have been nicer and placed me right next the trail guide. The views are stunning! You will love it!

Even our son who was frightened of horses enjoyed this 2-hour trip to the canyon floor and back. The guides were very helpful and the trip was terrific.We saw some great views, learned from our guide, and appreciated the unique perspective. My only cautionary note is GET THERE EARLY or they will give away your horses. There are plenty of... More
