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

I did the 1/2 day horse ride with my wife. It was the first time on a horse for both of us but we had no trouble at all. Dixie, our guide, was very helpful and gave us some good explanation about the area. The horses were very quite and they followed our commands.

I booked the Bryce Canyon Peek A Boo 1/2 day ride as a birthday present for my husband. He loves to ride while I do not. With that said this was a outstanding ride. The sights were breathtaking! The horses were well trained. There were lots of narrow switchbacks especially Devil's slide and the horses did a great job. My... More

Five members of our family rode the 1/2 day Peek-a-Boo Loop with Canyon Trail Rides. We have ridden horses in McCall, Idaho, and Estes Park. Our experience is that the rides are so-so. This ride in Bryce Canyon blew all the others away. The guides were exceptional matching us up with horses. The horses followed each other. So, our time... More

We took the three hour mule ride down to the Supai Tunnel and back. There were seven riders total on the trail ride and Melissa was our wrangler. I was a little nervous about the experience because I haven't been on a horse since I was 14 years old and I'm afraid of heights. Both of those contributed to me... More
