Happy trails at Bryce.

Family of 6 (all over 17) took the 1/2 day trip. Was great for all. Just wish the guide explained a little more about what we were seeing, though overall he was great.

Awesome!! Not to be missed. Up close and personal with all manner of hoodoos. I went on the 8 AM ride and summer weather was tolerable. The guide was a bit of a novice w some obvious rehearsed jokes, but he was sincere and friendly. They offer snapshots of you at end for $10 - I had an awkward expression... More

We did the 1 hour North Rim ride. The staff took great care to match the right mule for each person. The trail leaders were patient, friendly and very informative of the many attractions and events of the North Rim and surrounding parks. We were glad to have gone on the ride. Beautiful scenery and photo opportunities.

Awesome trail ride down into Bryce National Park Canyon. Along with about a dozen others plus a trail boss we rode approx 3 1/2 hrs seeing the best parts of the canyon from atop a saddle's prospective. Sure beats walking!!! I rode in the rear on "Moonshine" who liked to play catch-up with a trot to the others after falling... More

We had a group of 6. Three of us had never been on a horse. Staff was incredible - matched our personalities with the horses perfectly. Such a beautiful way to see the canyon. We highly recommend adding this to your Zion list of activities!

Our 9 & 10 year old daughters love horses and the idea of riding them, but upon beginning the switchback descent to the canyon floor, they both freaked out a bit. Our guide Shawn led us through the rough start and gave the girls just the right combination of assurance, humor and toughness to allow our whole family to have... More

This was an amazing way to see Bryce National Park. The hikes to the bottom would have been long and difficult and this was an amazing way to see the floor of the canyon. Our guide, Newt, cared about our safety and was always making sure we were comfortable and safe on our horses. We got to see views of... More

We went on the 2 hour morning ride in Bryce Canyon with Cowboy Don on June 22. We had a wonderful time. 10 people in our group. Up close with the hoodoos and saw beautiful vistas. Great horse experience for a novice 12 year old rider.

This half day trail ride of the peekaboo loop was absolutely awesome. One of the best things we have ever done. My 11 year old daughter loved it. Definitely do 8 am trip. Too hot later. It is best way to see Bryce Canyon. Spectacular views and hidden surprises along the way. This experience was amazing. You stop half way... More
