This trail ride is suitable for almost anyone. Concern for everyone's safety is shown and the ride is very pleasant. There is some up and downhill riding on the longer trail ride but overall is quite easy. We thoroughly enjoyed the ride through the canyon.

We decided to do the trail ride and are glad we did. The lead cowboy assigns you to either a sure footed mule or a horse. We we given horses. And they we fun. Had some spirit. The ride was 2 hours long, and that was plenty for us. The mules and horses are so well trained, that you can... More

Our two daughters were thrilled to take a horse ride into Bryce Canyon at the end of our week of hiking in southern Utah. My husband and I were less thrilled, having little experience with the equine set. But the ride was a pleasure, and such an interesting way to see the sights. The cowboy leader was funny, thoughtful, and... More

This was our first time riding on horseback in a national park. It was a beautiful experience. My kids loved the horses and mules. For the most part the horses were well behaved. Thanks for the nice time. :-)

What a great time on our trail ride with Mark! We had our 4 kids with us, ages 9-14, and the guides were extremely competent! Even though the kids had never ridden before, within 10 minutes they were at ease and loving every minute of it! The views were incredible and after doing some vigorous hikes, it was a welcome...

Our group of 5 book this several months ago for our April trip to Utah. We had to change our reservation on short notice the day before and they were very accommodating. Our guide, Hank and all the staff were great. The trail experience was very good and the view is worth every penny. The Mules & Horses know what... More

Might be the most fun I've ever had with all my clothes on ! Early April with just a bit of snow. My wife and I rode a pair of donkeys . Our Guide, Cash, was great, patient with our rather inexperienced group. My steed, the Judge, and I got along great. We were only allowed the 2 hour tour... More

Put this at the top of your things to do in Bryce. Guides are competent, congenial, patient, and appear to enjoy the ride along with the visitors. Views spectacular! Guides know their stuff.

There were 8 of us on the trail ride. 4 adults and 4 children. The children who are all horse lovers and experienced horsemen were a bit bored, because it is indeed a nose to tail trail ride. However, the adults loved it. The scenery is lovely, there are steep inclines and then steep declines, but not scary. It was... More

Like traveling down into Mars! Was a great experience, a little nerve wracking as the horses and mules walk on the edge of the trail and its 1000 feet down, but wow what scenery. No other place like it - so unique and interesting. It was covered in snow and it was cold, so we were pretty layered up, but... More
