Friendly, active ride half-day through breathtaking scenery

Some trail rides are lame. They plop you on a horse where you ride like a sack of potatoes along boring trails just so you can say you did it. This is not one of those rides. We... read more

Some trail rides are lame. They plop you on a horse where you ride like a sack of potatoes along boring trails just so you can say you did it. This is not one of those rides. We did the half-day Sandbench Trail ride, which involves a minor river crossing, lots of elevation changes with some pretty interesting footing for... More

My family of 4 took the 11 am ride at the end of October. My 7 year old daughter and 9 year old son loved it. And my husband and I did too. The horses are great and look very healthy. The wranglers are very friendly and helpful. However I wished they had stopped more often for taking pictures and... More

While in Zion, my hubby and I decided to take in all that was available, so we opted for a horse ride. We went with the 1 hour ride and departed at 11am with our guide, Eddie. I rode Shadow and my hubby rode Navajo, who likes to tailgate! The 1-hour loop on the canyon floor showed us various native... More

The one hour ride was enough for me. It was an amazing experience to ride in such natural beauty. The horses and mules pick their best footing as they move near the edge. The view of the Court of the Patriarchs is truly incredible. for more advanced riders there are longer rides that cover much more of this majestic park.... More

My 9 year old daughter and I took the one hour trail ride. The scenary is beautiful, but the guide must have been tired as he did not really want to answer many questions. He seemed like he just wanted to get the tour done and go home. My daughter had fun, so it was a complete success. She especially... More

Trail riding options are pretty limited in Zion but i am happy to say it doesn't matter, the guys at Canyon Trail Rides offer a fantastic experience. Eddie took me, my wife and our two boys (amongst many others) on a well paced and thoroughly enjoyable ride through the Canyon. The horses behaved impeccably and the scenery was breathtaking. A...

Had a lot of fun on the Sandbench trail ride. The ride is the basic head to tail group ride. We used to ride a lot, now only a few times a year. The horses we got were very good. They were responsive to the reins and to leg pressure. Much better horses than on some other rides we have... More

We did the 1/2 day tour of Peek-a-Boo Loop. It's the prettiest part of the canyon, and was lovely to do on horseback. Our guide Kevin was great. Really friendly, lives in Bryce so shared lots of fun details. Lots of great photos. Plus good customer service - our booked morning was raining. We decided not to go and they... More

My family and I did the half day horseback riding and overall it was very good. We had a tremendous amount of fun. The reason we are giving four instead of five stars is because my husband and I did not have our stirrups done correctly the first time, and the time for the half-day was misrepresented. Regarding the length... More

My family of four spent the morning (three hours) with Eddie touring Zion National Park. The ride was easy in most spots, but going up the hills seemed tougher for the mules and horses although they are use to it. The views were gorgeous from over 600 feet up over the roadway. There is a rest stop at the halfway... More
