We did the hour trail tour. It was a totally new environment going on this trail ride and it was really cool to see the forest of Kaibob. We went with two trail guides who answered all our questions and were extremely helpful with giving instructions on how to ride the horse and to make sure we stayed on the... More

we visited the stables for the one-hour ride through the National Forest. Horses and staff were friendly, although a little quiet. We were hoping to learn a little more about the area vegetation and/or history...any info would have been appreciated. but instead got a quiet ride through a nice, well maintained trail. Kids loved it. I have to say that... More

The stables are in a great location, just outside of the National Park (though you can enter/exit all you want w/ the 7-day basic pass). It's a little pricey, but the horses are great and it's fun to see the Forest (NOTE: the National Forest is NOT the National Park, they are different things). My horse was a psuedo-celebrity (featured... More

Although not originally part of our plan, we decided to ride at Apache stables the day prior to our scheduled time. The stables are very easy to find. The grounds are a stable - this is a non-nonsense operation. The wranglers and woman who checked us in were friendly, talkative and informative. We did the one hour ride - our... More

When we told the kids that we'd be visiting the Grand Canyon, and that there were mules that took people up from the bottom, both asked if we could do the same. Unfortunately, we'd no plans to go down. However, they then asked if we could go horse riding. Luckily, the Apache Stables was nearby. That said, I then forgot... More

We chose this activity because we couldn't book a mule ride along the rim of the Grand Canyon. The one hour trail ride was a nice alternative. The guides are experienced and very helpful. They selected the right horse for each rider. The teens in our group had never been on a horse so it was a great experience, although... More

Did the 2 hour ride as a novice. Over all it was an excellent ride with many sights and sounds of the flora and fauna to take in. The experienced guide and handler was a plus. I plan to come back as a graduated novice to ride more adventures.

We took a 1 hour guided trail ride. This was a good alternative to riding the mules into the canyon. There were two guides with our group of around 12 people. We travelled slowly with one stop to make sure everyone's equipment was working properly. Our guides also paused several times to make sure everyone was okay. We felt very... More

The horses were schooled properly and the Wranglers were no nonsense cowboys. Follow their rules and you will enjoy the ride and horses. Safety first is the best way to go. I ride Hunter Jumper horses and have two of my own. Have had them for 33 years and know the amount of money that I spend to keep them... More

My husband and I were worried after reading the reviews, but the kids were set on trying horseback riding. It would be the first time for both of them who are 12 and 9 so we went for it. The woman we made the reservation with and checked in with was very nice. When I called they made it clear... More
