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

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

We knew the trail only went through the woods, but never thought we would go at a snail's pace. Slow and boring. The path we were on was so worn there was a groove in the gound. Not much to see. If you've never ridden a horse before you might like this. But if you have ridden before this is... More

Let me begin by saying that my group and I enjoy trail rides, horses, and the company of cowboys, so this little adventure should have been fun. My husband, 10 year old daughter, a friend, 10 year old and I did the trail ride. My mother, another friend, two toddlers, one of which was my own, and my 6 year... More

My sister and I just took the 2 hour ride through the beautiful Kaibab Forest. The horses were well trained and we went up and down many hills. Our wrangler, Merle was excellent. He was helpful, laid-back and very knowledgeable about the area and the local plants and animals. Half the ride we chatted and half just relaxed and enjoyed... More

Great horses, nice trail in the forest, but disappointed with unfriendly staff and slow pace of the "nose to tail" ride. The wranglers constantly reminded you about the rules of the trail instead of narrating the trip to make it more interesting. Too slow and silent for me. Also, no helmets were available for any of the riders. Enjoyed the... More

The wranglers are very nice, but they walk the horses so slowly, it is really boring. You don't go to any real destination, just a trail through the forest. It smells amazing outside and is nice, but for the price, I want to see some overlook or something else. Even the kids were all bored. Too bad. The rim is... More

For a first time ride where safety is paramount, this is a good deal. The wranglers go to great ends to ensure noone gets hurt, almost to the point of being a nuisance. The trails are scenic but look the same from start to finish. It's such a shame the trial can't include some view of the Grand Canyon, but... More
