What a great way to spend a beautiful morning. We had so much fun riding the horses and seeing the beautiful scenery. Our guide, Mike, was informative and extremely personable. It was the favorite part of our trip.

Very easy to organise, we are from the UK so did all bookings via email which Patty organised with no problems, unlike some other activities in the area which need to be completed via telephone. We went on the more adventurous three hour tour. Matthew was a fantastic guide, incredibly knowledgable about the area, wildlife, riding and had beautiful horses.... More

We arranged our horseback ride through Red Mountain Resort, where we were staying. Matt was our trail guide. Our trail ride was in the evening (7-9 PM) so that the temperature was cooler for us and the horses. I am a novice horseback rider. I've only been on a horse a few times in my life. We had no problem... More

Matt was our guide for this ride through Snow Canyon. He was very informative about the history and geology of the area and it was well worth the ride just for that and the beautiful country. The horses were very well trained and this would be a fine ride for a novice. For more experienced riders sit back and enjoy... More

Our ride on the Gila Trail in Snow Canyon State Park was beautiful and the time passed too quickly. Matthew, our wrangler/guide, is a native of the area and provided a good narration of history and culture. The horses were gentle and easy. This is a great way to experience Snow Canyon. My foot has been bothering me, so this... More

We went on a 2 hour trail ride and were so impressed with the guide, the horses, and the beautiful scenery. Our guide knew where to go and gave us meaningful commentary. The horses were responsive and sure footed. The scenery was awesome. I would recommend Snow Canyon Trail Rides to anyone!!!

This is our 2nd ride with Snow Canyon Trail Rides. This time we enjoyed exchanging stories with our guide, Matthew on our 4 hour ride to the north rim where we dismounted and had a nice lunch while the horses rested. The horses are well-mannered, pleasant and easy to ride. Having had my own horses makes it more of a... More
