The trail guide was very knowlegable about the area, the horses well trained. The 2 hour ride took us to some lovely veiew points in the awe inspiring Snow Canyon. A good afternoon activity.

I spoke with Patty on the phone to plan our half day ride. She had some great suggestions and had everything well planned when we arrived. Our wrangler, Matthew, was super friendly and the horses were nicely tempered. We talked about the plants, animals and history of the Snow Canyon area. Matthew knew it all. The ride was so scenic...

When I called and made my horseback riding appointment I was told I had to give my card number to hold the reservation. I was also told that I would receive directions to the park via text message. The day of the appointment came and I still hadn't received the directions so I tried several times to call for directions.... More

It is sad that when someone doesn't show up for their reserved ride (even though they tell you they are coming to the ride when they are 10 minutes late), that they must make up these false allegations and untruths to justify their bad behavior. More

Go early before it gets too hot (and before the masses get out of bed and into your photos!!). Only 15 mins from St George.

Our family enjoyed a sunset trail ride with Matt and his son Isaac in Snow Canyon. The scenery in Snow Canyon is wonderful and did not require any "edge-of-the-cliff" riding. The horses were very well-mannered and sure-footed. Everyone in our family, from experienced rider to inexperienced (usual) observer, was very comfortable. Matt and Isaac were helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining.... More

Have no fear, this ride is pretty much for all level levels. From the very beginning wrangle Matthew will put your mind at ease by matching you up with a steed which will suit your skill. He will give all a brief lesson on the ins and outs of how to maneuver your trusty mount, then off you go into... More

It was a nice way to see the scenery, the horses were a little slow and elderly acting. Couldn't really hear what the guide was saying. My children had a fun time.

The terrain In Snow Canyon is primarily Navajo sandstone and lava rock. This type of terrain prevents the horses from traveling at a rate of speed. They must be careful where and how they step so as not to dislodge their rider or misstep and injure themselves. The Park's terrain does not allow for an "adventurous" ride and the Park... More

The trail ride was amazing! The scenery was beautiful and the tour guide was fun and informative. He knew a lot about the area, how the bluffs and rock formations were formed as well as local vegitation. It's a great ride for riders of all experience levels.
