I would highly recommend Yosemite Trails Saddle Co if you are in the Yosemite/Wawona area. If you are looking for a trail activity that takes you away from the crowds of Yosemite Valley, then this is it. My family of 4 took the 1 hour trail ride and we all had a wonderful time. From the time we checked in, the staff were all very nice and helpful. My kids (11 and 9 yrs old) and husband have ridden before, but not me. Hannah, our guide, made sure that we were comfortable on our horses by giving us basic riding instructions before we set off on the trail.
We arrived earlier than our scheduled ride, but the staff offered to let us go ahead, therefore it was just the 4 of us and Hannah on the trail. The trail was very peaceful and just what you would imagine riding in a pine forest would be. We crossed 2 creeks and stopped so that Hannah can take our photos. Being away from the Valley, we did not run into hikers or other riders. Since the horses were well-trained, even a novice rider like myself was able to enjoy the trail ride. It was a very relaxing activity, with great scenery. We would definitely be back. Next time maybe for the sleigh ride in the winter.
