I signed up for the Ruby's three hour ride expecting to ride through Bryce Canyon. We were surprised to learn we were going to ride through Red Canyon instead. Now, part of this surprise was my fault. I did not look at the ride description more closely. However, when you sign up for an activity advertised under Bryce Canyon National... More

Took a wagon ride with Dave and "J". What fun! Slow ride and lots of conversation with the other passengers and the Cow Boy Poetry was cool. Dave let the kids drive which made it fun for them. We will do this ride again for sure!

I had a mule for my ride. He behaved well. The instruction was lacking. I let them know I had no experience riding. The person helped me get on the mule and gave me instructions that lasted under a minute. The guide I had was good. I was tense at first but relaxed after awhile. As others mentioned this ride...

So much fun and the smell of horse sweat in the evening you just can't bet it. Good guides and loads of fun to "boot"

You must do this. We took the "half day" (3 hour) ride and it was amazing. Scary at times but I thought it was a great way to push my kids boundaries. The staff was really good at pairing horses with rider ability. Our guide (Shawn) was both entertaining and educational about the canyon's past present and future (and full... More

They leave their horses completely saddled up all day in the blazing hot sun. The extra weight & heat is not good for the horses

Keegan was our guide and he did a great job! He is still in high school, but was very enthusiastic about Bryce and he loved the horses. There were some problems with my horse and he was very patient and helpful. He also helped my niece with her saddle during the ride. We took the 1 1/2 trip and it... More

Half day ride is not worth it. Take the hour to hour and half ride. The guides were awesome but the ride itself was boring. There were a few surprises but otherwise just eh. The trail itself was a bit challenging and if you are afraid of heights this trail is NOT for you. If you are afraid of drop... More

We took the 3 hour ride for $85 per person. I am not an experienced rider and told the guides that. I was given Hoodoo to ride -- the perfect horse for me! There were 17 riders in our group and we were right in the middle. It was a quiet, peaceful journey through the canyon. If riders want safety... More
