Great ride down into the canyon.

Four members of my family took the mule ride down into the canyon. You get to see parts of the canyon up close and from a different vantage than you do from the overlooks. It was... read more

We chose the 2 hour ride. My 10 year old daughter wanted to experience horseback riding through the canyon despite not being the most comfortable on horses. Our trail guide, Clay, was fabulous. He was great with my daughter and helped her feel comfortable throughout the entire ride. The time went by really quickly as he pointed out facts about... More

My wife, 3 boys (ages 12 - 22), and I took the 2 hour tour in July, 2016. The trail ride is a great way to go down into the depths of the canyon without the exertion of a hike. My wife has a lot of experience with horses, but the rest of us had a total of 2 rides... More

My daughter and I went on the 1/2 day Peek-a-Boo Loop and it was a highlight of our week vacation to the Southwest. Views were breathtaking, guides were wonderful and we felt safe the whole day! Worth every penny!!

Despite of butt sore after the ride, it was awesome. you get to see the canyon floor and experience cowboy life! just that if you new to riding, you probably spend most of your time playing with your horses instead of looking at the scenery =) the half a day tour starts quite early though, at 8am. And a bit... More

Our family took the 3 hr Bryce Canyon Trail Rides. It is well worth the cost and time to see the magnificent beauty deep inside the Canyon. Our horses/mules were well trained (even as they ventured on the very edge of the trail) and our guide was excellent as he pointed out the various land marks.

My daughter was tired of hiking so she and I decided to take the canyon trail ride. After we got use to the surefooted animals we could relax and enjoy the view. Our guide was not the best, telling us silly stories about how the rocks got their names. I'm sure he thought he was being funny but we thought... More

It is an adventure for sure. Some of the trails were scary if you are nervous about heights. I'm a nervous Nilly. My husband and son found it perfect. You see some spectacular sights. We went on the 1/2 day loop tour. Our guide was Joe. He was great. I made a mistake on the time of our tour. Were... More

Seasoned riders here. We own our own mules and my kids have been riding since they were 3. The ranch hands picked mules based on experience, which was nice. The ride down was breathtaking! I took so many beautiful pictures. We had a blast. Josh was our trail guide (my kids called him late for dinner). He was a hoot!... More

I have been on horses here and there but it's not something I would say is my favorite thing to do. Mostly because I am not a seasoned rider I knew that I would be paying for it later with a sore backside. I also am very afraid of heights. Our 15 year old daughter has the same feelings as... More
