This was one of the top highlights of our entire trip! The guide Hank was funny and knowledgeable and put everyone at ease. The views were absolutely incredible, and seeing the canyon from the rim and the floor really gives a great perspective. I would definitely recommend this trip. They also take a great pic of you on the horse... More

Our guide, Brian, was personable & knowledgeable. I am a bit nervous about heights, and his demeanor made me feel more confidant in this endeavor. My whole family had such a wonderful time. Thanks!

Burly cowboys who seem a little brusque at first, turn out to be funny and warm hearted - our little girl (8) was shaking up her horse at the start and would have not done this amazing adventure had it not been for cowboy Hank's persuasion - by the end, she loved it and it wouldn't have been the same...

It was amazing. One of my bucket list dreams accomplished. My two children felt relaxed and safe knowing we were with experienced riders. We were told the horses are more comfortable riding close to the edge so don't be afraid. My son who has suffered with vertigo put all his trust in his horse...he said it was a piece of... More

A "must do" on your visit to Bryce Canyon! One of the top highlights of the entire week. Gives you a unique perspective of this very special place that you won't get any other way.

We went on the 3hr ride into Bryce Canyon, it was brilliant. The horses and mules are very well behaved and excellently schooled. You don't need to have any previous riding experience as the horses know exactly what to do. The Cowboys are friendly, informative and knowledgable. The set up is very professional but I was so glad we booked... More

This was totally one of our Highlights on our roadtrip through the Nationalparks. Everything was very well organized and the staff was very friendly. At the beginnig we were a huge group. But they splited us up in smaller groups with maybe 10 horses per group. So it was totally fine. They gave me the laziest horse they said. But... More

We took the 2 hour ride to the bottom of the canyon. The views are breathtaking. The staff was excellent and worked hard to make sure everyone in the group was having a good ride. This is my second ride with them and I will be back again. This is the best value you can spend in the park. There... More

My fear of heights and edges was not entirely vanquished but I trusted Anaconda to do his job and he did it well. No other way would I have been able to see the truly remarkable and otherworldly sights available on the half day Bryce Canyon trail ride. You ride down, stop and get off for a stretch, water and...
