I was a little nervous booking this ride because my daughter is 10 years old and I had read many reviews stating how the horses/mules like to hug the outside of the trail and thought she might be a little scared. I have to say she was and so was I for about 10 seconds and then we were in... More

One of the best ways to see Bryce Canyon is from the bottom up. Of course you can walk to the canyon bottom from the rim, or make it easy on yourself by taking a trail ride. Our ride was just breath taking as we traveled the Peek-a-Boo Trail. You don't have to be an equestrian to enjoy the ride.... More

Memories to last a life time! I rode Blueberry and my husband rode Gates. Our rangler was Tim. Everyone who works with this organization from the front desk to the assistants to Tim was TOP NOTCH! We followed the suggestions made on the website and did the 3 hr trip . We highly suggest the 8 AM trip. The canyon... More

We made reservations months earlier through CanyonRides.com and the cost was $65 per rider. Riders must be 7+ years old and less than 220 pounds. Wear long pants, sneakers or boots and don't bring back packs or water bottles (camel baks, cameras and binoculars were permitted). The 2-hour tour departs from Sunrise Point and has a steep switchbacking trail that... More

This was a fabulous experience. Our guide, Josh, was patient and funny. We saw some amazing sites, and it was well worth the time and money. One hint: take a little cash in your pocket for tipping. I left my purse in the car and had to run back for tip money. Also, consider leaving your "fancy" camera in the... More

We are experienced riders and always reluctant to go on trailrides, but we have taken three rides with this outfit! We have ridden down the North Rim of Grand Canyon, ridden through Zion, and ridden through Bryce with them. Their wranglers are excellent and they gave us great horses to match our abilities. Whether you are an experienced rider or... More

This was an amazing addition to our trip. A half day ride took us out on the ridge then down into the canyon floor what a wonderful place. Having a horse or mule is the way to go. I would have NEVER been able to see the sites I did that day! The highlight of our vacation! Big shout out... More

We decided on this as kind of a last minute thing to do. We are all really glad we did! We'd hiked the Navajo Loop and Queens Garden trail the day before and it was spectacular. The things we saw on the trail ride were even better. The guides did a good job of getting those of us with little... More

This is a fantastic way to experience Bryce Canyon. Looking at the hoodoos from the Rim Trail is great. However, when you are riding the trails among the hoodoos, the scenery is superb! We took the 3 hour ride, which had a break after 1.5 hours for water and out-of-the-saddle time. Be sure to take a pocket camera for pictures.... More
