Excellent fun and the scenery was incomparable. Incredible views! We've done this before at a ranch outside Zions park but Bryce Canyon is naturally set up for a horse trail ride. Would do this again in a heartbeat.

They horses are great, and the guides are fun and know the horses to well. This is a must if you go, you learn, laugh, and see so much.
