We had issues with reserving a tour on the website; apparently there are some (divorce-related) issues between the account holder and the manager, so even though we booked weeks in advance we didn't get a satisfying confirmation until we arrived. We had to ask the hotel if they had a phone number on file for the tour company. Worse than... More

We booked a sunset horseriding tour 1,5 hour and it was awesome! The instructors were great and helpfull. Three of our group were experienced riders and they could go at full speed. The amateurs of the group got help and were able to go in draft at last. Thanks for everything!!!

Our first experience was in August 2015. We booked our horseback ride first. We drove into the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park in the afternoon and paid... More

My husband and I booked a 2-hour sunset ride (6:00 pm start) with Black's. The drive over the dirt road to get to the stable is a bit hairy, but it's well worth it. Our Navajo guide, Billy, was amazing! Friendly, informative and considerate - we could not have asked for more. Billy pointed out the details of all the... More

We took the 3 hour horse riding tour starting at 5:30pm, we were originally going to start at 11:00 but wanted to avoid the extreme heat so requested a change quite last minute. They were really great at accommodating our request which I appreciated! The starting point is actually inside the driving trail next to a huge messa inside the... More

We made a 1 hour horse ride, which was way too short. Thanks to Marlo, our guide, for the fantastic time. There's no better way to explore the valley. Can also be recommended for beginners like us, horses are very calm.

My wife and visited the Grand Canyon, Zion, and Bryce Canyon but we both agree that horseback riding in Monument Valley was by far the highlight of the trip. While the process of checking in was a bit unorganized and overly-complex, the ride itself was absolutely breathtaking and our guide was fantastic. Can't recommend it highly enough.
