Bad service, unfriendly staff only caring about selling their rides. Horses tied for hours in the blazing sun then bridled carlessly (one horse had its bridle right over its eye on one side but nobody cared), the riders being complete beginners were given 30 seconds instructions not safety, no helmets nothing. Wouldn't recommend it to beginners. Neither to experienced riders as there is only large group riding in walk one behind the other.

Our families took a morning tour, the youngest of us was 9 years old. We all had our own horses, we were out about two and a half hours, the guides were very friendly and patient. The horses were very calm. We ended up on the rim of part of Bryce Canyon, which was fantastic. They also took individual pictures of us on the horses, no extra charge for them, we did tip the guides. It was the first time on a horse for many of our kids.

When I was in the area I booked two rides with Ruby's, the 4.5 hour Thunder Mountain Trail, and the 5.5 hour Willis Creek ride. The two rides could not have had more different scenery, but both JUST stunning! The first ride I did was Thunder Mountain. Steep switchbacks and a hogback with drop offs, the horses handled it all just fine. Our cowboy guide was such fun, really knew the area and lots of funny stories. The views of the Red Canyon were beyond belief! The next day, we did the Willis Creek ride, a different cowboy guide, every bit as fun and knowledgeable! The views were entirely different, a slot canyon, I have never seen anything like Willis Creek before. There are some steep parts to descend and ascend Willis/Sheeps Creek, but the horses handled it just fine. My horse was far more energetic than the Thunder Mountain one, both terrific horses. Next time I am in Bryce I shall use Ruby's again and check out some of their other rides. I could also see doing Willis Creek again, an amazing spot.

I took the half day ride into Losee Canyon, in Red Canyon. We stayed in the Ruby Inn Campground and it was convenient to walk down to catch the shuttle. The scenery was beautiful but different from Bryce. The guides took good care of us and the horses were good. I'd recommend this trip.
