Our family did the three hour tour on sand beach trail with our guide, Bob. Bob is a life long cowboy that was never short on stories and information. None of us were avid horse riders, so he did a great job educating us and giving us tips along the way. They did a great job matching up horses to... More

Nice horses, beautiful beautiful country. Wonderful guide, thanks Kitty, with a lot of knowledge and fun facts about the area and vegetation. We did the 3 hour morning ride, perfect October weather. Cool to start out, wear layers to shed if you go later in the year. I would think in high summer, the morning ride would be the only... More

We booked this on a lark. I had never ridden horseback so maybe not the best choice of a place to start. Arrive early! The ranch hands will have a better opportunity to pair you with a horse for your skill level. If you arrive late, you will be left with what horses have not been taken and in my... More

What a great way to let someone else do the walking - after a day of hiking. Took the 3 hour ride in the a.m. 9-12. A bit chilly at the start in mid-October, but it warmed up. There is very little climb in this ride and only a switchback or two as compared to the Bryce ride. The scenery... More

Was so excited to get going but, when I checked in two days in advance I told them that I need to use the steps to get on and off the horse and was told no problem. Well, when we got to the stables to get ready I told them I needed the steps and I was told that the... More

The guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and the horses were very well behaved. It was a great way to see some of Zion.

We booked the 3hr trip the evening before the ride and were given all the information we needed. Take the 7.30 shuttle from the visitors center, make sure you get there by 8.30 because the shuttles get backed up in summer (and double checked we were on the correct time zone so we didn't turn up in hour late -...

This trip was great. We went out with Diane as our guide and she made this ride extra special. Our daughter can't stop talking about riding with Diane and the kid. Many thanks for a great morning ride.

While staff was knowledgable like others have said, my family didn't have a good experience. Was very slow, mostly on mules, boring trail to kill 50 min ride. Maybe longer trip is better but this was total waste of time and money. We did rides up at Capitol Reef, was way better. Plus kids were given instructions to "hit the... More

Riding horses on the 1 hour Virgin River ride was a fun experience. The horses were tame, although I think they use them repeatedly throughout the day, which didn't sit well with some members of our group. You can request a helmet at the booth, but they don't offer you one. We went on a hot August day and people... More
