We are located in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. When you arrive to our ranch, there is a dirt parking lot with a huge sign that says Horseback Riding. You go through the gate under the sign and drive up the short, well maintained dirt road, to the horses, and our office at the top of the hill. Up there you will find our office where we will sign you up then get you on your horse at the corral for your ride.

This is by far the best place to go horseback riding. They have a number of different rides ranging from one hour to 5 hours. The sunset BBQ ride is a true adventure throwback to the old west. Great BBQ dinner with cowboy entertainment and bonfire.

This was a simply amazing experience. We booked the day before and were collected from a nearby hotel in a minibus and taken to Red Rock Canyon. We completed the sunset bbq ride. Both of us were new to riding - but it was no problem. We were provided with horses to suit our ability and off we went -... More

This was the five hour ride. We started at 3000 feet elevation and went up to 5500 and back down. This was all the challenge I wanted and I am an experienced rider and mule owner. We rode mules. There were 5 other people in my group and two guides. Some didn't have much experience and they did okay. The... More

My granddaughter and I recently spent a wonderful time with Cowboy Trail Rides. We chose the two hour Canyon Rim ride. It was amazing. First, the pickup from the hotel was great as the lady who drove us (forgot her name) was so informative and knew a lot of historical nuggets about the area. When we arrived at the ranch,... More

My wife, our friends, and I all participated in the WOW ride today. It is a 5 to 5 and 1/2 hour ride that takes you up into red rock canyon national park for some of the most stunning views and overlooks you will see from the back of a horse. The staff was super friendly and welcoming from the... More

We did this two hour trail ride and it was amazing. Staff was friendly from the time they picked us up at the pick up location to the time they dropped us off. The ride was gorgeous. Loved the horses, they did a great job. Trail guides were friendly. We had a young rider in our group and Julia did... More

This was a fun ride, but definitely not for someone who has not ridden before, the terrain is rough, and a lot of up and down on the trail, not flat and smooth, as I would recommend for a "never been on a horse before" having said that, there were complete novices on the ride, unfortunately one of them fell...

We went to Vegas with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. Our group was intending to make a trip to the Grand Canyon. However, we decided against spending the entire day on that excursion. We were driving through Red Rock canyon and it is absolutely breathtaking. We passed a sign for horseback riding and the BIRTHDAY girl wanted... More
