I have only ridden a horse twice in my life, but the horses at Dalton Brothers are very well trained. You just need to know how to tell them to stop, go, and turn left or right. Otherwise, for a beginner, the horses just follow the lead horse and you're free to enjoy the landscape. Horseback riding was a great way to see the valleys, as some of trails can be steep, narrow, and slippery with dust. There was a man who fell off of his horse toward the beginning of the ride. He wasn't hurt, but it scared him enough that he went back to the ranch and didn't complete the ride. If you're a beginner, you really need to be careful and pay attention, but I wouldn't characterize the experience as dangerous at all. The horses seem very well cared for and it seems the Dalton Brothers love animals, judging by the menagerie of cats, dogs, geese, fancy pigeons with feathery feet, African Grey parrots, chickens, and so on. Don't bring your DSLR, though. It'll just bounce around, giving you bruises, and your pictures will be blurry. Enjoy your ride!
