Ali was amazing
Faye_M, Sept 2023
What an amazing experience. The horses were obviously cared for, in good health and easy to ride. Ali couldn't have been a better guide. She was wonderful. 10/10 for Ali.
Beautiful trip through Red Canyon in small group
Bettina_I, Sept 2023
We were a small group of three women and the guide - this made the trip very enjoyable, private and we had a good laugh and talks. The scenery of course is amazing and the horses were very kind to us :)
Red canyon horseback ride

My wife and I had a great ride on the trails. Alley was our cowgirl guide and was great. My wife has never rode a horse before and she was a nervous wreck. Alley made her very comfortable. The two hour ride perfect for us. The views were amazing. Thank you Alley
Great Horseback Ride

We had a wonderful horseback ride through the Red Canyon with Gaylene, not sure of the spelling :-), but she was amazing. I highly recommend this to anyone who’s visiting in Bryce Canyon!

Cara_B, July 2023
The guides were so organized/efficient and explained everything clearly. The horses were cared for very well- not like others I’ve seen with ribs showing too much. The trail was spectacular and just the right length. Such a great way to see Red Rock!
Happy Trails

If a cowboy can be a salt of the earth, that's Mike. Wise, congenial, full of stories and observations about the trail and life. We were well cared for and had a great experience. Highly recommend taking a ride with Mike.
Great ride!

Sav and Ali were great to help us. Sav was a fun and attentive guide. The horses, I rode Apache, were well cared for and healthy stock. You can really tell they were well cared for. We had a great ride through the beautiful Red Canyon. Would do it again!

Took the 2 hour trail ride. Horses were perfectly matched to the riders experience and comfort level. Stress free ride. Horses know the way so enjoy the ride.
Made my trip complete!
