Traveler Tips

It IS the desert, so temps can get chilly at night so dress appropriately!
Bring your camera and have your phone charged so that you can take lots of pictures
We rode in January so it was a bit chilly for our sunset ride, luckily I had a jacket and hat - dress accordingly!

My daughter and my...
Lucy_J, Mar 2023
My daughter and my boyfriend and I went on the horseback Ride and Barbecue. It was an amazing way to see the canyon and the beauty of the desert. The guides were amazing and the horses were wonderful. The food was delicious as well. It was a great experience and I highly recommend going on this tour. If I could give it 6 stars, I would.
Great experience!
Dana_M, Mar 2023
Great experience overall. The wranglers were so knowledgeable and took such good care of the horses. The trail ride itself was long and so much fun! The food was outstanding!
“Limited Edition Water Ride”
Chelsea_A, Mar 2023
It was a great experience! We didn’t get the beautiful sunset because it was overcast- we got the “limited edition water version” per one of our cowgirls! It has been raining the most it has in the area for years- we were able to take our horses and mules through multiple streams and rivers. Made for a very unique experience! Dinner was excellent as well. Wear layers, and bring gloves!!
Great experience
Nancy_R, Mar 2023
This experience was a very well executed trip. From the pick up at the hotel to the trip to the ranch; and the riding was easy and enjoyable. The wranglers were helpful and easy to work with. The meal was fantastic. We had a bit of rain on the trip and upon our return we were greeted with drinks and a warm room and a superb dinner. I would recommend this event to anyone any age . Thanks to all who make this trip wonderful
Excellent tour to experience

Everything from start to the finish the hospitality and the ranch hands support on our trek. The scenery also was amazing.
Love love Kelly and Hailey!
NALENI_S, Feb 2023
Kelly and Hailey are the best guides and take pride in what they do. My horse was vegas , she was good girl. All the other folks on the tour were so friendly, it was an awesome experience and I loved the fire pit and s’mores afterwards
Breath taking scenery and experience !

Myriam_V, Feb 2023
The views were amazing. Food was really really good and everyone was really friendly and welcoming. We highly recommend.
HAD A GOOD TIME, Meal was great!
Ronald_W, Feb 2023
From the novice rider to the experienced, this excursion is for you. We had someone who had never ridden before and she had a great time. It was very cold. I learned that the temperature was about ten degrees colder out by the canyon than it is in Vegas. That would have been good to know for preparing. The food was delicious. One of our party got the salmon and she said it was better than what was served to her the night before at a restaurant in Vegas. The steak was huge and delicious. The wranglers were attentive and super nice. The pre-ride instructions were excellent. An overall great experience.
The wranglers were great!...
Marcia_J, Feb 2023
The wranglers were great! The food was very plentiful (come with an empty stomach). The steak was an absolute mouthwatering delight. I rode licorice and he was very mild and gentle. This is an absolute must do in Vegas!
Loved it!
deevee44, Feb 2023
Had a great time! “Cowboys and girls were very friendly and helpful. The ride was slow pace giving you time to really enjoy the view. We are seniors and had no problems getting on or off the horses. Dinner was fit for a king with large delicious steaks and chicken. We would definitely recommend this for any age.
Poor experience
I think it’s time for the owner to give up the business. He seems totally disinterested in his guests and was actually quite rude in his manner. The horses are kept in very poor conditions and appear depressed. Would not recommend.
10/10 definitely recommend!
Samantha_P, Feb 2023
Great experience! We had so much fun and would definitely recommend! All the wranglers were so friendly and knowledgeable.
The wranglers are...
Christy_G, Feb 2023
