Amazing tour!
Deborah_H, Nov 2022
Me and my three friends had a really great time doing the horseback riding! Even though we had no previous experience with horses, we really enjoyed it. The horses were super calm and our guide was super kind too. We definitely recommend it!
Above all expectations!
Felix_L, Nov 2022
It has been an exceptional good experience! Guy, our tour guide is very proficient with horses and trained them very well which made it quite easy to ride for us even though we were riding for the first time. While riding through Monument Valley you will get a completely new experience and feel a different spirit compared to just driving through and taking pictures on the highway. I can highly recommend this tour!
Best horse ride company out there!
Marcelle_A, Nov 2022
I had one of the best experiences of my life with this company. Micaela was such a beautiful person to share the experience with. The price was so good and gentleman Jack was the perfect horse to ride on. She answered every question I had and I'm beyond thankful she was so gracious enough to share her knowledge with me. Will definitely be back to ride with them again!

Monument Valley Private Horseback tour
Ruth_E, Sep 2022
Highly recommended. Took the tour today and it is a highlight so far of my vacay. Our guide, Lewis, was very informative about the monuments plus he was an excellent leader taking care of the less experienced in the group. He was very friendly and you could tell he was passionate about what he was doing plus his Navajo culture. What a great time.
A great place to ride
Aaron_F, Sep 2022

A horse ride in the...
Irene_B, Jul 2022
A horse ride in the Monument Valley is for sure a unique experience. We had great fun, even though we had no previous experience with horses. But the horses were really smart and calm and our guide was helpful in explaining how to walk and trot with them, as well as telling us some stories about the valley! Overall it was a very beautiful and nice experience!
David_B, Jul 2022
We had a surreal private sunset tour and it was magical. Our kids 8 & 11 loved it even though one of them was previously deathly scared of horses. They took extra time to work with her and get her comfortable so that she could actually have a good time. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you for everything!!!
Ella_F, Jun 2022
JR & our guide were amazing!! From hearing about her family’s 4 generations in the valley, her 102 year old grandma who knew how to weave Navajo rugs, and the incredible landscape. Everything was so amazing & we’ll absolutely be back someday! And I do hope to see you in Hawaii!
A Morning Warmup Ride
David_C, May 2022
Marvin was a friendly guide. The scenery and horses were great. A perfect morning to start our visit to Monument Valley.
Lack lustre tour guide
Paige_L, Apr 2022
Stunning views, lacked any sort of narrative / information about monument valley and the Navajo culture during the tour. Dissapointing. The experience could have been so much more. Opted to take the tour as there was so many good reviews, perhaps not as lucky with the guide as others.
Response from Host, May 2022
I’m so sorry that our guide wasn’t informative on our cultural during your tour…Thank you for the update of your tour. Things well be taking care of with our guides.

Great experience! Harrison was my tour guide and shared a lot of information about the area and Navajo culture. It's a great tour if you want to get off the beaten path but still get a great view of Monument Valley!

What a wonderful trip out on horseback. We enjoyed the sunset and all the insight of the guide Trennen (sp). We enjoyed ourselves and the weather was perfect. The sun lit up the sky and was beautiful.

Mellany_G, Feb 2022
The scenary and horse were very beautiful and I enjoyed much more than I thought I would! Trevan was very engaging and took some beautiful photos of me since I traveled there alone; he also spoke to me about Navajo culture and I learned a few words as well. Will bring my family back one day take part in this wonderful experience!!
Response from Host, Apr 2022
I'm glad Trevan accommodated you with a very pleasing horse tour with our company. I sure hope we can accommodate you again soon.
birthday road trip
Candy_G, Nov 2021
this was a mother daughter road trip with 2 of out closest friends. we decided to go in the evening to catch the sun set. the business is family owned and they are some of the nicest, professional trainers I've ever met. there were 6 total in the party and the family made sure that we were partnered to the right horse. with a quick safety lesson we headed off. its a easy trail with one small hill to go down. Their fathered was with us and he talked about the land, points of interest and even sang for us. overall it was fun and a highlight in our road trip.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Our Family are grateful you took this time to do a horse tour with your family. We are happy to hear you all enjoyed this horse tour. It would be a pleasure to accommodate you and your family soon again.
