The scenery on the peek-a-boo trail is breathtaking and this is a unique way to experience Bryce. The guides are very helpful and will try and match you up with a horse/mule based on your experience (we had no prior riding experience) The mules/horses tend to walk try on the edge of the path which can be a terrifying if...

Visiting Bryce Canyon is full of amazing sights but taking the time to see the canyon on horseback was awesome. The canyon is full of hoodoos and towers that are frequently seen from a viewpoint but riding through the canyon lets you experience the magic closeup. Trail guides are informative and have a few bad jokes but a great experience.... More

We booked this rip during the last week of trail rides at Bryce. We are very glad we went. In planning our time in Utah, we thought the three hour ride would give us the best and closet exposure to the canyon. It did that plus seeing it on horseback was an extra thrill. there is a 15 minute break... More

This is inside the park itself, you meet over by the Park Lodge. They have a lot of horses and a lot of guides. The horses were great and the guides were very friendly and helpful. This ride takes you down into the canyon from sunrise point and loops back around. It's a bit narrow and steep at times but... More

I spent eight rewarding years as owner and manager of a horseback tourism business, and it was a great pleasure to experience the fantastic scenery of Bryce from the back of a good horse in the hands of this really well-run and professional operation. I know how difficult it can be to take a group of mainly novice riders on... More

Great ride that provided an up close view of hoodoos without having to hike. Staff was professional and knowledgeable. This was our son's first horseback ride and he loved it. My husband had a mule that liked to stand on the edge a lot and scared him a bit but he still loved the experience.

It was a fantastic adventure, we loved it so much! The longer tour is really better, you can see a beautiful landscape, and enjoy the horse riding for 3 hours. We recommend it for everyone!

Zion is a special place, made even more spectacular when seen from the back of a horse. Each horse was in excellent condition, quite calm and manageable. As we rode along, our guides educated us about the Park, the plants and vegetation, the wildlife sometimes encountered on the trail. My only complaint would be my saddle: it has been my... More
