We had hoped to take a horseback ride. The park should get the word out - this concession closed in 2014. You can take your own horse into the park, but there are no longer rental horses at Peaceful Valley.

Great operation. We are experienced horsemen but decided to not haul our horses this time and do the guided tour. Horses are very well taken care of and behaved. Guides were very fun! Saw wild horses lots of prairie dogs and Bison. Highly recommend!

There's simply nothing else like it...riding your horse across the top of a butte, cautiously glancing down to enjoy the scenery without turning your stomach upside down...taking a deep breath of the sage baking in the hot sun...viewing a herd of buffalo in the distance...More

These guys will actually take your height into consideration when they pick a horse for you, and they give you a quick tutorial on how to ride a horse before you hit the trail. The other place doesn't do that. Also some of the trails...More
