    Great for an absolute beginner
    George_C, May 2023
    Beautiful scenery, and a great experience for a beginner. The riding instructions were easy to follow and the horses had a mild temperament. Thank you for such a fun time!
    Awesome Experience

    Guides told stories and joked around making the ride enjoyable for both the adults and kids. Everyone from check in to guides had great personalities and made it so fun every one wants to go again soon!

    We had very enjoyable horseback riding experience. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, the horses were in excellent shape pretty easy to handle. It was a beautiful canyon ride.
    The beauty of Red Canyon...

    The beauty of Red Canyon and the opportunity to share together. The horses were well trained and easy for a beginner.
    Long and tedious

    The ride was long and repetitious. Our guide barely spoke to us and largely ignored the riders at the back of the pack.
    A ride with Kronk
    Christopher_C, Sep 2021
    The Cowboys were great and insightful leading our group and Kronk my horse was a smooth easy ride. I had a chance to ride with a Cowboy that just turned 18 with great stories. This kid even shared pictures of his recent rodeo championship in a national high school championship. I say all of this to say that these Cowboys were welcoming wanting a great experience for us just the same as i hoped to experience.
    Wonderful experience!

    Our tour with guide Whitney was great! She was knowledgeable and concerning of all her guests! She knew a lot of the history and legends of the Trail which made it even better. As experienced riders and horse owners we were extremely happy with the quality of their horses.
    Best scene ever

    It was greatly appreciated. It was a beautiful surprise scenery. Super cowboys knows well on the trails
    I would pass
    Ashley_B, Jul 2021
    We went in July at 1:00. Definitely our least favorite experience of our 7 stop RV tour across UT and AZ. The trip is a solid 3 hours and for our family was a long time on a horse. Half the time would have been great. We did trot a few bits if a horse was behind but outside of that was pretty slow hot ride. Our guide was awesome but not our favorite tour.
    Highly recommend!

    Our guide Paige was just terrific. Wonderful peaceful ride through Red Canyon with my family. Horses were beautiful and easy to ride. Highly recommend!
