What people are saying about Utah

Didn’t know what to expect as this was my first time on a horse in over 20 years. Couldn’t have been more pleased with the horse I rode. His name was Buddy. My wife and daughter were with me and all the horses were incredibly well mannered. The staff was top-notch as well. The hour that you get flies by, but enjoyable as one could hope. Highly recommend

Would HIGHLY recommend this activity! This was my first time riding a horse and our guide made me feel at ease the whole time. They were so encouraging and even told me I was a "natural"! Not to mention all the horses are so well trained and easily follow the guide and directions on the path! Great first experience made me want to ride horse more!

I recommend this adventure !!! Blake was amazing at coaching my hubby and I throughout the ride as I was very nervous at the beginning. I enjoyed myself so much the one hour adventure felt like ten minutes. Time flies when you’re having fun!!! Thank you Blake!!!!

Great day, great staff. They were great with my wife who was very nervous at the start but gained confidence and felt safe soon after the start of our ride. The views were great. We highly recommend them.

Easy ride to a beautiful slot canyon. Well trained horses and Blake, our guide was terrific! Well worth the price. Fun!
