I rode Woodrow and my Husband had Ike, the trip down the North Rim of the Grand Canyon was amazing....moments to cherish forever. Our guide Tia was fantastic, always checking to see if we were...

Last year my wife & I took our first visit to Bryce Canyon and loved it. We hiked down the Canyon, and after we had regained the top of the trail head here came the string of horse's and mules heading down the same trail! I was not aware that Bryce had a trail ride as we had reservations elsewhere... More

We booked the half day ride to Peekaboo trail as I knew my knees wouldn't be up to the hike. It was a fabulous way to see the canyon once you were relaxed enough to realize your horse/mule knew what they were doing. I was a little nervous to start even though I used to ride a lot but our... More

My sons and I went on the 1/2 day mule ride at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. It was so much fun and with beautiful views, too! The lucky mules did all the work...highly recommend booking a trip. I have a big fear of heights, and there were some narrow parts of the trail, but I felt very... More

This was the highlight of our trip out west! Stunning views, perfect horses, and a great guide. We were beginners and had zero issues. Would have felt safer with helmets though especially for our kids. Overall we loved it.

We loved our Canyon Trail Ride at Bryce Canyon! (And, yes, we know it's not really a canyon!) Our trail guide, Eddie, was perfect, laidback but helpful, and from a local town. One person on the ride was a bit nervous, and he led her mule the whole way, and was both comforting and encouraging to her. I was next... More

We rode and laughed and had a great time during our 2 hour ride. Our horses were typical horses and very "gasey" and with me being the last one in our group, it was a little pungent and even dusty but such a humorous adventure. The guides were good and well mannered using yes ma'am often.

The four hour Peek a Boo trail ride was four hours of my life well spent. The ride takes you to places you probably would not see on your own. It takes a few minutes to get used to the animals riding so close to the trail's edge, but once you relax the trip is great fun. The trail guides... More

Booked Peek a boo trail months in advance but almost had second thoughts during the night before's thunder storm! Shouldn't have worried, a little rain didn't dampen the great time we had, posibly the best way to get up close and personal with Bryce Canyon. Matt and Tucker our guides soon had novice horsepeople feeling at ease and we're still... More
