Thank you for the awesome morning on horseback thru Red Canyon at Bryce National Park. Our guides, Kevin and Jeff were both friendly, knowledgeable about both the area and horses. There is a bit of a drive from the pick up location to the corral but it was in a nice van. Would definitely recommend this company and activity.

Had to squeeze Zion and Bryce in a day. The guide was very helpful in giving tips on what places to prioritize. Well recommended for those short with time.

Excellent ride for beginners coupled together with seeing a different part of Bryce Canyon area. Very well organised and friendly team.

Kevin and Jeff were our guides and made it very enjoyable. Horses were very manageable and scenery was beautiful. Definitely recommend!

everything was very well organized and our two guides were very friendly and attentive to novices
