This is a most relaxing ride through the forest. Frank the wrangler was fun to chat with and took pictures of riders as they requested. They made sure everyone was comfortable and did an excellent job of fitting the equipment. Don’t expect great views, most of the ride is along a somewhat dusty trail among the trees. However the trail comes out at the north rim and the view there is breathtaking! The horses and a few mules are quiet and well mannered. A couple of our group had never ridden before and had no problems.

Our cowgirls were not only BEAUTIFUL, they were kind , professional and constantly checked in with the group to make sure we were comfortable in the saddle. Then you to SHANNON for taking our pictures too!! Thank you thank you I highly recommend

It's a really great experience! I used to ride horse when I was young. But that time I only ride around 5-10 mins and with someone hold the house. This time the ride is around 1.5 hour. It's pleasant and not hurt the body too much. The trail we went is beautiful. The only thing I think can be improved is if they can stop not he peak of the trail let us enjoy a little more of the view and took some pictures that will be great.
