Excellent ride and great views but some very steep trails close to the edge, why do the horses always walk as close to the edge as they can! Would definitely do it again though.

AMAZING! Trent was our good looking guide for the 2 hour ride. We loved it! The horses know what to do and know how to walk the paths. They slide a little going down but don't be worried it's how they handle the terrain. The...More

What is the shortest ride offered on the Canyon Trail Rides? I have absolutely no experience riding a horse/mule. Will this be a problem?

You don't need any experience riding. If you can sit in the saddle you will be OK. In our group of 6 we had some who had never ridden before and one person who walks with a cane. Everyone had a great time. There are... More
