Full description
Saddle up and experience Zion National Park from a unique perspective. This is more than a typical trail ride and is great for both beginners and experienced riders. You will begin with a quick introduction and get acquainted with the horses. Learn their unique personalities as you prepare to spend the next two hours together. Your guide will demonstrate safe techniques for handling your horse. The ride begins by following a trail that winds up the side of Pine Knoll through the desert forest with an intense elevation increase. Eventually, the ride exits the forest and you'll get to see majestic sweeping views of Southern Utah and Zion National Park. At the summit, you'll pause to capture pictures that will help you remember this experience for years to come. Then, continue down the mountain, all the while learning about the area and wildlife while listening to western stories.

My family had a great time horseback riding today. Our guides, Abby and Whitney were knowledgeable, helpful, and did an excellent job matching us with the horses.

This is basically a horse ride on a trail horse. No history on the area, nothing. we were taken to one spot for a picture opportunity, but we have no clue what we were taking pictures of. we were a small group of 4, yet we could never hear the guide. basically she had a private conversation with the girl on the horse directly behind her. Horse kept wanting to graze and then run to catch up. been on a few of this and this is the first time my husband I thought it was a waste of money.
