We were not sure about the 1/2 day peek a boo loop, thought it might be too long. We were wrong! It was an excellent way to see the canyon, and they guide Keegan kept us together, safe, and entertained. Would definitely do again!

Highly recommend seeing Bryce Canyon by horseback with the 3-Hour ride. It takes you through all of the major sections of the park and you have plenty of time to see everything before or after the ride (to stretch your legs back out!) I've seen...More

Guides were good, whole experience was awesome. I don't like that they tell you to whip the horse if you're running behind but I guess it was for safety reasons. Horses/mules were very responsive though, you don't need to use the whip. They seem to...More

This is definitely the best way to see this stunning canyon since you cover so much more on a horse than you would be able to on foot especially in the summer heat. We went right down into the canyon, it was amazing. We saw...More

1.)I think it's understandable that the guides want participants to understand English. It could be a real problem if they give instructions to someone who can't understand them. Did you offer to translate? 2.)It's also a bit of a stretch to expect a trail riding place to offer helmets. Riding helmets were originally only used by equestrians for jumping fences. To this day, many Western riders take offense to the idea of wearing helmets and so don't even in competitions such as barrel racing. Your picture in a long evening gown would seem to indicate that you are a city dweller. Yes, people in the cities wear helmets to ride their bicycles and even place them on kids riding tricycles. It's different in the country, and you don't have to play on horses in the country if you're not used to it. Try some riding lessons at an equestrian center in a suburb back home first. I mean this seriously, as it can be a bit of a crash course to suddenly put yourself or a child on a horse when they've never even as much as petted one before.

We were standby. As per the lady in the lodge suggested, we went down to the corral and waited until the others got on their horses ( about 15-30 min) and were told immediately we were ok to ride.

We did the afternoon yesterday and it was fine. Not too hot at all. And no riding experience here and it was fine as well.
