Our family of three cancelled a nose to tail ride at Zion to ride with Sara and Mike while the family we were traveling with rafted in Page. Sara and Mike were super personable, and we enjoyed getting to know them throughout the morning. Our daughter has riding experience, so they generously both went out on the two hour ride so that Sara could do some trotting with our daughter while my wife and I simply rode our horses at a walking pace with Mike, though we traveled as a group. We each got an individual lesson/refresher on a horse chosen specifically for our size and experience, and the two hour ride started after all that. They know each horse's personality, even making an adjustment mid-ride as my horse was taking advantage of my inexperience, which Sara sensed would leave me frustrated. This is no green rolling hills ride of course, but there was variety and beauty typical of the area. We saw an antelope and her youngster and lots of jackrabbits. Great fun, and delightful folks. To our happy surprise they took photos and video on their camera that they offered to email to us. That kind of personal touch doesn't happen often, particularly without some added charge. We can't speak highly enough of Sara and Mike and our experience.

Me and my boyfriend were looking for a nice place to ride horses. We considered to ride at Bryce Canyon or even the Grand Canyon, but with all companies it seemed they only offered tours where the horses would just walk and there would be no challenge for us at all. But then we found Sentinel Rock and it was a great experience! Sara adjusts every ride and horse to every individual. She never rides the same trail so the horses won't get bored and go in automatic mode. That meant that we could ride ourselves on horses that suited our expectations and experience. Although the landscape wasn't really as spectacular as said, Sara told us great stories about the surroundings and her own life. After two hours we were very fulfilled and glad that we went riding with Sentinel Rock. It may cost a little more than the other companies, but it is totally worth it!

My girlfriend and I took my parents for a ~3 hour ride with Sarah and Mike and had a great time! The area is beautiful, and their location is easily accessible from Page or Kanab. Sara has a relationship with each horse and was able to select horses to specifically fit the level of each of our riders. We all had a great time!

Sarah has the best horses. This is no nose to nose trail ride. We had not been on horses in a long time and Sarah made us very comfortable. The horses are so well trained and Sarah let us do what we wanted with the horses. The scenery is beautiful and the ride was about 3 hours long. It was definitely worth the 30 min drive from Kanab.

We are a family of 3 utter novices when it comes to horses. But our 6 year old daughter was very keen to do a trail ride - and of course she is too young to do so. Sara was so accommodating that she took us on a 2-hour simple trail ride and she walked on foot with our daughter the whole way, allowing her to ride for herself the last half mile or so. Our daughter was then taught how to brush her horse Bandito after her ride and allowed to give him a special treat too. My wife and I could amble along at our own pace on our horses. These horses are gorgeous, healthy specimens and trained professionally to respond to each rider's capabilities. We had a very special morning here.
