During our round trip through the American Southwest, we stumbles across Sara and Mike's Sentinel Rock Horseback Adventures. Riding with them was an amazing experience. After arriving, Sara and Mike introduced us to our apparently gentle and well trained horses. As both of us only had little or no experience in riding, Sara took the time to teach us the basics in the round pen. Both our horses, Kaddi and Kahlua, were amazing.
After the lesson, Sara and Mike took us out in the Grand Staircase Escalante-National Monument. Our horses led us safely through the beautiful scenery of the monument. We took narrow trails through the fields and up and down dry creek beds with the local wildlife (mainly gophers and jackrabbits) routinely accompanying us. Unfortunately, no antelopes were in sight, but we loved it nevertheless. The ride itself lasted about two-and-a-half hours. Along the way Sara and Mike made sure to provide us with drinking water and took plenty of picture of us riding.
After returning to the ranch, we were allowed to treat the horses. Kaddi and Kahlua both were willing to shake hands/hooves with us. Maybe Sara will show you also what horses do when speaking of "foot". Afterwards we were allowed to help feed the horses, hose them down and lead them back to their paddock.
Sara and Mike were quite patient and wonderfully friendly people. Overall, the ride was a great and very personal experience. It made you feel like you were out riding with friends.
