Our three-hour horseback ride with Canyon Trail Rides was the ideal introduction to Bryce Canyon. On horseback, we were able to see far more of the park, and in much less time, than if we had been on foot. The ride was enjoyable and our...More

This horse/mule ride was amazing. Joe was our leader and made me feel more confident. I say "more"because I was quite nervous. As described before, this is not for the faint of heart! The hairpin turns and steep drop offs were slightly intimidating. There was...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.
