A memorable visit of the canyon in an authentic fashion. Good horses and an excellent guide from the local canyon tribe. Archeology and beautiful views. The only drawback is that the price is measured by the hour instead of by the visit ( half day or full day for example). Since horses don't always walk as fast as one would... More

As one of the injured members of a previous review, I wanted to weigh in. I am an experienced rider and was the organizer of this trip, having used Justin's before. Past experience was very good. I had done a 4 and a 2 hour ride through the Canyon and felt safe during both rides. James was our guide. Good... More

We enjoyed our two hour ride. The horses were calm and well trained. The guide was very informative.

4 of us went for a supposed 5 hour ride to Mummy Cave. We were led by Ramone, an 18 year old family member. This was apparently his first time to take a group by himself on this tour. Before saying any more, Ramone did his best with our group with equipment that was not adequate. His only fault was... More

We have long wanted to ride horses here, made an appointment and everything started off just fine. My husband and I went with our guide and his Grandson. The horses seemed healthy and strong. I am a safety conscious and conservative rider; I consider myself a competent rider, not an expert, and I like to be aware of my horse... More

Just was very professional and James was a great guide with a great since of humor. James was also concerned about our safety and how we rode. The horses seemed well taken care of and clean and also well trained. The canyon ride is fascinating with great scenery and petroglyphs all around. You should not hesitate to book your horse...

Wow! Had an amazing ride through the Canyon starting at Spider Rock. The trail down is very steep and probably not recommended for the inexperienced rider or faint of heart. James is an excellent guide, knowledgeable and easy to approach when asking questions about horses, the land, ruins, petroglyphs-you name it. We enjoyed riding horses Birdie and Tootsie who were...

My girlfriend and I are very happy with the service and experience of this tour. We are both intermediate experience riders and we got great horses. My horse, Dusty, was a little skiddish though. Had a little scare when I took off my pack to hang it on the saddle horn. He thought it sounded like a rattle snake and... More

This was a great tour. Justin was great. He's been doing horse tours in the canyon for 38 years and grew up in the canyon. He was a great guy. The horses were well behaved and cared for. I would recommend this tour to anyone. I think he offers jeep tours as well.

Justin's is a tough act to review. We are both experienced horse-folk and did the full day (8 hours and 15 miles) ride through most of Canyon de Chelly. This required a somewhat technical and potentially unnerving ride down 1000 feet from the east rim to the canyon floor; definitely worth the experience, but not recommended for novice riders. We...
