  • Julie H describes her March guided tour through Zion National Park this way…
    Highlight of my trip! Shelly is wonderful and does a good job making everyone feel comfortable no matter their skill level. The views were INCREDIBLE! She takes you on a really cool route that lets you see how unique the rocks and terrain is and finishes the trip at a high point with an excellent photo op with the valley below. It’s a perspective that you can’t get from the highly trafficked Zion and other national parks. This experience is quiet and personal. Definitely check her out when you’re in the area!


June thru September Summer Guided Horseback Tours

During hot summer months your guided horseback tour will meander through the refreshingly cool mountain scenery of Dixie National Forest, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Duck Creek Village, Mammoth Caves, The Ice Cave, and Navajo Lake. The pine trees along the creeks and meadows high on Cedar Mountain mean a day of breezy riding pleasure.

  • Gary Murphy described his fun and safe June experience like this…
    This was a beautiful and fun horseback riding experience. Shelly took us through the Virgin Valley and took time to explain all of the wonderful nature around us. This is a beautiful ride and very safe. I want to emphasize very safe. Shelly does a great job of teaching you how to handle the horses and gives a great history of Virgin Valley as well. I highly recommend this ride! Shelly is an outstanding guide and leads you on a fun trip.
