If you decide to take a horseback ride with us while you are here in Utah, here are answers to some of our most commonly asked questions.

What Shall I Wear?
What Shall I Wear?

Be sure to wear good footwear (not sandals), wear long pants, and wear a tight fitting hat when you go out horseback. At higher elevations it becomes very easy to get a sunburn so have a long-sleeved shirt or at least a lot of sunscreen. It is wisest to bring a rain jacket of some kind, even if we end up just tying it to the saddle or leaving it at the ranch because here in the Zion/ Bryce Canyon National Park area, storms can come out of nowhere. If coming during the winter, I reccomend the warmest socks you can find and mittens rather than gloves.

Will I be Allowed to Run on my Horse?
Will I be Allowed to Run on my Horse?

Short Answer: Maybe.

Long Answer: Most people who have been hurt on a running horse were people who did not want or expect to be on a running horse in the first place, or were arrogant and unwilling to listen to instruction. Whether you run or not depends on your riding ability and on how well you receive instruction at a walk and trot. 

   Being in the Zion and Bryce Canyon  National Park area, the terrain here is at some places quite rugged, so there are areas of our ride where we are able to hit higher speeds and there are other areas where the mountain terrain requires that we walk slowly. Simply put- we put safety first for both your sake as well as for your horse's sake. 

What Should I Pack for the Day Ride?
What Should I Pack for the Day Ride?

You will either be given your own saddlebags for the horseback ride, or we may even bring a pack horse with us, so bring plenty of water and a lunch. Our trsils here are right between Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks, some of the most beautiful country in the world, so many riders also like to bring a camera.

Will I Slow People Down if I Don't Want to Run While they Do?
Will I Slow People Down if I Don't Want to Run While they Do?

Absolutely not! One of the most important aspects of our horsemanship (which you will be taught) is that your horse is only your own horse, and he needs to listen only to your directions. If you are the only one in your group who wants to ride slow, you will be able to keep your horse at a walk if you follow our insruction. (Remember, we also have some "babysitter" horses you can choose from who only want to walk.)

    In addition, a wrangler will be there to help whoever wants to take it easy while another wrangler is helping the faster group. You also will not be left behind for long as the running group will need to stop a while to rest their horses, allowing the walking group to catch up.
