Horseback riding in these settings allows visitors to imagine the days of the old west when pioneers, outlaws and lawmen ranged through the vast open spaces of Utah and Arizona. Horseback riding opportunities are available in several places in the Grand Canyons region.
Outfitters provide horseback riding tours at Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Kodachrome Basin State Park, Duck Creek Village and mule rides are available during the season at the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.
Guest ranches offer riding experiences and one outfitter also offers multi-day rides. Guided rides give visitors an opportunity to view the scenic wonders of the region without the strains of hiking and also provide the thrill of a western horseback experience.
