What you'll do

This tour combines two of Southern Utah's most popular activities: exploring scenic slot canyons and horseback riding. First we will climb into the saddle at the stables and conduct a brief riding lesson for the inexperienced riders. No need to worry if you are a beginner, we have years of experience and reserve the best trained horses for our guests.

Our ride will take us to the mouth of a beautiful slot canyon where we will dismount and walk a short distance into the canyon. This incredible sandstone formation is very narrow
with walls towering several hundred feet high on either side. East Zion is the home to world class slot canyons that can be found nowhere else!

Following this stop, riders will again get in the saddle and ride back to the starting point.

You will be led by a local guide with years of horse riding experience that will also share the rich cowboy history of small town Orderville that continues to live on today.

We hope all of our guests are able to have an experience that is long lasting and impactful. We believe this is achieved when we can connect with guests in Entertaining, Educational, and Emotional ways. This is a great activity that is one of our most popular among guests. Don't miss your chance to horseback ride in East Zion!

In 1962 my great grandpa purchased our family ranch which boarders the east boundary of Zion National Park and that is where it all began. His dream was to always share this property with others from all over the world. As I grew up I would spend summer days out in the mountains doing incredible outdoor experiences unique to our area. These included Hiking, Canyoneering, Jeeping, and Horseback riding just to name a few. In time I realized how special these experiences were. For over 25 years we have shared our ranch and surrounding area inviting others to experience our story while creating their own. When guiding our visitors, no matter the activity, we focus an effort on being Entertaining, Educational, and Emotional. We create a bond that is impactful and long lasting. A collective feeling that will never be forgotten in the family.

    Our tour guide was absolutely amazing! She made us feel at ease in both her company and the horses. She was easygoing, fun and had no problem educating us on the area. This trail ride is a must out here, it was such a unique experience to see Zion and a slot canyon from horseback. Thank you so much!

    We came at a very special time of the year, in January to see the freshly fallen snow covering the mountains! Francine was our guide, and she was excellent with all the horses - and taught us well too!

    When I showed up, it was very weird. no communication with the experience person, I was lost and didn't know where to go. I messaged and called, no answer. I never received a response. When I went in, there was a lady there who said there wasn't a tour running today. She looked at me like I was crazy, or making this up. She told me she could take just me, but that I wasn't on the schedule. I was very taken aback. We went on the excursion, and the experience was fine. However, nowhere in the description did it say we were hiking. I have a broken hand and did not realize we would be climbing rocks in a slot canyon. Otherwise, I would have passed on it, as I couldn't do it safely. The woman was great, though the trail ride felt a little rushed. My horse, King, was wonderful and had a soft temperament, as well as very responsive to light pressure on the reins, as well as leg pressure.

    The horse ride was nice and the experience ran for the full hour. Slot canyon was different than expected compared to photos posted.
