Had never sat on a horse in my life. The tour was still doable, because the horses went well and slowly one behind the other. . Certainly very boring for people with riding experience. 45 minutes through the forest to a viewpoint (hoodoos), group photos are taken there, no dismounting, then 45 minutes back.

We had so much fun! They are trying to keep everyone happy. We were late for our activity but they were very understanding and had no problem to work with us and rescheduled the tour for the next one. The ride was super nice and we all loved it. Thank you!

Horseback ride in the Dixie Forest passing then also on the banks of the Bryce Canyon where photos are taken by the leaders of the excursion. During the ride one of the managers takes pictures of everyone and at the end they can be received via AirDrop (therefore you must have an iPhone). The horses follow each other and you don't have to know how to ride to be able to make this trip, they have a sort of "autopilot" inserted ... but it was a good experience, riding is always beautiful and in a different context than usual it is certainly special!
