Testimonial: Yesterday we went out with a group of about 10 riders. We loved every minute of our 90 minute trip. I was very anxious about being on a horse, at the age of 68, especially going along the rim. The rim was only a small part of the trip. Most of the time was getting there and returning. Once at the rim, we stayed a comfortable distance from the edge. We had two GREAT guides, one of whom was Lance. The horses were gentle following each other in single file. It’s a great way to explore a little more of Bryce Canyon. The two guides imparted lots of interesting facts and background of the region.

Testimonial: I took my Grandson, who has had limited riding experience,  on the all day ride. I grew up riding horses and have even ran a guest ranch with my husband for years. We had guided horse rides plus other horse activities. Ruby's Inn is a class act operation from start to finish! Kevin is the backbone of the horses. It was impressive to see the love and care he has for them. The ride and horses were amazing! I am thinking about taking my own horse back the next time and hiring Kevin as the guide!! We stayed at the campground and it was great!

Testimonial: The wife and I enjoy horseback riding. We wanted to experience a mountain ride. We had checked several places online. We decided on a half day ride up Red Canyon and booked Ruby’s Thunder Mountain Ride, The Ride awesome, the horses were great, our guide ( Kevin ) was very professional keeping everyone safe on the trail. We rode switch backs, narrow trails, the scenery was spectacular. I would recommend this ride for experienced riders, you won’t be disappointed.
