Horseback Riding Program - If you're an experienced rider or never been on a horse, we've got the ride for you. Our wranglers will match you with a horse appropriate to your experience level and lead you on scenic rides through sandy washes, over rocky terrain, past incredible rock formations and across lush desert grasslands. For more experienced riders, loping and trotting can be incorporated into rides where the terrain allows. Lessons are also available. Horseback riding is available to children 5 years and older. Children 8 years and older may qualify for trotting and loping during rides.
