Southern Utah horseback trail rides are a staple of our business and we make every effort for them to be adventurous and scenic.  Safety is our biggest concern!  Canyon Country Outfitters guides ensure that youth and adults alike feel at ease on their steed. 

Our guides will give you plenty of one on one attention.   We encourage smaller group sizes and can offer multiple guides.  Our practice is a client to guide ratios of 5:1 or better if possible. 


Trail rides can sometimes be less appealing to more experienced riders, but don’t count ours out! These short rides include; forging the Fremont River, red rock scenery, moderate traverse, varied terrain and other options along the way.  Guides are flexible with their plans and will make rides interesting and entertaining for all.  Of course, no ride is complete without some history and geology which is plentiful in this region.

It is of the utmost importance to us that before departure, you know what to expect from these rides so there are no surprises.  And guides will take care to make changes during rides to suit all participants.

All trail rides take place under the picturesque red rock cliffs near Capitol Reef National Park!  Even our 1 hour trail rides will find you in awe of the surroundings.  Expect to see various birds of prey, deer and other wildlife during your excursion.

The Canyon Country Outfitters difference is that we employ only local equine professionals with a knowledge and passion for the area!
