Riding a horse along beautiful trails is a great way to tour the natural wonderland of Zion National Park. Which is fitting, as Zion also means wonderland.
The horse will do the work of carrying you into the scenic areas. While horseback riding, you will be whisked into beauty and away from the crowds. Before there were National Parks and cities, the west was home to the wild. It was a picture of native beauty.
The West was a place where Cowboys explored and were in awe of the boundless unsettled terrain. They rode by horseback, so they took only their most prized possessions. They moved herds of cattle, and traveled all day and night. During your horseback riding adventure, there won’t be gunslingers and saloons, but you will be able to explore the areas near Zion National Park that Cowboys roamed. You will set your eyes on western settings, experiencing the West as the cowboys did during the Wild West. Bring out your true pioneer spirit.
