Great sunset ride, wonderful guides, beautiful & well behaved horses Thank you Micaila & Meryl (horse guides)
A horse ride in the...
, Jul 2022
A horse ride in the Monument Valley is for sure a unique experience. We had great fun, even though we had no previous experience with horses. But the horses were really smart and calm and our guide was helpful in explaining how to walk and trot with them, as well as telling us some stories about the valley! Overall it was a very beautiful and nice experience!

We had a surreal private sunset tour and it was magical. Our kids 8 & 11 loved it even though one of them was previously deathly scared of horses. They took extra time to work with her and get her comfortable so that she could actually have a good time. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you for everything!!!
, Jun 2022
JR & our guide were amazing!! From hearing about her family’s 4 generations in the valley, her 102 year old grandma who knew how to weave Navajo rugs, and the incredible landscape. Everything was so amazing & we’ll absolutely be back someday! And I do hope to see you in Hawaii!
A Morning Warmup Ride

Lack lustre tour guide
, Apr 2022
Stunning views, lacked any sort of narrative / information about monument valley and the Navajo culture during the tour. Dissapointing. The experience could have been so much more. Opted to take the tour as there was so many good reviews, perhaps not as lucky with the guide as others.

Beautiful Ride and Scenery!

The scenary and horse were very beautiful and I enjoyed much more than I thought I would! Trevan was very engaging and took some beautiful photos of me since I traveled there alone; he also spoke to me about Navajo culture and I learned a few words as well. Will bring my family back one day take part in this wonderful experience!!

birthday road trip
, Nov 2021
this was a mother daughter road trip with 2 of out closest friends. we decided to go in the evening to catch the sun set. the business is family owned and they are some of the nicest, professional trainers I've ever met. there were 6 total in the party and the family made sure that we were partnered to the right horse. with a quick safety lesson we headed off. its a easy trail with one small hill to go down. Their fathered was with us and he talked about the land, points of interest and even sang for us. overall it was fun and a highlight in our road trip.

Best way to experience Monument Valley
, Nov 2021
This was probably the most fun and peaceful activity I did while visiting Arizona. I would suggest calling them before you arrive to make sure someone receives you as they stay busy with tours. Our guide was super cool and patient with us as we are not experienced horse riders 😅 he educated us a bit about the Navajo nation and the monument valley. I would highly suggest doing this tour.
