Great experience!
Lori_E, Jun 2023
This is a must do! We really enjoyed the entire experience. Doing the sunset tour, allowed us to not be out in the heat of the day and the view was gorgeous. We have only ridden horses a few times, in a precious experience, our knees were hurting during the ride and after, so we were concerned about going horseback riding again. However I learned that maybe the saddle was not adjusted properly and caused that, so we decided to try. I’m so glad we did. They took great diligence with matching riders to the right horse based on size and riding experience and how nervous the guest was about riding. They explained the horses personality and how to direct the horse. They ensured the saddle was adjusted properly and we were comfortable. The wranglers were so nice and accommodating. It was just a super experience. The food was absolutely delicious. My husband had the steak and I had the salmon, both were cooked and seasoned perfectly. They also provide a saddle bag to put your things in on the horse and bottled water. They did recommend close toe shoes and long pants. I wore tights and tennis with a t-shirt, it was about 85 degrees and got down to about 80 during the ride and I was comfortable. Some ladies brought a long sleeve shirt for the later hours. I wish I could give 10 stars!
Definitely a must

Super relaxing and the horses already know the trail so even though we had instructions on how to maneuver the horses I barely had to correct the horse. It's just a casual stroll. And dinner was huge! Tons of food!

Everything about the evening, from the shuttle, the wranglers were so helpful and friendly, the scenery and dinner was great.
A must!
Lisa_S, Jun 2023
Highly recommend! Horses are beautiful, scenery is stunning, staff is fun, and very knowledgeable, food is amazing! We’ll worth every penny spent! Our family went on many excursions while in Vegas, and they all agreed, this was their favorite 😊
Beautiful views and wonderful crew / Wranglers topped off with delicious dinner!! Highly recommend!

Where do I start! This was so much more than I could ever have imagined. The whole experience was very well curated, and enjoyed by my whole family. We all had different levels of experience and the wranglers took that into consideration and paired us with the best horses. My father had Soco (which is the middle name of his late mother!!), my mother had Beauty, my brother had John, and I had Vegas. We fell in LOVE with them! You could tell that the horses were well cared for, and that the wranglers worked harmoniously with one another. The ride itself was at a good pace and provided beautiful scenery for an evening to wind down. Even with 30 something riders, it became my personal time with God and I was filled with so much peace and joy. I'm sad to be back in Miami, but I would most definitely plan a trip back to Vegas JUST for this.
Must do activity
Gaynor_R, May 2023
Amazing experience and very well organised. The Wranglers were fantastic and 10/10 for the chef. Loved the remoteness away from the bright lights.
Room with a view
Brian_L, May 2023
Great trip. Driver was prompt and efficient. We were met by Cat and Orion as our wranglers. Well kept ranch grounds. Horses were very easy to handle. Trail ride was a little more than ninety minutes. Beautiful scenery you can't see from Vegas. Great ranch dinner, my wife chose chicken, fire grilled bone in thighs, mine was a ribeye steak. The whole trip was very well orchestrated. Thanks for a great experience.
Great ride and best dinner.
David_O, May 2023
Great team of wranglers and cook who made it so relaxing and fun. As a non-rider the horses were very gentle and were no problem for me. The duration was also perfect. Long enough to leave me a little sore today but not crippled. The steak dinner was amazing. Best and cheapest huge steak you can get in Vegas in my opinion. Potatoes corn beans and salad to go with. We could not finish it and now have lunch for today. Strongly recommend this adventure.
Therapeutic evening in the great outdoors.
Ronald_S, May 2023
Get away from the hustle of the city in the beatiful and peaceful outdoors using transportation from a bygone erra The staff were all first rate, capable and considerate. The food was also first rate.
Just what I needed
TanyaM_M, May 2023
The crew was very professional yet personable. I felt safe the entire time. And the steak was amazing!
Chill sunset ride in the desert followed by BBQ and smores!

Stephanie_F, May 2023
Lovely scenery to enjoy on a lovely and serene horse back experience. Horses are very well trained along with experienced instructors. Suitable for all - even inexperienced riders. Fantastic food at the end of the Rudd and masses of it. Would thoroughly recommend this experience.
Outstanding Horseback Trip with great views

Beautiful views and great guides. Steak dinner was very good. Horseback rides were terrific. Horses were very easy to ride and guides were excellent helping the guests
A truly wonderful trip for us.
Michaela_L, May 2023
Of our 10 days in the Vegas area this was the highlight. The whole evening was simply wonderful. The wranglers were fantastic and very patient with all the riders as we grasped how to communicate with our allocated horse and the wranglers clearly knew the personalities of all the horses in the heard so were able to manage the trek very efficiently and allocate the character of the horse to the experience of the rider. I haven’t ridden a horse for over 30 years and even back then I wasn’t particularly “good” at it. . My horse was Soco, and what an absolute star he was ! , The trek terrain is uneven and you really are trekking the canyon terrain, not man made concrete paths, but this is no problem to these horses who take it all in their stride. The supper back at the ranch was lovely, and very generous portions so don’t eat too much before the trip. Being back to nature with the trek was the best and even better was that it wasn’t an overly commercialised money making evening. We’ve been on some trips in Vegas where your not allowed to take photos of your own you have to buy theirs etc etc but there was none of this at all, the wranglers used our own mobile phones to take photos and the provision of the saddle bag also meant you could take your phone with you on the ride to take photos when it was safe to do so . I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this experience, it was amazing.
Diana_N, May 2023
Riding through the canyon was so much fun. It's so breath taking watching the sunset. The food at the end was very flavorful. Koa was such a sweetheart. Very friendly. Making cowboy smores was also pretty cool. Overall would recommend to anyone looking for more out of Vegas. You won't regret it.
Escape the Vegas Strip Hustle!
Patricia_D, May 2023
This was a nice relaxing ride through Red Rock Canyon. The guides were very friendly and helpful. After the ride we were treated to a huge steak and several sides. A campfire followed with a new way to make s'mores.
This is a must do while in Vegas
David_S, May 2023
The whole outfit of wranglers were outstanding which made this experience so very exciting and fun. The steak was HUGE and cooked to perfection as was the rest of the meal.
