The Cedar Trail Ride:

1 & 1/2 Hours

     Brief horseback riding instruction followed by an hour and a half long horse ride at whatever speeds and trails best match your experience level. The trail goes over streams, hills, and forests at the base of the mountains.

 

In winter be sure to wear a good hat, mittens, a pair of thin socks and a pair of heavy wool socks, as well as warm coats and other winter clothing. It is much more comfortable to wear too much warm gear than to not bring enough.

The Half Day Ride:

3 Hours

There will be a brief introduction to horsemanship before taking the horses out on a 2and a half to 3 hour trail ride through the Utah valleys, hills, and junipers, putting your skills to use. There are a lot of natural obstacles out there as well as different hills and overlook points. The specific trails we decide to ride will be determined by your comfort level as we ride along. We may take to the high Utah hills with steep trails to slide the horses down, or we may take easier routes for a more relaxing horseback experience.

 

In winter be sure to wear a good hat, mittens, a pair of thin socks and a pair of heavy wool socks, as well as warm coats and other winter clothing. It is much more comfortable to wear too much warm gear than to not bring enough.

45 Second Clip from The Mountain Ride in December 2019

 

The Mountain Ride:

All Day Ride

 The Mountain Ride is a horseback riding adventure that takes you high into the Utah mountains between Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks. We begin at 6,000 feet elevation here at Rising K Ranch, and go up to a 9 ,000 to 10,000 foot elevation depending upon which trail we take. Be sure to bring plenty of water and pack a lunch for your saddlebags or, if you bring enough people with you, we will bring along a pack horse, as we will be stopping to rest and eat in a meadow about 3,000 feet above the ranch.

 

The Mountain Ride usually will take about six hours, but the price remains the same regardless of whether it takes five hours or twelve hours. The point of the Mountain Ride is to enjoy a horseback riding adventure that you will remember for the rest of your life and is not about watching the clock.

 
 
View Along the Mountain Ride in Winter

In winter, the Mountain Ride takes a different route that goes up as high as we can depending on how deep the snow is. If riding in winter be sure to wear a warm hat that covers your ears, a pair of mittens (mittens are much better than gloves), a thin pair of socks covered with a heavy pair of wool socks, as well as warm coats and shirts and pants. It is much better to wear too much winter gear than it is to not bring enough.
