Morning Horse Riding - Castle Valley Moab

Beginning at the Red Cliffs corral, you'll meet your gentle cowboy-trained quarter horse and your professional wrangler who will take some time to make sure each person feels comfortable with their horse and horseback riding technique. After some lessons in the corral, the trail ride begins. You'll head up Castle Creek Canyon where the soft sounds of the clearwater creek add to the ambiance of towering 2,000-foot cliffs. Cross the shallow creek several times as the views just keep getting better. This beautiful trail is made exclusive to those who choose this trip, so you'll gain a special sense of seclusion that only adds to the astounding sights. After your Moab horseback ride, you'll return to the corral, and bid farewell to your steed and we recommend you take some time to explore and relax around the ranch and head back to downtown Moab, Utah.

Times will vary depending on the time of year. Please call us for exact departure times. Horseback riding trips meet in the lobby of Red Cliffs Lodge located at mile 14 on Highway 128, approximately.

Things to do in Utah

Evan - Casper, WY
Some of our other plans were canceled so we were scrambling to find something fun to do. There were quite a few options available to us through the Adventure Center, even though we were booking last minute. We decided on Horseback riding. Our guide was very informative and fun They helped us feel very comfortable and at ease throughout our adventure! Even though it was our first time. We would recommend The Moab Adventure Center to our friends for future trips and we already have next years trip planned and will be booking another adventure with you!

Outstanding Horseback Ride!

Samantha – Chagrin Falls, OH
I can’t express enough how much I enjoyed this Horseback Riding tour. First of all, the staff was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. They made sure that everyone understood how to ride their horses, and they didn’t rush us through the tour. They even took our pictures on our horses so that we could have souvenirs! Second, the horses were obviously well cared for. They were calm, well-fed, and they didn’t appear unkempt. And third, I thought it was really great that they allowed riders to borrow saddle bags for our water bottles and other things like cameras. I was able to get a drink whenever I wanted, and I could take pictures without worrying about my camera. Oh, and I should say that the tour itself was terrific. I’ve never ridden a horse over steep, sometimes rocky terrain, and going through streams was new to me, too. It was a picturesque, interesting route that was NEVER boring. I highly recommend this tour to anyone. I’d do it again in a heartbeat!
