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, 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.
