Venture into the Wild West with gentle cowboy-trained quarter horses. Guided by a professional wrangler, you'll explore the trails made famous by John Wayne himself. New tack and equipment will make your ride as comfortable as can be. So saddle-up and take a trek into the horizon of Moab, the way it was done for many years. The Castle Valley Horseback Ride offers an excellent introduction to horseback riding in Moab. Please call 435-259-7019 to make afternoon reservations.
Begin with expert cowboy instruction in the corral, and then head up Castle Creek toward astounding views of the valley. The Colorado River fades in the distance as you approach red rock cliffs towering some 2,000 feet above. The morning ride allows time to explore and learn about the wild West history of this world-famous landscape.
Experience the sights and sounds of the West while horseback riding amidst 2,000 foot towering red rock cliffs on your way to Castle Rock.
When iconic western film star "The Duke" John Wayne was filming "The Comancheros" in 1961 he called Moab the place "where God put the West." No one has ever disagreed. But did Moab's gigantic western backdrop make the Westerns, or did the Westerns make Moab iconically Western? Good question to ponder as you saddle up, walk out of the corral, and ride off into the sunset amongst the very same scenery - perhaps on the very same trails - that John Wayne himself rode on his way to a rescue. So quit wastin' daylight, paint 'yer wagon, and saddle up for scenery that's as purty as a little red heifer in a flower bed.
