during a horseback tour

Explore the valley on horseback

I already added it under ?Things to see? - still, Valley Drive doesn?t show you the whole and hidden beauty of the landscape. That?s why I recommend to book a horseback tour. Depending on the length (they are available as 1, 2, 4 hours, whole day and even longer trips), you will have a lifetime experience. Before I went on my first horseback tour there, I wanted to have that ?John Wayne? feeling ? but it?s just more than that. On my first tour, they took me around the East Mitten and Merrick Butte, we came very close to their bottoms, and it was such a tremendous feeling of my life being just nothing compared to the majestic landmarks there.

There are several options for booking horseback rides, I always did it with the guys at Oljato Trading Post Tours , close to Gouldings.
