Ride real cowboy trails on a supremely well-trained horse and watch the multi-hued rocks glowing in the morning sun. Enjoy the peace of the desert and look out for wildlife like eagles, kit foxes or jack rabbits. You’ll find it hard to believe that you are only 30 minutes or so from Las Vegas.
Make sure you have your camera with you as the views are breath-taking.
Experienced riders and novices alike will love this desert horse-back adventure.
Get in touch with your inner cowboy on this Horse Riding at Red Rock Canyon tour.
At the start of the day you will be picked up from one of the following pickup points.
You will reach the ranch, located in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, at about 8:00am (in summer, 9:00am in winter) and will be introduced to your horse! Set off with your cowboy guide up a narrow canyon with limestone cliffs looming a hundred feet above you.
Enjoy the golden glow of morning and the stunning desert landscapes as your sure-footed horse picks its way along historic cowboy trails.
You will see ancient caves, amazing geological formations and the majestic Wilson Cliffs rising to 7,000 feet and streaked with rich red sandstone. Watch the sky for birds such as eagles or red-tailed hawks. And keep an eye out for burros among the rocks, chuckwalla lizards, or jack rabbits with their huge ears.
The trail ride lasts for 2 hours. Afterwards you will be dropped back in Las Vegas at the point from which you were picked up.
