Horseback Riding, Antelope Island, Utah, Great Salt Lake, State Park

Horseback Riding on Antelope Island

Whether you participate in a cattle drive, climb soaring mountain trails, or twist through desert canyons, there are many regions of Utah to explore by horseback. Llama and camel too!

Horseback Riding

With networks of horseback riding trails to destinations throughout all of Utah's six National Forests, four out of five of our National Parks, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, and hundreds of thousands of acres of public lands, the true splendor and variety of riding opportunities makes an excellent destination for the equine enthusiast.

In the hottest months of the summer, many riders choose to experience the majesty of Utah's alpine riding experience. For instance, riding the High Uinta Wilderness allows for exploring a remote wilderness area, consisting of pristine alpine basins of pine forests and aspen groves, countless scenic alpine lakes, and various wildlife surrounded by the state's highest summits.

As the temperatures begin to cool down, Utah's canyon country, most of which is in the southern part of the state, becomes the preferred setting for many riders. An seemingly endless network of serpentine canyons full of many hues of reds, oranges, yellows and lavenders, rock spires, mesas, plateaus, arches, and natural bridges, onjures feelings of the Old West.

Here, riders may begin to sense they're sharing the trails with Butch Cassidy and his Wild Bunch en route to hidden passages and hideouts, following a heist. Some riders may even choose to book a themed trip on a vintage train bound to be overtaken by outlaws and to be taken hostage under the shadows of the awesome, the breathtaking Mt. Timpanogos, the iconic summit of the Wasatch Mountain Range. Other riders may choose to hire a guide and ride the desert wilderness for a multi-day trip in and around Capitol Reef National Park and the nights either by ATV supplied camps or trotting from inn to inn. The horseback riding trails, guides and outfitters, including detailed information could fill the pages of a sizeable book.
