Horseback Riding

Riding the Range

Most of our trail rides in Antimony, Utah take you through the meadows, foothills and mountains surrounding the Rockin’ R dude ranch. We have trail rides for beginners, intermediate and more advanced riders. We’ll teach you basic lessons on how to handle your horse; and you can ride around the grounds or in the arena until you feel confident enough to go on one of our guided trail rides.

We can even teach you how to saddle your horse before riding and how to brush it after you’re done.

Riding Rules

Please note that all riders will be required to wear close-toed shoes (no sandals) and long pants. Any riders under the age of 18 will need to wear one of our riding helmets. Helmets are available upon request for adults. Riders must be at least eight years old in order to go on a trail ride. Younger children will have opportunities to ride in the arena while being helped by one of our wranglers. The weight limit for horseback riders is 230 lbs.

Our 4 boys put down their game systems and happily discovered the wonders of the great outdoors, a huge accomplishment! There are too many standout staff members to name them individually. Every activity went above and beyond our expectation. Thank you for creating some of our most favorite family memories!”
