Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a reservation?
Reservations are strongly encouraged; however, we are happy to accommodate drop-in guests on a first-come-first-served basis depending upon availability
When should I arrive for my ride?
Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your horseback riding departure time.
Can I ride if I have no riding experience?
Yes! NO EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED!! WE WELCOME ALL SKILLS AND LEVELS. From first-timers to advanced riders; all have a great time with us! We will match you up with a horse according to your experience. Our experienced guides will help you learn the basics and ensure your ride is safe and enjoyable.
Is there a minimum age requirement?
Yes, the minimum age requirement is 7 years old. All minors MUST be accompanied by an adult at all times on our property and during trail rides. Children 6 and younger may be led around the staging area free of charge.
Do I have to wear a helmet?
Riders 17 years and under are required to wear a helmet, but helmets are optional for adults. We have helmets of all sizes available free of charge for your convenience.
Is there a weight limit or other requirements for people riding horses?
Yes, our weight max is 275lbs. All participants should be in good general health. We do not recommend those who are pregnant, elderly or otherwise medically restricted to engage in horseback riding at our stable.
All medical/physical restrictions must be declared at the time of reservation. If you have questions, give us a call – we would be happy to assist you!
What should we wear?
Long pants are recommended but not required. We also recommend close toed shoes. Please avoid flip-flops or shoes that can fall off easily in the stirrups.
A sweatshirt or jacket is recommended for morning rides and during early summer and fall months.
What should we bring with us?
You don’t actually NEED anything on the ride. If you would like to bring phone or camera for pictures that is fine. You will NOT be allowed to have a back pack or heavy camera bag. These items usually cause you to ride unbalanced which makes it harder for the horses to do their job. If you have a medical reason for carrying something, please ask before ride.
Do we get to pick our own horses?
You may request a certain horse but it is not guaranteed that you will get that horse. Some horses have weight restrictions, so we pick the best rider/horse combination based on size, rider ability and horse’s capabilities. Please be assured that you will have a wonderful ride no matter which horse you ride.
If it is supposed to rain, do you cancel rides? Do we still have to pay?
We schedule rides every day and “work” with the weather. We rarely have to cancel a whole day of rides, most of the time we can shift our ride times by 30 minutes or so to accommodate the occasional shower. We DO NOT ride in the pouring rain or with thunder and lightning. Light showers, no problem!
If your ride is officially cancelled by Logan Canyon Horseback Riding, you are in no way responsible to pay for it and we will do our best to get you rescheduled or refund your money.
Can we run or gallop the horses?
No. Due to our rocky mountain terrain and for the safety of our guests and horses, Logan Canyon Horseback Riding has a rule requiring walk only rides.
Is it customary to tip the guides?
The guides work very hard and are always at your service. Their work helps to ensure that your ride is safe and fun for the whole family. Please feel free to reward them for their good job, they certainly will appreciate it as most of them are college students.
What is the terrain like?
Logan Canyon is known for its beautiful scenery and mountainous terrain. On our rides you will encounter mountains, some moderate and some steep, cross over a stream, wind through aspens, pines, and meadows filled with grass and wild flowers.
How long has Logan Canyon Horseback Riding been offering horseback riding tours?
Logan Canyon Horseback Riding, formerly Beaver Creek Horseback Riding, has been going strong since 1991! We have seen many generations of the same families move through the ranks of horses as the kids get older, and have had the opportunity to take thousands of horseback rides.
