Note: Peekaboo Loop is currently closed to private horse use. Private rides are still permitted on other horse trails, but will only be scheduled every half hour between 4:30 PM and 6:00 PM.
Below is information to assist visitors in the use of private stock. (A concessioner is already in place for those visitors who may not have their own horse or mule. Click here for more information.)
The use of privately-owned stock on the trails of Bryce Canyon is permitted. However, regulations and guidelines have been developed to ensure safety and protection for other visitors and park resources.
In order to avoid conflict with other horse rides and for the safety of other visitors and stock, all private horseback riding must be scheduled a specific date and time prior to entering the park. Please write e-mail us at least 72 hours in advance to schedule a reservation.
Liveries are not available in the immediate area. Camping with your stock is available in Red Canyon and on National Forest Service Land (Contact the Dixie National Forest Field Office at 435-676-9300) for further information.
We hope this information will be of value to you in planning and enjoying your horseback trip in Bryce Canyon. For any questions, call our office at 435-834-5322. or e-mail us.
