Come Ride with the Yosemite Cowboys

We are a small, family run business that takes pride
in providing a personalized horse riding experience.
Our stock is ranch raised American Quarter Horses, not mules. Hands-on training in an arena before your departure, no previous horse riding experience necessary. All trails make a continuous loop and cross through streams so you get the exhilaration of riding your horse through water.


Big Creek 1 Hour Trail Ride - $60/person
Offered Daily at 11:00 am, 1:30 pm, 3:00 pm & 4:30 pm mid May through early Sept.

Guided by a real Yosemite Cowboy, you and your American Quarter Horse will travel along a mountain trail, surrounded by towering pines, lush alpine meadows and the bluest sky you have ever seen. You will even experience the exhilaration of riding your horse through mountain stream.
PLEASE NOTE: A person's overall weight AND their height to weight ratio directly effects their ability to safely ride a horse. See Particulars Below

Vista Pass 2 Hour Trail Ride - $100/person
Offered Daily at 8:30 am & 3:30 pm mid May through early Sept.
After winding your way up a river canyon, the trail levels out and traverses Rainer Creek several times. But remember, what goes up must come down, so be sure to have your camera ready to capture the panoramic view as you descend off of Vista Pass. In addition to being longer, the terrain on this ride is more challenging compared to our 1 hour ride.

Mariposa Grove Giant Sequoia Trail Ride - $225/person
Offered Tuesday & Saturday at 11:00 am & return at approx. 5:30 pm late June through early Sept.
An exclusive trail ride into Yosemite's Mariposa Grove. What better way to get a glimpse into Yosemite's past than to visit these 2,000 year old redwood trees the way John Muir and Teddy Roosevelt did, from the back of a good horse. You are welcome to bring lunch or a snack and carry it in saddle bags on the back of your horse. A minimum of 4 riders may be required for this ride.
