My family and I did the 11 AM horseback ride at Red Pine Adventures. We had never been to Park City before and it was amazing, so beautiful. We arrived at Red Pine, which was slightly difficult to find, but that’s because we were looking on the left side of the road, it is on the right. You can’t miss the big stone sign. We parked and headed into the small building to sign paperwork and get fitted for riding helmets (if you wanted one or you were under 18). Tidbit of info, wear jeans when you ride. Leggings, shorts, or thin pants can lead to chafing and not thick enough to protect your legs from trees and branches. The guides and owner will pick out horses for each rider based on rider size and experience. Commander was my horse. A huge beautiful draft horse who was one of the more experienced horses at Red Pine. There are stairs to help you get on the horse, if the horse is too tall or you don’t know how to get on. They fit the stirrups to your legs and comfort. And provide you with a short demonstration on how to ride your horse (rein usage, etc). Our guides were Ariel and Jillian. They were both great. Very experienced and knew their way around the Red Pine property. The entire ride was on the large piece of property owned by Red Pine. Both guides explained how to ride when going up and down hills and how that helped the horse. They pointed out the Aspen Groves and how they are all one living organism. And they pointed out the different wildlife we saw on the ride. Both guides were very personable, wanting to get to know their riders and sharing information about themselves. The guides also took the time to stop multiple times to help my mom with her stirrups because she had issues after her recent surgery on her ankle. All together the experience was great. We got to see the beauty of Park City and ride some beautiful horses! I highly suggest this for anyone wanting to see and experience Park City in the Summer.
Three of us went on a 1.5 hour trail ride today. We are experienced riders but there were inexperienced riders with us and they had no problems. The guides were helpful and friendly. The horses were all well behaved, the tack in good condition (I had a very comfortable saddle) and the horses well cared for. The trail riding was peaceful and beautiful. A great way to appreciate the beautiful mountains- definitely recommend.
Foster and Oz were the best horses and everyone took great care of us! Trail leaders were super and we saw 3 deer and other wildlife!
What an amazing afternoon we had horseback riding. We highly recommend Red Pine Adventures. We have a 10 year old daughter and she was very nervous about riding and one of our guides Jen was absolutely excellent with JiJi, made her feel so comfortable. The ride was unbelievable, we rode through a forest and streams and we literally rode up a mountain and when we reached the top the views were absolutely breathtaking. Ben another guide rode behind me and he was so sweet and a great conversationalist. Another guide Jennifer took great pictures of our family. It was a wonderful adventure and incredible memories we will never forget.
My 10 year old daughter and I just visited and it was fantastic. Roger, Ben and Brock were exceptional guides and the ride was beautiful!! We highly recommend their group and will return again.
