Red Cliffs Lodge Horseback Riding

Saddle up at Red Cliffs Lodge for a daily ride or horseback adventure

For a truly authentic western experience, nothing beats touring our rugged desert from atop a gentle, cowboy-trained quarter horse. From early settlers to John Wayne himself, people have found there’s no better way to see, smell, and experience the Wild West.
Horseback Riding is seasonal – Please check with the front desk for availability.
