Well I can say that this was our worst experience in three weeks of traveling California. The horses walked around a dry river bed 20 minutes up and 20 minutes back. Not worth the time or money. My 8 year old loved it though.More

We took the two hour canyon ride. The horses were great making their way up and down through the canyons and crossing creaks. Andreas Canyon and Murray Canyon are both beautiful in March. I rode Raven, an excellent horse. I definitely recommend the canyon ride.

This was worth every penny. One of the best things to do in PS. We loved having Hannah and Blue lead us on the 2 hour Canyon Ride. Magic.
