Horseback Riding

HomeHorseback Riding

Offered daily May through October, but trail ride season can very depending on weather conditions.  Please arrive 30 min before your ride’s scheduled departure time.

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.

One and two hour horseback trail rides depart daily or join us for our exclusive day ride to 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.

Yosemite Trails is a small, family run business that takes pride in providing a personalized horse riding experience. No previous horse riding experience necessary. All trail rides start with a hands-on riding lesson in an arena before you depart. Our riding stock is ranch raised American Quarter Horses, not mules and trails cross through streams so you get the exhilaration of riding your horse through water.
