Hi Riders — Welcome!

2018 Schedule

I would like to thank all of you who have supported me in the past. This year I want to do something more than just say “thank you.” If we get over 25 riders, we'll pay back $300 for every 15 riders.

I make a commitment to give you a great ride. When you pay your ride fees, you make a commitment to be on the ride. If you do have a problem, you may make arrangements to change to another ride this season or switch to a ride next year.

Prices

Spring and Fall Rides are $375 per rider, and $150 per non-rider. This is an update from last year - to help cover our increased permit and insurance fees. You can reserve it early with a $50 non-refundable deposit per rider. The full amount is due 30 days before the ride.

Private rides start at $7,500, with a non-refundable $500 deposit. This is for a group of up to 20 riders. Additional riders are $375 per rider over 20. The full amount is due 30 days before the ride.

A limited number of horse pens are available for $30 each (non refundable).

Refund Policy

I’m a retired person who lives on a limited income. I love to ride, and meet new riders. If there is some hardship that makes it impossible for you to honor a commitment to one of the rides, consideration may be given if you need a ride credit for up to 12 months towards another ride, if you politely ask. (Cash refunds are not available.)

If you pay for a pen ($30) and you cancel, you will loose that too. I forward this to the Navaho as I recieve it, to reserve your pen as a courtesy and I can't get this back.

Spring Rides

On this ride there are normally 40 pens available. These pens go on a first come basis.

ALL rides start on Sunday 1:00pm Utah Time at the meeting place, end on Friday, and you leave Saturday. NOTE: You do need to be caravanned into the Monument Valley trail ride... that is aboug 50 minute caravan trip - to get to the meeting place.
