About Us

Hi there.

I'm Don Vinson, ride manager and booking agent for Monument Valley Trail Rides. I've been a cowboy for 50 years and have been organizing trail rides for the last 20. We head up friendly groups of folks who soon feel like family. We have a lot of fun on our rides and share some great times. I look forward to meeting you and having you be part of our experience.

Monument Valley is one of the most beautiful and historic places in the world. I love it! We take you out in the valley where there is no cell phone reception and no electricity. The air is clear and the sky at night is magnificent. The nearest services are in Goulding, a 1920's trading post, located eight miles away.

Rides normally go from 9:00am to around 2:30pm. There will be one 20 mile ride. During the week there will be one short ride that gives people a chance to relax and look at hogans and other Navajo artifacts.

Navajos from the region participate in our program. Some go with us as guides. We also visit their village, where we will be able to tour a hogan (made out of mud and juniper) and see how sheep are raised for the wool to make the gorgeous rugs for which Navajos are famous. You will even get to see a demonstration of rug weaving and can purchase rugs and jewelry. We will also be treated to a traditional Navajo taco dinner once during the week.

Night's we have pot luck dinners. Everyone brings a dish. After dinner we gather round the campfire where our Navajo companions play drums and sing native songs. You won't feel left out though . . . there is singing by all.

This may be a vacation of a lifetime for many people and we want you to always feel you are a part of the ride, not just a participant. People love the down-home atmosphere of our rides. They often say to me as they are leaving, "I'm going home and I'm telling all my friends."
