Start your Wild West horseback riding tour with morning pickup from Las Vegas Strip hotels and relax during the 30-minute drive to Bonnie Springs Ranch in the desert. On arrival at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, you’ll sit down for a hearty western-style cowboy — or cowgirl — breakfast. Feast on pancakes, hash browns, eggs and toast accompanied by your choice of bacon, sausage or ham and wash it all down with orange juice and coffee.
While professional wranglers prepare the horses for the trail ride, take in the serenity of the majestic surroundings, where red rock mountains and desert meet. You’ll be paired with a tame horse that is well-suited to your skill level for the approximate 1-hour ride.
Follow the same horse trails once used by some of the most infamous outlaws of the American West. Keep your camera on hand to capture photos of grazing cattle and, if you have a keen eye, spot bighorn sheep, road runners and jack rabbits scuttling through the brush.
After your horseback ride, head over to the ranch’s on-site cowboy town and petting zoo. You’ll return to your hotel on the Strip with plenty of time left in the day to experience more of Vegas.
Please Note: This is a single-file trail ride. Due to safety regulations, customers are not permitted to run or gallop the horses on the trail.
