Horseback Riding in the Park City Area

Horseback riding around Park City and the Uinta Mountains is like taking a trip back in time to experience what this area was like before highways and cars. Relied on by miners, loggers, trappers, and traders, horses have been an important part of the history of Park City, Utah. Nowadays, horses still play an important part in life for ranchers and hunters.

Destination Sports has been providing horseback riding adventures for over 15 years.

Horseback riding is appropriate for all ability levels, although we do have some age and weight restrictions.
Reservations are required for all horseback riding tours. Please contact us with any questions.
Don't forget to bring a camera!
