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.

Scenery from a New Perspective

From horseback, you get close to nature and see the countryside in a whole new way. Destination Sports' easy rides take you alongside lakes, under eagle nests, and across rolling rural landscapes. For a little more action, we suggest going with us to the Uinta Mountains for some true horseback riding adventures among mountains, streams, and pine forests. Traveling by horseback also allows for plenty of wildlife viewing opportunities, as you are more in tune with the natural surroundings.
