The buzz of summer is in full effect. The scenic mountains of Heber Valley create the perfect setting for a summer horseback ride.  Make the most of the summer season and saddle up with Rocky Mountain Outfitters for a horseback riding experience you won’t forget. With multiple riding destinations, you can find the perfect backdrop for your summer ride.

Rocky Mountain Outfitters

Since 1997, Rocky Mountain Outfitters has been serving the Park City and Heber Valley area with premier outdoor experiences from horseback riding to fly fishing year-round. Their stables at Sundance Mountain Resort and Solider Hollow give you the opportunity to select the backdrop that most suits your wants and needs.

Sundance Stables Trails

Sundance Resort transforms from a skier’s paradise in the winter into a summer playground after the snow melts. The magical aspen forests and meadows found at Sundance attract many visitors over the summer season and is one of the best destinations for horseback riding in the state.

Beginners will be most attracted to the 1-hour Elk Meadows Trail Ride that gently guides you through the alpine meadows and aspen groves in the area. This trail is most popular with young and first-time riders.

If you’re looking for a more thrilling and scenic experience, the Stewart Falls Trail Ride is a must. The spectacular views of the Mount Timpanogos guide you to cascading waters of Stewart Falls. This ride is by far the most popular and has been voted the #1 ride by guests from all over the world. This enchanting ride, complete with a waterfall, is 2 hours long.

Both of these trails offer a private ride or a sunset ride where you can observe all the native wildlife like owls, elk, deer and the occasional moose. For the ultimate thrill-seeking experience, you can book the Horseback and Zipline Package. After riding and lunch at the deli, head up the mountain for an adrenaline rush you will never forget on the Sundance Zipline.

If you want a more tranquil experience, you can incorporate a yoga session into your horseback riding. Get in tune with the natural surroundings post horseback ride with a yoga session in Elk Meadows.

Soldier Hollow Stables

Experience the rich history of the venue of the 2002 Winter Olympics. Complete with lake views, gorgeous mountain scenery and meadows. The variety of trail rides at Soldier Hollow lets you find the tailored experience that suits your group’s needs and experience levels.

The Mountain Meadows ride allows you to experience all the gorgeous meadows in the area via horseback. The heavy winter and summer rains we have received have resulted in one of the best summers to visit. If a water feature is in your plans, the Cascade Springs Ride guides you through the gorgeous natural spring created by the snow melt from Mount Timpanogos.

The Soldier Hollow Stable also offers a horseback ride followed by a tranquil yoga session in the mountains.

This summer, Homestead Resort is offering a Horseback and Stay Package that includes a scenic horseback ride on the south slope of the historic Soldier Hollow Valley and an overnight stay.

If you are looking for a break from the mundane, take a break to drop in and reconnect with family and friends with the Horseback and Stay Package at Homestead Resort.
