Why we included this experience:

You can experience the life of an early pioneer with this exhilarating horseback tour.

Experience description

It was around the mid-nineteenth century that explorers first discovered the Yosemite Valley, previously only known to the Native Americans that inhabited it. The best way to get around, of course, was by horse, which is exactly what you’ll be doing with this authentic journey through towering pine trees, lush alpine meadows, and across flowing streams. Guided by genuine Yosemite cowboys who’ll explain the history and environment of the area, you’ll gain an understanding of the hardships and joys faced by these early pioneers.

They say that in this part of the world the skies go on forever, and it’s certainly true. At other times that sky will be almost invisible, as you walk gently through forests of redwood trees dating back 2000 years. The legendary naturalist and preservation campaigner John Muir travelled these parts on horseback, and you’ll be following in his footprints, or rather, hoof-prints. Ride’em, cowboy.
