Taking a trip to Park City is always a treat for travelers with an unwavering passion for beautiful landscapes, outdoor adventure and city-center entertainment too. It’s also a haven of opportunity for horse lovers in Park City who are looking to connect with these incredible creatures along the way. If you happen to have three days to spare in the name of Park City fun, the following itinerary will take you to all of the best stops where you can make the most of horse adventure you won’t soon forget.
After enjoying breakfast in your luxurious vacation rental booked through Summit Luxury Vacations, travelers on a horse lover’s journey to Park City will begin the first day of their stay with an outing organized through Red Pine Adventures. Located near Canyons Village, this company is proud to provide guests with options to book guided horseback riding tours on their private land complete with stunning mountain views. As you trot through meadows and soak up mountain peak vistas, you’ll find the time simply flies by.
Next up is an outing with the team over at Destination Sports and Adventure after a lunch to refuel for afternoon fun. The horseback riding adventures through this company can be customized according to rider preference and style. Most rides are booked from anywhere from one to four hours total and can be paired with other company adventures like fly fishing tours as well. Horse trails run through beautifully forested terrain and in the fall, aspen leaves provide a changing color canopy to enjoy during a trail ride too.
Dine at Riverhorse on Main
This evening you’ll be setting your savory sights on Main Street with a meal enjoyed at Riverhorse on Main. Here, you can make the most of an elegant night of dining out in a space known for its menu featuring delectable American favorite dishes, friendly service and live music too.
The second day of your Park City stay with a focus on horse-themed activities begins with time at North Forty Escapes in nearby Oakley. These stables come with a wonderfully authentic western feel and guests are invited to take to the trails on a friendly and extra trail-savvy quarter horse. Far from the energy of downtown Park City, you’ll spend time soaking up the scenery at your own, preferred pace alongside a knowledgeable trail guide.
After lunch, it’s time to enjoy an afternoon making unforgettable memories with the team over at Adventures at Stillman Ranch. This private ranch offers up stunning views of the Wasatch Mountains and there are acres upon acres of terrain to explore on horseback. Before you head out, the pros here are happy to provide instruction for riders of all skill levels and they offer guided tours as well. For an added fee, you can choose to pair your afternoon ride with a follow-up barbecue dinner right on-site.
Take time to Reflect on Horse Conservation
Next, make your way to the Wild Heart Sanctuary in Park City. This is an incredible stop for animal lovers to see the good work others who are passionate about horses are doing. This nonprofit organization offers horses who are currently housed at kill pens, auctions, or on their way to slaughter a safe haven and forever home to live out their lives peacefully. The sanctuary is home to horses of all kinds including nine wild mustangs. Drop by to learn more and make a donation that will make a difference for horse conservation and care in Park City.
Dine at the High West Saloon
This evening, dine in western style at the High West Saloon on Park Avenue. This themed and fun stop offers up delicious dishes and fun, costumed service too! Not to mention the great drink menu to match.
The third day of your horse lover’s journey to Park City begins at Rocky Mountain Outfitters. Situated just outside Park City, Rocky Mountain Outfitters is a one-stop resource for great horseback rides and hayrides alike. Private rides are available at their stables near Soldier Hollow and guided tours are readily available upon request as well.
Next up is an afternoon of riding fun at Wind in Your Hair Riding. Here, horses are a way of life, and the on-site team is dedicated to helping guests make the most of every moment. There are riding classes for equestrians of all skill levels and trails for guided rides when you’re ready to canter or gallop your way through the open terrain. Sightseeing tours for advanced riders are sure to thrill.
Add a Snowed Inn Experience to the Lineup
If your Park City travel plans bring you this way in the winter, be sure to end your three-day stay on a high note by booking a horse-drawn sleigh ride and follow up dinner with the team at Snowed Inn Sleigh Co. The evening will take a magical turn as you slide over the snow in a horse-drawn sleigh, and you can warm up with ease afterwards while enjoying a delicious meal and live music.
