Moab Horseback Riding
Yes, you too can ride your horse here just like John Wayne did. Desert horseback riding in Moab is better than the silver screen because of nature. Hollywood is good at tinsel town; Moab is good at equestrian adventure.
You can purchase a detailed map of horseback riding trails at the Moab Information Center located at 25 E Center Stree, Moab, UT 84532.
