Horseback Riding in Las Vegas does not get any beter than this
Your tour starts with pickup at the Las Vegas Strip (click here for hotel pickup list), where you will be met by your Professional Wrangler.
Approximately 45 minutes later you will arrive in Eldorado Canyon and feel like you have travelled back in time. The buildings and atmosphere are authentic, Old West style.
Your Wrangler will meet you, give you the Safety Orientation, and get you up on your horse in no time at all.
Thee horses will be travelling on trails that were used by the miners of the early 1800's, using mule driven ore carts. From the top of the mountain, you have a view of the mighty Colorado River, where the steamboats from that era delivered goods and supplies to the residents of Eldorado Canyon.
The tour will stop for water breaks, and photo opportunities, along the way. The meal stop at our covered Pavillon is a great spot for pictures, it is the actual spot where the miners lived back in the early 1800's. We have created two recreations of the rock cabins many of them lived in. Keep an eye out for Desert Bighorn Sheep, this is a favorite spot for them!
This Las Vegas Horseback Tour includes a walking tour of the Techatticup Gold Mine, once the largest producing Gold Mine in Southern Nevada. You will venture deep inside this mine (some SWEAR it's haunted!) and marvel at the conditions the miners endured.
You will also see footings from the original buildings of the 1800's, and plenty of memorabilia from those almost lawless days.
This is Old West History come to life.
