Eager to shed your pack and/or let someone else do the walking while you focus on enjoying the Yosemite backcountry? 

Custom, multi-day saddle and pack trips are also available through our stables.

After first being evaluated, a stable employee will offer someone with special needs an opportunity to sit on a horse while being walked around the corral so they can enjoy the experience without compromising safety.

Why Mules?

In Yosemite, mule rides reign supreme.  Not only are these trail-wise and surefooted animals perfect for exploring the scenic and rugged terrain in Yosemite National Park, but their calm and even temperaments make them the ideal partner for your trail adventures.  If you prefer horses, we have more of them stabled in Wawona where the terrain is easier and gentler.  Please note: Riders are paired with animals based on availability and appropriateness.  You will not have a choice of which animal you will ride.
