Travel Tips, What's New — By julietrevelyan on May 31, 2011 at 9:38 pm

Have horse, will travel? Not so fast, said Utah’s state veterinarian. Due a recent outbreak of Equine Herpes Virus Type 1 (EHV-1), which is potentially deadly, privately-owned horses are banned from Bryce Canyon National Park until June 4.

In the meantime, catch a ride with Canyon Trail Rides, the official horseback riding operation in Bryce Canyon. They offer 2-hour and 1/2-day horseback rides on Bryce Canyon trails every day, including the lovely Peekaboo Loop.
