This is an AWESOME experience!
Anyone who loves horses will really enjoy Lost Canyon in Wisconsin Dells area
There are usually several teams of horses waiting to give rides through a cool wooded canyon. It doesn't seem to matter how hot it is everywhere else, this canyon stays nice and cool. The horses trod through shallow pools alongside a creek on a nice sandy path, and almost seem to be having fun too!
It's fun to meet up with the other teams of horses and wagon loads of tourists. Everyone seems to have a smile on their faces and the guides usually stop for a moment to tease each other. Be sure to ask lots of questions while on the ride. I always do; and I learn a lot about the place, horses and even the guides.
There are many places along the trail where you wonder if the horses can even fit through the narrow canyon walls, they do! This narrow confined area actually makes for a very safe horse drawn wagon ride. I have given wagon rides commercially in the past and I know that there is a risk when you take a large group of people for a ride with horses. Most horse drawn rides are either in town or out in wide open spaces where plenty can go wrong. I am jealous of this spot because distractions are very limited as well as places for scared horses to go! I could see that whoever set things up here, took many precautions to keep everything safe.
It is really fun to watch the other teams pulling through the canyon as you meet them along the way! I love watching horses in harness, so this place is easily one of my favorite tourist attraction of all time!
