Some try to spare money by taking 'their' car (mostly a rental, which seems to make it even more easy to choose this option) into the dusty roads of the Monument Valley Park. The roads are however bumpy and the dust penetrates everything. However, we saw what happens when seldomly the rain strikes and turns the land in one big red muddy swamp. Believe me, the penalty that the rentalcompany or the bill that your garage gives you, is a lot higher then the price of a jeepsafari.

If you have a fear of horses, don't ride. The outfitters ask you what kind of experience you have riding and try to gear your ride to your ability. This is obviously much easier to do if you are not in a group. If you ride in a group, they must try to keep the group together. If you're doing an overnight trip there's quite a distance to cover, so you will at least be going at a trott, more times than not. I find galloping much more comfortable as you aren't bouncing up and down as with trotting. Ouch! The Navajo wranglers will also explain to you how to make the horse turn, stop, etc. Pay attention! IF YOU GALLOP, DON'T BUNCH UP WITH OTHER HORSES AS THEY MAY KICK! Bunching up at a gallop also gives you a better chance of getting knocked off.

If you do venture out anywhere around here, please make sure that you bring some water. You can never tell when you might need it.
