My family and I are all beginners when it comes to riding, In fact, it was my first time ever and my daughters first... More

My husband and two boys did a sunset ride and Cameron was our guide. He took us through the park and pointed out interesting plants and told us about local animals. He was funny and connected right away with the boys. We highly recommend this outfit! Matt and Becka, the owners could not be nicer and more accommodating. The staff... More

We hadn't been horseback riding in many years. The horses were mature and gentle, the trail was fun, the scenery was awesome! Our guide Shelby was knowledgeable and helpful. This was our first trip to the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and this was an excellent way to experience the mountains first hand. The hour and a half ride was perfect and reasonably... More

All three of us were first time riders. Our guide Shelby took us on the ride and put us at ease. The horses she provided were all good and kept us comfortable and confident. We are from India - (Kerala) visiting here and this was one of the best experiences.

Took mom and dad along for our very first horseback riding. Shelby, our guide was fantastic. She knew so much about the desert habitat - plants and animals and kept us enthralled the whole time. The ride itself was great! A must try for those of you visiting Cave Creek.
