We scheduled a 1.5 hr sunset ride. Loved every moment. Everyone was welcoming. Before the ride we had time to feed some of the horses a few cookies. Horses were obviously well cared for. Guide (Zach) was friendly and made sure we had an enjoyable ride. Beautiful area. Best way to end a family vacation.

Felt very relaxed & safe on this ride. We went on the 1.5 hour afternoon ride & enjoyed the beautiful desert scenery. Our guide was friendly & engaging and paid attention to both riders & horses safety. Horses were healthy, happy, & well taken care of.

We went on a one hour ride. We went with our two adult children who have mild disabilities. Even though they’ve written many times, our daughter started to get upset a few minutes into the ride. Our guide, Logan, was great! He calmly took charge, talk to her, and took the lead rope for the rest of the ride. This is exactly what she needed!

The ride was the perfect length for us “city folk.” The ride had small hills which was challenging enough for those of us who ride an office chair more than we ride a four-legged creature.

The horses were well behaved and well taken care of!

We took the 2 hr ride and absolutely loved it. We own horses and ride regularly, but found this plenty of saddle time to experience the Sonoran Desert's beauty. Once at the top of the trail, it felt like you could see forever, and the quiet was something not often experienced these days. The horses were well trained and well behaved. The terrain is rough and there were a few steep drop-offs, so wouldn't recommend this particular ride to beginners. The company does, however, offer shorter easier rides that still offer the same desert experience. Guides are professional, offering enough instruction without being overbearing. Horses are well cared for. Highly recommend this group!

We had a great experience from start to finish. It was very well organized, staff was extremely friendly and it was so fun for our 10 year old as well as my husband and I who had very little riding experience.

Called ahead and booked a 1-hour sunset ride for our anniversary. Location was easy to find. Staff was friendly and efficient. Horses were well trained and seemed to be treated well. Beautiful desert landscape and ride was inside a state park. We had cloudy weather the day we went, so no sunset views for us. But still beautiful desert landscape and a fun excursion. My husband loved it and we’ll be back! Thank you, Colton, for being our guide. Thank you, Tyler, for checking us in and explaining the horse etiquette. Loved my horse (Johnny).

Took my 3 children on the 1 hour Loop Ride. Logan was very knowledgeable about the Cave Creek Park area and made the whole experience very enjoyable.

My two youngest are only 9 and 10 and this was their first time on a horse. Logan gave a short, but informative class prior to our ride. The horses were calm and were very easy for them to handle.

I would definitely recommend them for young and inexperienced riders. It was great!
