I had never ridden a horse before, so I was a little apprehensive. However, they took the time to get to know everyone's experience, or lack of experience in my case, riding. They gave me a nice, gentle horse, Teddy, who took good care of me for an hour! Teddy and I were a little slow, but our guide, made... More

Shelby was our guide and she was absolutely amazing! Felt comfortable talking to her and could relate to her a lot. The views were incredible with the sunset and got some excellent photos. Would recommend 100% to anyone visiting.

Awesome scenery, stunning vistas, high trails, sure footed and calm horses. Best ride in a long time, first high country ride but horses were calm, sure footed and brought us back without incident. Shared the trail with joggers and hikers. Good times, no better way to see the desert than on the back of a horse. Going to visit them... More

My 8 year old daughter really enjoyed getting dressed up for her first horseback ride. Ann was our guide and did a great job making everyone feel comfortable, teaching us about the... More

Cher was very knowledgable of the area and was very accommodating. We took the 1 hr ride at 6pm which allowed us plenty of time. It was a bit warm however, there was a bit of a breeze which allowed us to enjoy the scenery. We stopped to take a few photos along the way. Cher took her time and... More

Our guide Ruben was friendly and professional, and shared many interesting insights about the surrounding plants and animals. We encountered prairie dogs, jackrabbits, thorny lizards and even a coyote during our 2-hour evening ride, and enjoyed the lovely scenery. One note to those who have not ridden horseback in a while (or ever): You might find the 1-hour ride to... More

We booked an hours trail in May during our honeymoon stay in Scottsdale, Rubén was our guide and was brilliant really knowledgable and fun, it is so special to ride in the sunshine away from the general hustle and bustle... A great experience - highly recommended will definitely go again next time we are in Scottsdale....thanks Rubén.
