I was so pleasantly surprised by how wonderful my 90-minute ride at KOLI Equestrian Center was. We were a group of 5 and had 2 KOLI guides with us. Both guides were so friendly, knowledgeable, & really cared about our enjoyment of the ride. They both love horses and riding so much that it's infectious. The horses were wonderful. Too... More

I chose to have a private ride with Blass and it was amazing. It was only twenty dollars more than a group ride. On the group rides you are confined to trails and there is no trotting (or cantoring or galloping) allowed. We rode out onto the land of the reservation. Over a stream and into the wild! Spotted a...

Thank you for your comments regarding KOLI Equestrian Center. We are happy that you found value in the Private Ride, even though it costs a little more. It is great to take riders out to where the wild horses still roam freely on Gila River Indian Community. You were lucky to have them come right up to you and hope... More

My grandson had been having a difficult time being able to spend time with friends, etc. due to my daughter and her new husband moving quite often. He is only 11 and was trying so hard to be a "man". I mentioned this to a friend to suggested I go for a "Grandma-Grandson" horseback ride. This was his very first... More

That's the promise and our guide delivered. We rode two nicely mannered horses out into hay fields, across arroyos and finally- the pay off. A large band of horses running free. They were way too far from us- but an irate farmer in a truck shooed them off the gay fields they were munching on and they ran back towards... More

Had a fabulous time in Arizona and the highlight of our vacation was a private horseback riding excursion with KOLI Equestrian. Our guide, Blass, was fantastic!! My 8 year old daughter said she's rather go here than Disney World. Now that is saying something!!
