Great Views, Amazing staff, Fun & Safe for kids
Jul 2021 • Family
My son and I decided to go horseback riding for the first time and let me tell you we LOVED it. The entire staff was very kind and friendly. Andrew, our wrangler was very informative, kind and made this such a memorable experience. He was the perfect person for us, making us feel extremely comfortable! Thank you Andrew ☺️ We can’t wait to visit again!

Lindsay and Andrew were the best trail guides! They are informative and funny and very caring! The ride is just lovely and we all enjoyed it! The stables are well kept and price was fair for sure! We will go again with these 2 fine folks as our leaders!

Great experience
May 2021 • Family
We were hoping to find a longer ride, but all the same we really enjoyed our hour long ride with Ponderosa Stables. The wranglers were personable, informative, and took great care of everyone on the ride. They even made sure to trot our 9 year old's horse so he would have a more memorable time. He loved it!

The horses were well trained and the scenery was beautiful. I would love to do one of the dinner rides if we're ever back in the area.

Awesome Experience
May 2021
Awesome experience. My wife and I took our granddaughter because she loves to ride horses. We had not ridden in many years so we were somewhat apprehensive. All the staff were excellent and took good care of us. Horses were well behaved . The scenery was awesome. both the desert mountains and the city views were great. We saw a coyote and a rabbit along the way as well as lots of cactus. Had a wonderful Steak dinner with a beautiful sunset. Then the ride back with the city all lit up was spectacular. Would definitely recommend this ride. It exceeded expectations!

Best Date Night EVER!!
Apr 2021 • Couples
This was my family's 4th or 5th guided trail ride in the Phoenix area, where we live, but the first one my husband and I took without the kids. We did the sunset ride out to T-Bone Steak House and back and it was absolutely wonderful. The next morning I texted basically everyone I know in PHX to tell them they absolutely needed to do this with their spouse or significant other because I swear this may have been the best date my husband and I have ever been on in 25 years of marriage! Well, I guess that time he proposed to me during the seventh-inning stretch of a World Series game at Yankee Stadium was better, but this ride was a close second.

Our guides were two charming young wranglers, too young for us to buy them a drink at T-Bone but wise enough to be terrific trip leaders. I think their names were Bailey and Xander. (Our guides on previous trips have also been professional, helpful, informative and personable.) The scenery was SO BEAUTIFUL. Dinner at T-Bone was fantastic -- our steaks were superb and the ambience was perfect -- rustic, no blaring music, lovely view of the city lights below us. We rode back to Ponderosa Stables in the moonlight.

This was such a nice couples experience but we both did wish our kids could have enjoyed it too. When we take them we will pick a night with a full moon.

A-plus, two thumbs up, five stars. DO IT.

Best Horse ride ever
May 2021 • Couples
Our wrangler was a young man, he was absolutely great! Very informative about the area, the ranch nature and SO knowledgeable about the horses, the ride was great , the horses are beautiful and very calm. My husband is tall so they promptly brought out “Big Bertha “ great customer service!!! Definitely will be riding again when we’re back in Phoenix

Best inexpensive adventure I have ever had.
May 2021
I went on the evening ride to the steakhouse. What an adventure. You won't beat the price either. At least an hour ride up to the steakhouse, eat and then back again. Best $55 dollars I have ever spent. The cost was right, the staff were fabulous and great fun. I would recommend the steakhouse ride to everyone. Treat yourself and your loved ones.

Great, relaxing experience
Apr 2021
Ponderosa Stables wasn't our first choice, but the first choice never returned our call. The only reason Ponderosa wasn't our first choice was that at this time they were only offering one hour rides, My wife is an experienced rider and we were hoping for a longer ride.

At any rate, we thoroughly enjoyed our ride through the scenic Arizona desert. Bailey was a great wrangler, engaging with all the riders, pointing out the scenery and points of interest and demonstrating her amazing horsemanship skills.

We will definitely be back for the dinner ride next time we are in Phoenix.
