My sister was in town so we decided to see the desert by horseback. The guide was knowledgeable & very informative. He was pt with the less experienced riders and didn't treat those of us who do ride as now-it-alls. He even stopped at sunset to take our pictures!

We booked theTrail Boss Adventure package in mid December and were not disappointed! We rode out at 9 am, it was a little chilly at first but warmed up as the sun rose higher. We walked through the desert on very well mannered horses, enjoying the sights of cacti and other desert life with the ever present mountains as a... More

My wife and I took our 3 teenage kids here and did the 2 hour trail ride with lunch and cowboy game package. Our wrangler, Dale, was great and everyone at this place was extremely friendly. I would definitely do this again if we ever come back. We learned about the different types of vegetation and saw a coyote. When... More

This was the best experience I've had at a ranch. I grew up horseback riding and have seen lots of farms in my day, this place was well kept, clean, and the horses were very healthy. The staff was extremely friendly and kind. Our uber driver got lost on our attempt to return to our hotel and the owner was... More

We booked the 2 hour afternoon trail ride thru the desert. The Arizona scenery was breathtaking. Our guide, Dale was extremely friendly and told us a lot of personal riding stories he has had during his life in Arizona. There were four of us on the ride, our two horses were easy to handle but did have personality. The other... More

Matt and Becca, the managers, are great! They have put together the kindest, most knowledgeable guides I have found. If you have the time, splurge and do the 2.5 hour Quartz Trail Ride. Tons of amazing geologic history.

Good morning ride through the desert, while being educated by our guide. Not much of a horse rider myself, but felt very comfortable on the horse that was provided.

We recently had a company retreat in Carefree and were looking for some fun activities and team building events. I was lucky enough to find Cave Creek Outfitters. Our team signed up for a horse ride, cowboy games and cowboy dinner package. We started off with an awesome horse ride through the desert. The timing was perfect as it was... More

I had a great ride with Cave Creek Outfitters a few days ago! While my husband was in a conference in Scottsdale, I treated myself to a two hour morning ride and I loved every minute. Everyone was extremely friendly and made me feel at home at the ranch immediately. The ranch is just my kind of place - not... More

I booked this outfitter on what they advertised on line. I'm aware that I did go during the slower season but thought maybe they would make some adjustments for that. Average stable/coral area, looks like they take care of their horses, but I've seen better. We booked the two hour ride which I thought would be plenty (we actually were... More

Dear Beamster, I would like to address your visit with us, as we take very much pride in our customer service. We do our very best to deliver what we advertise, there are times that our horses may push a bit faster and get back to the barn a few minutes sooner, and other times when they may get back... More
