However, after meeting the wranglers at Cave Creek Outfitters, I felt more comfortable than I ever thought I could. There were ten of us ready to go on a one hour ride, but because I was so nervous, Pam, my Wrangler, decided to let... More

Headed their during Passover for holiday/vacation time and had an incredible experience horseback riding with these awesome people. The hour and a half ride through the desert was absolutely beautiful and the cowboys that led the trip were very informative and friendly. Would definitely recommend!

Pam and Emma were great wranglers!!! They were super knowledgeable about the surrounding area as well as the trail we traveled. I would highly recommend cave creek if you've never ridden before. I told them upfront I had never ridden and was very nervous. They paired me with a perfect horse and helped calm the nerves immediately. Awesome adventure and... More

Our wrangler James was great-pointed out a lot of the vegetation and facts about the desert and was excellent in keeping all of us in our party together. I had my 2 young daughters with me and I felt safe and confident with the experience. Great way to see the desert!

Today we did the 2 hour trail ride with our 2 children (ages 13 and 9). Pam was our amazing trail guide and showed us the wildlife in the area. The setting is beautiful with views of the mountains. The horses are beautiful and easy to manage even for us newbies. We did the Trail Boss package which included an... More

We have two boys, 7 & 9. The 7 year old lead the way! The horses were extremely well behaved. Our guide was James and he was genuine and fun. They give you a water for your saddlebag and James was happy to take photos with our camera. The horses are used to the trails and are sure footed. Once... More

One of the best vacation activities we've done with our not-so-easily impressed teens! The business was well-run, friendly, and especially helpful for those of us who were first-time riders. Pam was a terrific guide -- fun, very knowledgeable & competent; I felt completely comfortable in her care. She also took pictures for us that turned out great. Plus the desert... More

Coming from the east coast, it was interesting to ride among all different types of cactus and see the mountains in the background Very... More

First trip to Arizona for me and my sons (16, 14), and we wanted to go for a ride and learn a bit about the Sonoran landscape. JW, our tour guide, was AMAZING! She shared so much great information about the cacti and local foliage, the animals that we might see (luckily no snakes, but we did see some jackrabbits... More
