Wow, we loved it. We did the 2 hour ride and even though we are newbies, they were very welcoming. We went into Saguaro NP on very gentle horses. Our guides were great and it was also very informative. E-mail contact was very friendly and prompt. Great service. Would certainly do this again!!

Bobbi and Phil took my husband & I on a glorious ride through Saguarro Nat'l Park, enriched by interesting personal commentary, educational pearls, well-behaved horses, gorgeous views and personal attention which one experiences so rarely in current times. Phil helped my husband to trot a bit, which thrilled him no end. I was gob-smacked by the scenery, the lovely folk... More

Great place, very friendly people. We enjoyed our trail ride very much. Beautiful scenery, the ride took us through saguaro national monument east. The horses are beautiful (living the good live it seems).

LOVED this excursion. Our guide took us through Saguaro National Park and shared little tidbits and history about the area. Very friendly and reasonably priced

A memorable way to explore the Sonoran desert. Bobbi Houston and her family welcome riders of all abilities. They made our family of four feel very comfortable with our horses and provided an educational trail ride through part of the Saguaro National Forest (East). So glad we picked Houston's to help us make a wonderful family memory.

I'm not a experienced horseback rider, but anyone in reasonable shape can do this. The horses are gentle and know the routine. Just a few minutes from this stable and you are in one of the best places to view the Sonoran Desert, Saguaro cactus included. The cactus are HUGE, much bigger than I had imagined. The tour guide is... More

Three of our family members went during the morning trail ride and two of us went to the evening. Whatever time of day you enjoy this is a great experience. My daughter and I went to the afternoon ride near sunset. We saw a Coyote resting in the shade. Bobbi, the owner, was our guide. We have some great photos... More

This place rocks. The horses are older, very well behaved former rodeo stars, all healthy, happy and taken care of like you would expect an ardent horse lover to do. The ride can be private or in a group, and great care is taken to put the right horse with rider. The trails through Saguaro NP are downright gorgeous, sublime,... More
