This is my first ride. I kind of worried before I got there. But they have strong, clean and well-trained horses. And trainers are friendly and helpful. My trainer lead my horse so that I can enjoy the riding. One of my friends have a lot of experience on riding. So she can ride on her own. The tour was... More

Well run outfit. Walking tour that began on time with 1 1/2 hrs of actual walking. Well cared for horses with a ratio of one guide to two renters. Clear safety instructions, well mannered horses, good equipment, beautiful desert views. Everyone enjoyed the outing.

Houston's Ranch: Found recommendations for these folks Googling "horseback riding Tucson" when planning a horseback riding excursion on a recent visit to Tucson. Houston's is just off East Speedway about 2 miles from the 4 stop sign intersection. Look left for the windmill blades converted into a sign for the entrance road. You know you are at the right place... More

This was a great ride out into the desert. Kayla was great and her sidekick was very informative about the desert. The horses were well groomed and easily handled the varying terrain we rode through. I've been to some horse ranches that the horses were pretty stuck in there ways and never veered from the butt of the horse in... More

My husband and I enjoyed a private trail ride with Bobbi this past Thursday. It was a great experience for two "green horns" from New Hampshire. The horses were very sweet. The views were amazing. And Bobbi was great. It was a very fun and memorable experience. We would highly recommend it. Thank you Bobbi!

We enjoyed a nice morning ride in desert on horseback - Bobbi and her crew did a great job. We recommend this friendly horse loving farm.

Visited a friend and four of us went trail riding on the afternoon ride with Chris as our guide. Great time! The scenery was awesome, the horses were very nice much better than what you hear the "trail riding horses" are like. Would recommend this group to anyone experienced or not. All but one had ridden all of our lives,... More

The horses are nice & people are friendly. The location was awesome! Our group is only 5 adults and 1 child. We had a guide and a helper... Highly recommended! The guide is really nice, but she was very soft spoken. So I only heard may be 20% of what she said... so if you're information seeker, make sure you're... More

I researched this company based on the horse welfare and was very excited to be surrounded by caring handlers. The staff were friendly and knowledgable and Bobbi very much in charge and ensuring the best possible service. Views spectacular.

The location is beautiful, our wrangler- Kayla- was phenomenal, and the horses were sweet. Unfortunately, our trip was only "okay" due to the amount of people on our ride.There were twelve riders and three guides on the two-hour tour. This was annoying right away because once we were on the saddle, we had to sit and wait for over a... More

Hi Mariah, Thank you so much for your genuine feedback. We're glad that you enjoyed riding with Kaila (she's great, we agree!) and that you were able to see how kind our horses are. However, we're so sorry that you weren't able to fully enjoy your experience with us! We encourage you to visit again and try one of our... More
