Spent the weekend in AZ with friends and decided to bring our 6 and 7 year old on a trail ride. Our guide was awesome. He took things slow for the kids and explained everything to them in depth prior to our ride. My 6 year old was a little nervous at first and we weren't sure she would even... More

I selected them since this was a spur of the moment decision & I didn't have proper shoes. They provide cowboy boots & hats if you'd like to have them. My trail guide was Kayleigh. She was very friendly but I couldn't hear what she was saying unless she turned around. It would be helpful if she projected a bit... More

I don't always write reviews but the experience at Cave Creek Trailrides was so exceptional I owe it to them. The horses are gentle and well suited to beginners, the trails and views are amazing and of course, our guide Joe was friendly, knowledgable and attentive. In fact the whole staff is awesome! This was a great experience and my... More

While in Cave Creek, we were referred to Cave Creek Trail Rides. We opted to do the sunset 1.5 hour trail ride. It was such a great time! Randolph, our guide clearly loves what he does. He was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We had a great time and would most definitely do it again!

My wife and I took the kids on the "Ride with the Ranger to the Clay Mine" tour. The ride to the mine is short and the tour was fun an informative. We all really enjoyed it.

I have taken my family on other trail rides in Arizona and this one is by far the best so far.

They actually listen to... More

Easy to get to. Lovely scenic views on our sunset ride. Good for beginners, even though we're experienced. It was safe, and we appreciated the size of the groups. The staff were all good, and knowledgeable. We would have liked to have a little more connection with the guides (like their background), more introduction to the horses (their age and... More

We did the 1.5 hour sunset ride through the mountains. The guide was hilarious and knowledgeable, and also safety-oriented. The views were beautiful, and the guide stopped to take our pictures on horseback at just the right point during sunset. The horses are gentle and easy to manage, even for my 2nd grade kiddo. They know the trail & follow... More

We spent about $50 per person to go on a 1.5 hour travel ride through a state park. We went up a mountain/hill that had nice views of the desert and overall it was fun, the guide was nice and answered any questions you had, and it was just a good time. I have nothing negative to say, I'd go... More

I have been around horses and have no issues with them however, my wife had a very bad experience with a horse when she was in college. This event took place over 30 years ago and until yesterday she was petrified of being anywhere near a horse. While taking her brother's family on a hike in Cave Creek Regional Park... More
