Went horseback riding for the first time ever and made a great choice for where to go. The entire staff was friendly and very informative. The guide made the ride very informative and fun. The horse was friendly and fully cooperative. The desert scenery was awesome. I will be back for a longer ride.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Spur Cross Stables staff, we had an amazing time there. Levi & Valentine were our horses for our rides, very well behaved & gorgeous. Next time we're in Arizona we will definitely be back for a longer ride. Recommend this place for anyone who wants a fantastic day out.

This was my 2nd visit to Spur Cross Stables. After such an excellent, memorable, and fun experience at SCS in 2010, I was very excited to return, bringing my friend visiting from Canada. Extremely disappointing experience. Our guide was surly and foul-mouthed, swearing at me more than once. He kept repeating for me to kick my very slow horse -... More

There is nothing to say but our apologies. This wrangler has been having some personal issues and we have been working with him to resolve them. We like to work with our people, hopefully to help them to handle their issues and be productive for the stable AND be an excellent guide for the guests. Lots of talent but just... More

My husband and I have just returned from holiday. We visited here on the 16th June for a 2 hour ride. Having only ridden a horse once. We received a very warm welcome from Debbie, and our guide (we think boot, typical cowboy, silver spurs and very knowledgeable) from the Start they both made us feel very safe explaining the... More

Our family doesn't have a lot of experience on horses so we were happy to find a place that offered options for riding (if you have more experience, just ask! they are more than happy to fit you with the right riding experience). We easily booked a time over the phone for the day we wanted (same day too). We... More

I enjoy riding and the Sonoran desert speaks for itself, which is good since I could only hear about 25% of what the guide said, and I was the 5th out of 8 riders. Furthermore, roughly half of what I could hear was the guide scolding us for having our horses too close together, too far apart, and for letting... More

My friend and I went on the 2.5 hour ride, and it was quite boring. We did nothing but walk the entire ride. I came here expecting to go out on the trail and have moments where you could trot or get a little run in between places where walking is the only option. We were sorely disappointed. Our guide...

Good afternoon; We are sorry your loading experience was not what we shoot for, I will talk to everyone and set the bar higher. I have been conducting horseback riding in the Arizona Area for 15 years and we have not at any time moved at more than a walk. Our stable has some of the nicest trails and we... More

I have ridden all my life, having owned horses in the past, I requested a private ride on a rough trail. Boots was the wrangler/guide on the old stage coach trail to 7 Springs, which was approximately a 7 hour ride. Boots had a great deal of information about the area and took great pains to ensure my ride was... More

There were four of us, and no one was an experienced rider. Two had barely ever ridden and one not at all. The remaining rider had been riding only a few times since she was a child. The ramp made mounting and dismounting easy. I have had knee issues and the staff willingly gave me a little boost so I... More
