We had a completely different experience than the person who wrote the previous review. We went on a one hour sunset ride with our two children (10 and 8) and had a wonderful time. It was a group of eight with one wrangler in front and one in the back. They were great with the kids and told us a... More

Although promised no more than 10 would be in our group, there were 16 with one guide at the front and one at the rear. We sat for over 30 minutes on our horses waiting for the group to come together. Difficult to hear the guide. Given the number of horses, we were stopping every 5 minutes for the horses... More

Absolutely wonderful! Had a group of 8, adults and kids as young as 9. Beautiful tour and the guides were wonderful. Penny and Jacob gave history of the mountain and area. Took the 1 hr tour. Price was reasonable. Would definitely recommend!

My husband and I wanted a real break from "the everyday" and from our snowy PA home. In regular life, I own a horse and ride English every day, while he is novice horseman...maybe five rides in his life, mostly of the "pony ride" variety. We hoped we could find a place to enjoy both some warmer weather and some... More

I love riding horses and it was my wife's first time. This was so much fun, my horse Garth was great and Pearl was perfect for my wife. Though we were in the back of the tour and really could not hear the lead guide, the guide in the back kept us in the loop. It was if she was... More

We decided to go for a 1 hour horse back ride in the desert. We had well trained horses and our guide Yellowsnake was initially intimidating but very helpful. If you have never ridden a horse or are afraid of horses one trip to Spur Cross Stables will change your view of horses and your view of the desert for... More

It was such a special afternoon. The views were amazing, and there's nothing like seeing the countryside on horseback. They owners make the entire experience easy. You don't have to know how to ride. The guides, and horses, take care of everything for you. I went on the two hour ride, next time I will do four hours. It goes... More
