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

Spur Cross Conservation area offers a beautiful scenic ride. We did the petroglyphs tour about 4 1/2 hours +/- depending on groups pace. No complaints from this group of riders, we all enjoyed the day and our guide (Dee) was educational of the area highlights. We will be back!

This was my second time on a horse and I was very pleased with this ride. We took the sunset ride out into the AZ desert and our guides name was Lee. We saw a coyote, 3 deer grazing, and the beauty of land. My horse followed behind the guide and was fully cooperative even though I was a novice.... More

We took the sunset hour and a half ride here on 23rd sept. It was an awesome way to see the Arizona desert. I can't remember the guide's name but she was very informative and really made the ride. We were lucky enough to see a Rattle Snake too. The horses just casually follow each other so there were no... More

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...

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
