We took a one hour ride with our guide Boot. It was fabulous! He was very knowledgeable about the desert and very fun. He kept us entertained the entire trip and taught us a lot. The scenery was unbelievable and the horses were well trained and easy to ride.

Everyone there is very friendly and truly make you feel welcome. These friendly people covers every detail you need to know if its your first time on a horse! Which was my first time and I loved it! Weather was perfect. You just relax on the horse and hang on. Wear a hat and sunscreen if you sunburn easily. Bring... More

Amazing for beginners or experts alike. We had a great guide who was knowledgeable, friendly and patient. She provided us with instruction up front and interesting history and information about the desert and surrounding area throughout the ride. Would highly recommend this experience! We only did the 2 hour ride but will go back and do the 4.5 hour petroglyph... More

I was visiting family in Phoenix and decided we need to go horseback riding and turned to Google for help and came up with Spur Cross Stables. Went on the 1.5 hour sunset ride. There was a storm rolling in so we left a little earlier than scheduled to try and avoid the rain--no such luck. We did get rained... More

All of the trail guides are extremely well skilled and a joy to be around. The horses are well taken care of and the fact they don't put them in separate stalls but use a pasture and keep them in a herd is a huge plus!! The owner will take in rescues and see if they are able to become... More

the staff were friendly and took an appropriate time orienting the family to the location and the horses. The trail ride was described well in advance and I feel I received my monies worth. There are many icon Saguaro on the trail ride and there was time for many great pictures. The ride leader also offered to take the families... More

This review is for my visit in June 2010 (not 2015) when I took my very first desert ride with SCS... One of the best and most memorable experiences of my life! With four of my girlfriends from the East Coast in town for my birthday, I reserved a 90-min ride and had no expectations. We were treated to two... More

We took the one hour 8am ride and it was perfect. The staff and guides were excellent and the kids got to feed the horses and the other animals at the stable. I definitely recommend this place and we'll go back for sure!
