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

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
