Having never been on a horse, it was something I wanted to try while visiting Arizona. I found a few places online, but this one stood out because of the background of the owners (rodeo clown and large animal Veterinarian). I'm a tree-hugger type, and care about animal welfare so it was important that the horses be well cared for... More

My daughter found an excellent rating for Saguaro Lake Stables online, so we decided to give it a try. It was about a 45 minute drive from Scottsdale. The drive was easy and the nearby Tonto National Forest was beautiful. We took the two hour trailride and it was gorgeous! The lake view and desert were amazing. Excellent and the... More

Visited the Ranch in early December with my wife for a two hour ride. Although we have not been riding before Ron and Adriana were very helpful in making sure we feel comfortable and won't hurt after the ride. I highly suggest the two hour ride as we got to experience the desert, lake, plants and Ron's incredible knowledge of... More

We had a really great time with the folks at Saquaro Lake Ranch Stables. I went on a 2 hour horseback ride with my two kids (13 and 16) and my uncle (69). We all four have substantial experience riding horses, so two hours may not be for everybody, but if you like the desert and horses, you can't go... More

The owners of this place Ron and Adriana are incredibly sweet, knowledgeable, and enjoyable to be around! Ron was our guide and he made it a very fun and beautiful ride! I appreciated his knowledge on the area, plants, and animals as well as some history of the area. My mom, sister, and I did a 2 hour ride and... More

Ron is the owner and he is not only 100% knowledgable about everything related to horses, but he is a wonderful man! His patience with us novice riders, knowledge of history and the land and willingness to answer our dumb questions with a smile was beyond terrific. Dan is a character too!

We were sad to hear that Gerald and Loretta won't be returning to Saguaro Lake Ranch for the 2014 fall season ... their hospitality over the past 7 years will TRULY be missed and we wish them all the best! The good news is ... there's another outfit taking their place and we plan on joining them this fall of... More

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our horse back adventure not only because of the stunning scenery, but the guide we had was so informative about the land, wildlife and horses. We learnt so much while traveling 2 hours horseback winding up and down through cactuses, streams, and overlooking Saguaro Lake. Not only that, this small family owned business is... More
