Weve been several times and each one is a wonderful getaway! Pretty easy to find, off the Bush hiway. You can elect for a two or four hour float; gear is "sit on", not "sit in". Depending on the time of the year and the lake release, the water is faster than others. We've never been when we didn't see... More

We saw an ad for Saguaro Lake Ranch in a freebie magazine at our hotel. John and Shawna-Lee were working on the day and were fabulous hosts. John's explanation of the trip was thorough and the little Map was the perfect touch. We all had a great time, despite a tip out early on in the jouney!! I hear you... More

We took a spring break trip to Phoenix and decided to do some horseback riding. We picked Saguaro lake Ranch Stables and we are so glad we did! Ron was our guide, and he was great, pointing out local plants and scenery and telling us about the Saguaro Lake and dam. My husband rode Doobie, I rode Andelae and our... More

My husband and I went on the one hour trail ride yesterday with Ron and Caleb as our wranglers. We would have preferred a two hour ride, but the two hour was already sold out. That's OK, it just gives us another reason to return next season! We LOVED our horseback ride today--the weather was perfect, the scenery was breathtaking,... More

Wow! If there's a heaven on earth this must be the place! My good friend Britta brought me to this place and we spent a weekend there. We went horseback riding, hiking, swimming in the pool, eating delicious food and had such a good time! The owners and employees are so warm, friendly and welcoming! To sit in the evening... More

We were visiting family in the Phoenix area and they suggested we go horseback riding at Saguero ranch. I had not been on a horse for over 25 years, and my 4 boys had only ridden ponies at a fair. So I planned our ride for the last day of a week-long trip. By that time we had gone to... More

Took a 1 1/2 hour trail ride in the desert. A beautiful view of the lake and desert. The ranch staff are really patient and helpful for those people who are not used to horses. The horses are well cared for and healthy by loving staff and a vet.

I took the one hour trail ride at 8 in the morning. It was a lovely ride for people who don't ride much - an hour was a perfect amount of time to spend on a horse. The trail crossed a stream and wound up through the desert into the mountain where we had beautiful views of a big lake... More

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
