We had 7 people -- ranging in age from 9 years old to 76 years old, on a two hour trail ride through the desert. Our guide, James, was super friendly and even took my husband's camera for about 10 minutes -- taking different photos of our group that we could sort through later. He also led us to a... More

I'm so glad we found Cave Creek on Trip Advisor! Making reservations was easy. Finding it was easy. It is a really nice ranch with fun out buildings and picnic tables - and nice, clean restrooms! My friend had ridden elsewhere that didn't have any. The ride was through the desert with gorgeous views. We saw a few animals, but... More

Five members of my family went on a Sunday morning, 2 hour ride. Call the day before, to get a spot. We went 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m., which I was glad of, as the day heated up. Experienced staff made sure the horses were matched to our riding experiences. Jeff, our wrangler gave us lots of info re the Desert, plants,... More

I took my two kids and their friend -- ages 12, 13 and 15. We did the 2-hour ride and we all are beginners. So the horses mostly walked. Though they'd be bored with the peacefulness and walking. They weren't. My son, especially, can't stop talking about it. Great outdoor family time!

My wife and I did the 2hour ride in early January. The day got off to a good start when Cheryl picked us up from our hotel. She was friendly and easy to talk with. Our tour guide Jeff was great. He was very knowledgeable about the desert, plants and animals. He also showed off his photography skills by taking... More

We usually come to Phoenix/Scottsdale for a week to thaw out during Spring break. We love being lazy by the pool but we also try to choose a couple of family friendly adventures. This place was first recommended to us by the concierge at the Marriott Desert Ridge villas. It was easy to find by car. I was impressed with... More

I live here in the area and have my own horses. Usually when I have family vistiting, we do the "horse experience" with our own horses. That entails a lot of extra work and stress on my part. This time, I decided to gift an Arizona Experience to my family and enjoy it too! For the Christmas Holiday my two... More

My family went to visit Scottsdale, AZ during the Thanksgiving week and I planned a 2 hr horseback ride and James was our wrangler. He was AWESOME! James was funny and entertaining during our ride as well as educational. He knew a lot about the desert and plant life, along with telling some good stories. Even our 6 year old... More
