I love horseback riding when on vacation. This was a great ride in the Sonoran desert and very educational. Learned about the Indian nations in the area. Also learned about vegetation and wildlife. The horses were well trained and in great condition. A funny thing was the "outhouse". It was actually a very nice facility and ironically the toilet paper... More

We decided to go horseback riding in Scottsdale, even though I ride once every 15 years. we read about Cave Creek on trip advisor, so we called and they picked us up at hotel - extra $10 pp but worth it. Our two hour ride through desert was excellent. About 10 customers along with two attentive staff made for a... More

A few months ago when my wife and I were planning our trip to Scottsdale we knew we wanted to go horseback riding as it's not something we can do at home and we wanted to ride through the desert. Now it had been almost 35 years since I had been on a horse (my wife went more recently) so... More

Went for an hour long trail ride last week with 2 of my good friends. Ryan took us out. It was exactly as we expected...fun! Be careful to not choose Cave Creek Trailrides when mapping your directions. We ran a little late because of this mistake on our part. Ryan was super cool about us being a few minutes late.... More

We chose this place based on reviews here and were not disappointed. We booked a 2 hour ride and we were the only ones on it. Jeff was our guide, Joe and Annie were our horses. We were impressed when we drove up - very easy to find based on clear directions. There were many horses prepped for the day... More

We had a great 2 hour ride on a Sunday morning after a few days of showers, so the desert was alive with blooming cactus and wildlife was very active. I'm sorry I can't remember our wrangler's name, but he was very thorough in explaining the plants and animals we were seeing on the ride. This was our first trip... More

This was a 1 hour ride with John. John did a fantastic job with the group. We had some initial nervousness from my 8 year old. It was a great ride, appropriate for the skill level of the riders. The horses were well behaved. John was good highlighting the flora and fauna. Overall we were very happy.

We took a 2 hour ride with John. The views were wonderful, the horses fairly well-behaved, and sharing the ride with friends - priceless. John was knowledgeable about the flora and the fauna and shared throughout the trip. I am an experienced rider but still found the ride very enjoyable. A less-experienced friend felt safe and comfortable on the horse.... More

This place has been around for a long time, and it's a classic, fabulous spot with well trained horses and terrific guides. It's under new ownership and I am praying it doesn't change. Our guide James taught us a lot about the desert flora and fauna. He had a great sense of humor and the scenery was gorgeous.

A week at a conference meant me and two colleagues had seen only the inside of meeting rooms for four days! I am so very pleased we took the trouble to find a truly local activity to experience the wonder of Arizona. A ride with the Creek Outfitters team for 2 hours was incredible and something we'll never forget......it brought... More
