Very high quality trail ride operation - well groomed & well mannered horses. Outstanding staff - our guide (Jeff) was really helpful, managed rider skill levels well, and provided a ton of great narrative throughout our ride. This was our son's 1st time to ride on his own (8 years old). He absolutely loved it - and I think most... More

Traveled to Arizona for the Fiesta Bowl and decided to do the 2 hour trail ride. It was our favorite part of the trip. The ride was the perfect length, our guide was incredible and fun! An interactive experience with stopping to look at different flora and fauna, complete with smelling sage and creosote. Thanks for a memorable New Years... More

The horses seemed well cared for! Our Wrangler Pam was full of information about the desert and surrounding area. She made great local recommendations. We learned a lot about the local ecosystem! She was fun, personable, and knowledgeable!

While perhaps a bit corny, it was nice they offered Cowboy boots, hats and chaps. Makes for fun pictures. My kids and husband enjoyed the 1 1/2 hour trail ride. Their guide was a very friendly real cowboy from I think Idaho. He constantly was checking on my daughter who rode at the back. It was especially nice that they... More

Sorry, you have us mistaken for another company as we do not offer hats and boots at our location. You may have confused us with Cave Creek Trailrides. Thank you More

Cave Creek Outfitters were recommended by our hotel in Scottsdale. They are about a 30 minute drive out to the Sonoran Desert and they are a first class outfitter. Our guides Ryan and Cher were terrific. They set up our group with horses specific to everyone's riding ability and were extremely patient with some of the more novice riders. Once... More

We had a lovely trail ride. My husband and children have only been in a horse a couple of times. My kids (including my 12 year old son with Asperger's syndrome) have never lead a horse. Everyone had a great time. I felt very comfortable with the horses. The wrangler was very helpful and knowledgable about the area's history and... More

I booked an all day experience for myself and my entire team while visiting Scottsdale, and I haven't had an easier time working with a company. From the first phone call I made, Gregger was exceptional. Always answered his phone, always responded quickly to emails, and always followed through when he said he would. We spent the entire day at... More

Cave Creek Outfitters is a great way to see the local flora and fauna in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Our friend David took us there to give us some real cowboy flavor. The people were great and BZ was an awesome guide. Totally recommended if you're headed out that way! Thanks!
