I loved that Cave Creek was able to get me in when someone else could not. I feel that this worked out as they were very organized and probably gave a lot more information on the area. We learned about what animals live in the area and what Indian tribes had had territory in the area. The horses were very... More

Very pretty trail ride thru the Tongas Forest. Wranglers were professional and horses were top notch. I took a 2 hour ride which was just perfect. We saw jack rabbits, birds and encountered swarms of butterflies. Horses ride through the cactus desert.

We purchased a Groupon deal after reading the rave reviews of past Cave Creek customers. Cave Creek is tucked away past large ranchettes and homes. Easy to find with the directions. Our ride was through beautiful Tonto National Forest dotted with ancient saguaro cactus, and classic western landscape for thousands of acres. We chose the 2 hour ride, and James... More

I'm visiting from NYC and had never been horseback riding. I did the 2 hour trip with Jeff and had a blast! The trip was fun and informative - with friendly staff, beautiful well-cared-for well-trained horses, and gorgeous scenery. Fantastic!

Had a wonderful experience today at Cave Creek Outfitters. Did the 2hour early morning tour through the dessert and mountain range. Owner Cheryl and her staff run a very smooth and enjoyable horseback tour service. Their horses are magnificent and very well cared for. Jeff was our Wrangler for the tour and he was very knowledgable with the history of... More

We took the one hour , 5.00pm , ride into the Tonto National Forest. It was excellent. The staff explained the trip, helped us to mount from mounting steps and showed us the basics of controlling the horse. The horses were excellent, quiet, steady and clearly familiar with the route. Out guide , Jeff, explained the landscape, the climate, the... More

Our guide was Jeff and he was great. The horses are all well behaved and clearly well cared for. The early 8am ride was lovely and peaceful and a little hit but it is August. 2 hours of bliss. If you are going to go riding and you are staying in Scottsdale then this ranch is a must. Great value... More

Our 2 hr ride in Scottsdale was the #1 thing that our kids remembered from a 5 day trip to AZ. Not the Jeep trip, not biking in Sedona or the Grand Canyon. Horsebackriding with Jeff in the Sonoran Desert was their favorite memory.
