Being a total novice and always wanting to try horse riding, we decided to book with Arizona Horseback Experience. We arrived a little nervous but there was no reason to be, Val our guide was fantastic, we managed to mount and dismount in a very short time. Then we were off, it was a brilliant afternoon one we will never... More

My husband and I booked the ride and wine tasting experience. Our guide Valerie was delightful, our horses were terrific and the ride, weather and wine tasting we're awesome. A great time!

Nestled near the beautiful Coronado National Forest, Ron and Marge's well-run horse outfitter put together a wonderful 3-day trip into the Huachuca Mountains. The strong, well trained horses were a real pleasure. As was Ron (wrangler & owner), who also really knows how to cook. A great balance of outdoor adventure, caring for the horses, and of course learning to... More

This was a highlight of my business trip to Tucson! While on business we were lucky enough to get a couple days off and we found Arizona Horseback on the web and I am so glad we did! After the beautiful drive out to the ranch we were greeted by some excellent people. The owners are amazing folks and they... More

The Izzos outfit is the best run operation of its type that I have experienced. They are careful to understand the level of the rider. Good quality stock is matched to the rider. The lead rider was knowledgeable of the area, friendly, safety conscious. The area that we got to ride through was stunningly beautiful. This was not a nose... More

AZ Horseback Experience advertises that the ride is geared to the experience of the rider, and when providing the nonrefundable deposit for the reservation, you are even asked your level of experience and what type of horse you would like ride, i.e. frisky, calm, etc. BUT, when the ride takes place, everybody rides in single file behind the ever-so chatty...

And we had an amazing vacation! My family took a three hour ride through some amazing scenery. The horses were not your typical "get me back to the barn now" type of trail plodders. The owners took special care to tailor the horse to each rider's experience level and our guide, though relatively new, was fun and full of neat... More

My daughter and I booked a 3 hour ride. I felt like I was a real cowboy riding through the west! The owner was great. He was patient, very friendly, very knowledgable of the whole area, and looked out for our safety at all times. He made the whole experience memorable and I can't wait to go back for a... More

It si a great experience!! The staff is wonderful and the ride is incredible. You start off at the house of the owners and go to an open range ranch area which is full of wildlife and western scenery. You go up hill and downhill through washes and hills, until you get to the winnery where you have lunch and... More

My wife and I went riding recently with Ron and Cat and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We were on a short visit from Florida and had made arrangements beforehand. Marge was great in setting us up with compatible horses (Barney and Chief) and after a quick safety briefing, equipment check, and prayer, we got started without any stress or... More
