We had a large group and cowboy way accommodated us. We had a great time with our guide Chris, he was so friendly and informative. He even let us stray off the path a little as long as we were being safe for ourself and the horse - this was so appreciated as it really enhanced our experience vs just... More

The 2 cowboys who checked us in were great. We were matched with a horse that matched our riding experience.There were 4 in our group plus Chris the cowboy guide. We had 2 with experience, 1 with little experience and 1 with no experience. All 4 of us had a great time. We would do this again. We were able... More

Cowboy Chris led us on a fantastic horseback ride. Not your typical follow-the-leader ride made it fun for everyone in our party, including an 8 year old. Highly recommend.

Took this side trip in Cottonwood, AZ. A real snoozer. Not impressed. Our guide was on the quite side and didn't talk much about "anything". The ride was in a long boring valley with nothing to see except dust. In our group was a young kid around 10 yrs old who because it was so dusty had drank alot of... More

We had visited the stables in Cottonwood before we decided to ride with this outfit. Saw the previous reviews. But the wrangler who was supposed to be our guide, Jake, decided to take his girlfriend on her first horsebackride. He presented another guy who was to be our guide who didn't know the trails. The 2 hour sunset ride was... More

Dear RagLady, We are so sorry you did not enjoy your ride. Please call and talk to management about your concerns. We want happy guests and would like to make it up to you somehow. On most rides, our guests walk, trot and canter on their horses. However, our goal is safety first. Our wranglers are trained not to allow... More

I bought a livingsocial deal for horseback riding at this ranch. When I called to make the appointment, I told Linda that my voucher had expired. She told me I could extend it (and extend the ride from 90 minutes to 2 hours) for a small fee. She was very helpful and friendly. My husband and I were the only... More

We have taken other trail rides in different states and enjoyed the experience. Cowboy Way Adventures isn't the standard nose-to-tail, just plug along, mind numbing horseback ride. No siree, Bob. In fact, Jake (a/k/a Marlboro man) encouraged us to pick our own path and not play follow-the-leader. As somewhat experienced riders, we were allowed to take a more aggressive route... More

This morning, my 15 year old daughter and I took a two hour trail ride with this outfit. The experience was pleasant and efficient, from booking the ride to getting off the horse, and everything in between. We are both experienced riders, and were pleased to have the freedom to explore the area without staying on the main trail. The... More

Lynda K from Lima, NY From the great service reserving the ride to Jake our wrangler/guide, it was perfection.

I have owned and ridden horse all my life but at 66, with 2 knee replacements, 40 extra pounds and 6 years... More

I took my 10 year old daughter for a ride today and that is what we got, a RIDE. She loves horses and we are typically in a single file line, walking along a typical trail. Great thing about this ride is we had the luxury of getting a true riding/sight seeing experience. Not only that, but in a controlled... More
