I bought the Groupon and scheduled a tour for me, my 2 kids (aged 9 and 6) and a friend and her daughter (13). I should start by saying I know very little about horses and have only ridden a few times. I had an okay time but only because my two kids seemed to enjoy the ride. I noticed... More

Hi Jennifer, The horse you are referring to is a horse that we rescued from a very bad situation. He was on his way to Mexico to be slaughtered, our ranch takes in about 6 rescue horses per year. The other horses actually are always getting compliments on how great they look compared to other stables customers have visited. When... More

We booked a three hour lunch ride from the Sedona stables. The lunch added an extra $20 per person and also meant there was no ride discount for our son. We had a great ride. Clay was a relaxed guide. We were happy to just walk and trot along, but if we had wanted a faster ride I am sure... More

Went today on the 3pm with Clay. He was fantastic and the horses were well taken care of and perfect for the 2 hour ride. Scenery was awesome as well. We'd definitely recommend them for fellow travelers.

This is the 10th time I have ridden with CWA. This is the 2ed time in the Prescott area. The weather was nice the horses where fresh and the ride went well. Kandice and Vance did a very nice job of guiding us along and through the Verde River. When things go well everyone is happy. When life happens and... More

We just got back from a ride with Candace. Not only was she a knowledgeable wrangler, she was friendly and fun to be with. We rode along the lovely Verde River at the bottom of a small canyon. The sky was endless and blue and our path was lined with cottonwood trees. My boys loved their horses: Mocha and Tank.... More

Bought a Groupon for a Trail Ride for my 4 grandchildren and daughter. I contacted Cow Boy Adventures and spoke to Candace to schedule the ride. I was advised the company was no longer operating in Prescott, they had moved and were now operating in Paulden, AZ . I wasn't too happy but went ahead an scheduled. Turns out Paulden... More

Barbara, I apologize we were unable to accommodate you on that day. I did leave you a message on the phone number you provided several hours prior to you ride time. Again we are sorry but when dealing with livestock and vehicles things are unpredictable. Our Prescott/Paulden location is the only location where we have to meet our customers and... More

On March 6 , 2014 I came off of a horse on a ride at Cowboy Adventures at the Sedona (Cottonwood) location. I broke my elbow in three places. I expect those in charge to be more well trained in emergencies than my wrangler was. No less than three times he told me to get back on the horse. Impossible... More

We did the 3 hour morning ride with Chris. When we got there he and Jen were there ready to get us settled in. We brought water with us, but decided to get water at the ranch, too. There is no running water, but we were able to buy bottles of water for just $1. The ride was beautiful. It... More

Do not use this company. I booked a family ride, drove to Prescott at the confirmed time and waited for 2 hours with no one showing up. I have called their number repeatedly for over 24 hours with out even getting a call back or my money refunded. They wasted an entire family day, a tank of gas, and disappointed... More

Dear Mike, We called you as soon as we could. We deeply apologize for not being able to be there for your ride and understand the disappointment your family experienced. Our ranch truck was stolen with the company phone. Management has since spoken to you, explained the situation, and offered a full refund. Please accept our deepest apologies. We have... More
