I am an avid rider and recently took a private ride with KC through the Indian Canyons. What a fantastic experience. If you ever get this opportunity don't miss it. Horses are beautiful and could not have asked for a more pleasant experience. Will definitely be returning...

Our last two nights of our tour ended in Palm Springs( which we have fallen in love with) and fortunately... More

This was my first time riding, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The price was a tad more than I expected to pay, but overall it was nice. The place was pretty tame so my GF and I got to go by ourselves for no extra cost, which was nice. The guide was super friendly and chatty, so... More

What a great way to see the canyon! My husband (who has only ridden once 30 + years ago and is somewhat afraid of horses) and I took the 2 hour ride at 8:00 am. I haven't ridden in 5 years, but rode quite a lot when I was younger. Josh was our guide and he was terrific. I rode... More

we enjoyed a 3 hour ride up the indian canyon. it was nice to see this from a different perspective. my daughter loved it as did the whole family. would do it again for sure, but perhaps would book the am trip to avoid getting in the shadows of the pm ride.

The people were awesome, the horses are awesome, I adore this place. They are very accommodating and the ride was beautiful. My husband had never rode and they made him feel very comfortable. This is a great place to ride and see beautiful Palm Springs! Don't miss it! Josh was our guide he was great!

Went there to try out horseback riding for the first time. My fiancee had ridden before some years ago. We were greeted by two very friendly gentlemen and after a chat, we went to it. About an hour ride, good conversation and nice scenery. We had a great time! Next time in SoCal, we´re getting the two hout ride. Definitely... More
