We arrived late in the day, so we only had time for the one hour ride. It was really fun. My husband and I had really nice horses. The scenery is incredible and Debby ( I think that was her name) the guide was funny and informative. We could hear the coyotes howling in the canyons, what a great experience!

The Smoke Tree Ranch Stables made our vacation a truly memorable experience for me and my kids. The ride is beautiful, like you are riding through the old west with barely a hint of the nearby city. The guide was super friendly and helpful and the horses were great. My 13 year old daughter and 10 year old son had... More

First timers will love Smoke Tree Stables. They have mature, gentle, and graceful horses that you can rent and ride near the mountains. It's great fun, but don't expect to be galloping off in the distance. You're not riding Silver.

We stopped in with our family of 5 and chose the 2 hour ride that started at 3:00 - we had the place to ourselves and Jeff was our guide. What a fun experience. The horses were great and the trail was beautiful. We are all novices but Jeff was a big help and we got the hang of it... More

After a quick one-hour ride earlier in the week at STS, my daughter (11 years old) and I went back for the 2 hour ride to the oasis. We were lucky to ride with our guide Howard who was very informative and made sure we were comfortable/safe on our ride. We were also fortunate that for both rides, it was... More

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...

We did a two hour private ride and went to Murray Canyon -... More
