Husband and I went for a sunset ride. It went pretty good in the beginning. The entire trail was through a wash so there was wildlife running around but you couldn't really see the mountains. The guides seemed friendly enough. They were younger, early 20s to mid 20s maybe. While walking on the trail my horse and the one in... More

I trailer my horse regularly to the Sahuaro Monument in Tucson. My friend and I were arriving back at our trailer when a wrangler and about 6 people were taking off on a ride. He was a guide from Pantano Stables. The last young girl in the group, who weighed all of 80 lbs., was on a mare that could... More

My daughter received a trail ride as one of her presents for her birthday. I used to ride horses all the time but have not been on one in years. Everyone was very kind and patient. The horses were sweet and my daughter was in heaven. I was too as a matter of fact. Loved this place. I would recommend... More

I'm not much of a horseback rider, but my family did this as a birthday gift for my daughter. She loved it. It was a slow, easy trail ride, with all the horses following the one in front. Unfortunately, I was the last in line and got a face full of dust. Even my horse got annoyed and kept walking... More

Pantano Riding Stables was far from a scenic view. Unless you consider a overpass and bud wiser cans visually pleasing. We paid for a hour and a half and only received an hour! There was no real trail and walked around a small field. DO NOT GO HERE, pay the extra money to go horse back riding somewhere else while... More

I really liked their holiday ride, with ONE big exception. They charged to sit on Santa's lap. SERIOUSLY? I can see charging for a picture, but to say hi to Santa? That is absolutely the greediest thing I think I have ever seen. BEWARE of this, because you can imagine how upset some children might get if you don't bring... More

I came in April with four family members and we all absolutely loved it. The ride was with Dillion. Last week I came by myself for a sunset ride and it was so fun. This ride was with Alyssa and she is very capable and friendly. The value of the ride makes it so affordable. Treat yourself to a Tucson... More

I was very upset by the way that this business is being run. First off, I was a wrangler at a dude ranch for 5 years so I know exactly how the business is run. The ride was awful and was no "scenic" at all. The staff needs a serious reform and so do the facilities. The tack was not... More

Having read about many horseback riding experiences into the desert, we expected a little more than we got for our money. We didn't ride into the desert. We rode around...and around...in a dry river bed. Yes, there were a few cactus, as promised. And they didn't misrepresent the experience. We just had higher expectations. The best part was the staff.... More
