Ms Houston & Company are the epitome of excellence in professionalism, enthusiasm and graciousness. It was my first time on a horse, and thanks to everyone there, it won't be my last. My only fear is that she raised my expectations so high, every subsequent experience will pale by comparison!!! Whether you have one day in Tucson or 10, do... More

this was a wonderful morning ride. The horses were well trained and did great in the group. Our guide was attentive and the trail ride took us into the national park. The view on horseback was better than our sightseeing trip from our car the day before. The ride was great for my 22 y/I nephew and my 81 y/o... More

It is obvious the Houston's love what they do. Friendly staff, well cared for horses. Great way to see mountain views in Tucson.

We went in the morning, and it was a beautiful day. My daughter and I have never ridden on a horse, so a new experience for us, the other rider was my sister with a little bit of riding knowledge. Everyone at the ranch was so helpful and friendly, we all felt comfortable right away. The ride was beautiful and... More

We had an awesome time on our ride with a 15 year old girl and ten year old son. Emily was wonderful with the ten year old keeping him engaged. We all learned about the desert landscape. Everyone was friendly, helpful and warm. Would ride with again in a heartbeat.

My family had a great visit to Houston's! There were 12 of us from Boston, including 5 kids (ages 9-70). Bobby & her staff were knowledgable & attentive to the needs of each level! The ranch was heaven... A true American ranch, set up for family & work, not a tourist trap at all! Thank you Houston's, I look forward... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time horseback riding with them. The staff were friendly and knowledgable. Riding out to the Saguaro National Park was peaceful and memorable. The horses we got, Tom and Remington were very well-trained and friendly. :) :) X & L Wolf

My wife and I had a great two hour trail ride here. She was completely inexperienced on horseback but did great because of the caring professional staff at Houston's that took the time to help her and teach her the basics. The staff and owners are friendly and welcoming but obviously put safety first, as we would expect, and they... More

Probably, the friendliest staff we have ever seen at a stable. Good solid horses. Nice ride thru the national forest, although being from Florida it didn't look like much of a forest.. The stable property is quite interesting as well with the old trucks, cars, and equipment.. Highly recommended! The ride costs $60 for about 2 hours.

As the reviews have said, Bobbi provides a wonderful riding experience. We opted for the private ride, 2 full hours of heavenly desert, mountain vistas, and informative communication with Bobbi about Tucson. Good, solid and well-behaved horses. We hadn't ridden in a few years but we managed with no problem thanks to Bobbi's helpful coaching ("heels down") and saddles that... More
