Friendly staff, beatiful horses. Myself, my wife and my two kids(13 and 11) had a great time, it was our first time riding and could not have picked a better place to do it.

My daughter and I are taking lessons and having the time of our lives. We have no criticisms of this stable. Highly recommend it.

We had a really nice sunset ride. I think our leader's name was Charlie - she was friendly and provided a lot of info on the flora and fauna we passed. The horses were well behaved and well looked after. A great western riding experience in saguaro national park.

Houston stables boast such peaceful serene ambiance in its farm setting. It sits in a riparian area next to Tanque Verde Wash and Saguaro National Park East. Houston's wonderfully fit, well behaved and healthy horses have access to wonderful scenic rides right out the back door. The owners and staff offer up such kind southwestern hospitality that makes the whole... More

I surprised my boyfriend with the 2-hour horseback trail ride for Christmas and I certainly do not regret the decision. Despite the weather being very cold that day (36 degrees F), visibility being low and some snow still sitting on the ground, we headed out on time at 9:30am. I grew up in the Tucson desert, but the trail ride... More

We were a group of 4 including two 9-year-old horse virgins. The horses and staff were amazing: so patient, helpful, and encouraging. This was the highlight and most talked-about adventure of our Tucson visit. Our guide was Charlie and she did a great job of describing the plants we saw, telling AZ history, and encouraging the kids' fascination with horses.... More

We took our young grandaughers ( age 8 and 6) on the 2 hour trail ride. Excellent choice. They were very good about picking out just the ride horses for each person and making sure you were adequately mounted with right size helmets etc. Adults can choose whether to wear a helmet or not. The leaders of the trail ride... More

Went on a trail ride in the afternoon yesterday. The horses were great, the view was very pretty. The guides were awesome too. There was a 10 year old, 13 and 15 year old kids and everyone enjoyed.
