I booked this as one of the 40 things we wanted to do to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Picked the place after reading trip advisor reviews. Bobbi was out at a funeral so we had her daughter Casey as our guide. We were the only two, and she selected kilo and Carmen as our horses. To say we were... More

Coming from England we booked the trek via the internet and it went very smoothly. Bobbi and her team were so welcoming and friendly. We are not very experienced riders but we were made to feel right at home. Before you set off on the trek it is stressed how important it is to take sufficient quantities of water and... More

My family and I went on the sunset ride in July and it was great! We arrived early and were able to peruse the grounds and see the many horses, cows and even donkeys, on the property. 7 of us went on the ride with 3 guides and it was fantastic! Horses were very calm, well taken care of and... More

What a rewarding experience! My Granddaughter and I had the most amazing evening ride with our guide and horses. One that will be remembered. Our guide was very knowledgable and us a wealth of knowledge about the desert. She was very understanding about my medical problem and helped me a great deal. I must thank her for all she did....

We paid $60 a piece for a 2-hour sunset ride that ended up being just the two of us. That was great in and of itself because to get a private ride is more expensive, and we ended up getting that private ride at the group rate because no one else came along that night. I had ridden before but... More

For the third time, we have had an enjoyable evening at Houston's. The staff is very accommodating. Bobbi the owner is great. And the horses are well behaved. This can easily be the highlight of your trip to Tucson.

Had a fantastic time out on the trail with my wife Loraine. Owner Bobbi and her staff looked after us from start to finish. We had lovely horses to ride and thoroughly enjoyed our two-hour ride through the stunning Sonoran Desert in deepest Arizona. Superb value for money and an outstanding way of exploring classic desert terrain way down in... More

I recommend this location to anyone. This was my first time horseback riding. The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable. Very helpful for a first time rider. You get a great view of the desert and mountains. Tour takes 2 hours.

Our daughter who is 14 with Down's Syndrome loves horses and this was her 2nd time riding. The staff stayed engaged with her in conversation, encouraged her in proper handling of the horse. She did great and we were so amazed by the entire experience!

We scheduled a ride that included a 3 year old and they were very understanding and accommodating to us where other stables weren't. Then we went to the wrong stables and were extremely late. We arrived an hour after our scheduled ride and again they were understanding and very very accommodating. Each trail guide was professional and friendly, talking to... More
