Houston's Horseback Riding was a great experience for me and my family. The horses are well behaved and gentle to all. Instructors teach you how to ride the horse and how to properly guide it along the trail. The instructors are very kind and are great teachers. They give you a horse that is suitable for your size and also... More

We love this place - it was a repeat visit for us. Two hour trail ride through saguaro national park is beautiful, guides are great, and price is reasonable. As my teenager said, "we need to come here every time we are in Tucson!"

All of us kids, in-laws, and grandkids in town for the holidays made for a 15-person group. Bobbi and her team of employees and volunteers put us at ease and none of us, not even the kids, had any troubles riding as inexperienced as we were. Granted, the horses were all very well trained and docile to begin with. A... More

It's turned into a Christmas tradition to go horseback riding on or around the holidays, since my mom and dad moved to Arizona a few years back. Their latest find has been Houston's Horseback Riding. Being from downtown Minneapolis, we take every opportunity at escaping into the peaceful, quiet and tranquil areas of the corners of the earth. This place... More

We called the day of and were pleasantly surprised there was room for two on a 2:30 desert ride. My 7-year-old son and I had a fabulous time riding Marty and Kilo. The horses are well trained and obviously well cared for. I appreciated the emphasis on safety and the informative banter on the trail. Houston's is a family business... More

Bobbi and her crew couldn't have been any nicer or more accommodating to our group of 8 riders, ranging in age from 8 to 52 years old. Even with the inclement weather, it was still a lovely ride through the Saguaro National Park. Very picturesque. The horses were awesome and each a perfect fit for every one. Bobbie, you and...

My wife and I took the morning ride (9 A.M.), it lasted for approximately 2 hours. We wound through trails on the Saguaro national park. We had Bobbi Huston herself (the owner ) as our trail guide. Bobbi is an awesome guide. The horses were specially suited to our abilities. My horse "Cinco" was almost "automatic". He was bomb proof,... More

My family has owned property and horses in Tucson for over 50 years. I have rode in the Tanque Verde wash and Saguaro National Park many times. Every horse I have rode at Houstons was well mannered, in great condition, sized accordingly to my needs. Owners live on site and are willing to greet and speak with everyone. I always... More
