I booked our family ride (me, my hubby and 2 kids (7 & 9)) three weeks prior to our trip to Tucson by the suggestion of the concierge at our hotel. I booked the evening ride knowing my family and I are not morning people and thinking the sunset would be a sight to never be forgotten. My boys had... More

Our family of three horse novices took a 2hr evening ride and had a great time. The owner and staff were extremely helpful and experienced. The horses seemed healthy and were generally well-behaved. The ride was mostly in a saguaro park, so there were many breathtaking views of cactuses at sunset. We would definitely go with Houston's if we book... More

My mom, 71, my daughter, 5, and I, 37, had an amazing ride on through the western desert. The staff were kind, caring and informative. We brought up the back of the 10 person ride (2 staff + 8 riders). Kylie was very knowledgable about the land and thoroughly enjoyed her job. Sierra was a great leader and was very... More

We went on the 5:00pm ride through the Saguaro National Park. We arrived a bit early and it was nice to talk to the guides as they prepared the horses. They were all very friendly and had excellent social skills. The horses are clean and well cared for, with good equipment also. It is very rustic with no tourist amenities... More

We LOVED the trail ride at Houston's. We arrived to a beautiful ranch and were greeted by friendly staff. They helped our family (two adults and 3 kids ages - 4, 7, 9) get set up. Our youngest kids rode on their own, but had lead-lines to the 'wranglers'. The wranglers were GREAT - two young gals who were super... More

Bobby Houston led us on a 2 hour ride through the beautiful Saguaro National Park. The horses were healthy and engaged. Bobby is very knowledgable and shared little tidbits of knowledge throughout the ride. I recommend Houstons to everyone, whether a native or visitor.

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
