I can't say enough great things about this tour company, from the first phone call to the end of the ride, everything was top notch. We booked a 5 1/2 hour ride in January 2013 for our April trip. We initially booked, and then shortly after, I talked to our personal guide, Joseph. He questioned us closely about what we wanted from our experience, as you can endurance ride, or ride at a more leisurely pace. We chose the latter. We met down in the Cave Creek area one lovely morning, and took a quick truck and trailer ride with Joseph to the trail head. Our horses were endurance type Arabs (Jasper and Ariel), both horses were fit and mannerly. All tack and equipment was in good repair, and well fitting. Joseph made sure we had helmets if we wished, and carefully tied our jackets, water, and other supplies into carry bags. Much attention was paid to everything being safe. The ride itself was gorgeous, from stream crossings, up steep hill sides, finally up on top of the mountains to view and explore the Native ruins while we had lunch, and took a riding break. Many plants were in Spring bloom, Joseph knew almost all the names of everything we saw. We talked and laughed, and talked about horses, farming, and life experiences all day. We left for our ride back up to Sedona pretty tired, but entirely satisfied by the days' events.
This was the best day of our entire AZ trip. I HIGHLY recommend Windwalker Expeditions to all riders-NO nose to tail stuff here, and it is worth EVERY penny!!
