“Great Horseback Riding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

The staff are very professional and friendly. The horses are well cared for and behave like old hands on the trail. We took the two hour ride which was great. You do not have to be an expert horseman to enjoy this.

“Must do!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

We booked the four hour ride, and it was spectacular! Since most people book the shorter one, this ended up being a private tour - very nice. Our guide, Virginia, was awesome and very knowledgeable. She was able to answer our questions about the plant life as well as the surrounding areas. The folks here take such phenomenal care of the horses - they are practically spoiled (c= On our ride, we pretty much got to choose where we wanted to go once we got to the general area. We explored a few of the newer trails, and got to see some of the local wildlife. We spotted hawks, rabbits, coyotes, and a few birds. Too cold for snakes when we went, so we didn't have to worry about that part.

“Highly Recommend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We enjoyed the 2 hour ride with a thoughtful and knowledgeable guide. I am an animal lover, so it was important that we selected a place that took special care of their horses. Not only are the horses well taken care of, but the outfitters are also involved in the horse rescue and rehabilitation program that was founded by one of their guides. The horses are gentle and well behaved. The ride was filled with beautiful scenery and I have to say, it was very therapeutic. I loved every minute of it and will visit Cave Creek Outfitters again if I am ever back in the area. After the ride, we were allowed to reward our horses with healthy treats.

“A gentle trail ride into the beauty of the Sonoran Desert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

I highly recommend the two-hour horseback trip with Cave Creek Outfitters. Our trail guide, Jeff, was the perfect cowboy storyteller, entertaining and enlightening us with stories about the conflicts here between the native Indians and early settlers, and teaching us about the different cactus and tree species and local wildlife. The horses are very gentle and clearly well cared for, and the ride is appropriate for beginners. It's a wonderful way to get out of the city and experience the Sonoran Desert.

We just enjoyed the 2 hour ride with Virginia as our guide. She really made the event exceptional! She was very knowledgable and friendly. The horses were very well behaved. We were able to go up around Granite Mountain with views and landscape.
