“Maybe if you are a tourist...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Rides in my opinion in unsafe weather. Horses are just OK. Some trail guides are teens I've seen.
We've been on lesson rides too. Would not do that again there. Don't remember exact year or month. Maybe a tourist who doesn't ride would find it fun. It is a beautiful area.

Check it out nothing like riding a horse in the desert and the views of the mountains are absolutely amazing. Don't miss it!

“Great way to see the desert.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

My girlfriend and I went on a 2.5 hour twilight ride. We started at about 6 and went till dusk. Charlie was our guide and she was awesome. The horses were great and very responsive to direction. The desert was beautiful and the weather cooled down around dusk. Houston's was accomodating and very very nice. We paid 60$ a person, and I would have paid 100$ a person for the experience we got. Houston's is a must see must do if you're ever in Tucson. Thanks Houston's, we'll be back.

“Return Visit, Just as Good as the First Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

We enjoy horseback riding when we are on vacation and have gone to many different places. We have seen some good ones and some not so good. Houston's is certainly the best. The people are very nice and helpful. The horses were well behaved and the scenery was beautiful. Just like last time, we certainly recommend this place.

“Fun horseback riding experience in amazing scenic desert.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

I took my 3 teenagers to Houston's today to ride horses for 2 hours. They all had a good time and enjoyed the desert scenery. The ranch area was intriguing with tons of old farm antiques to marvel at. The property was surprisingly shaded very well, with tons of trees everywhere. The horses all seemed quite content and well cared for. The staff was also very pleasant.
