Cher was very knowledgable of the area and was very accommodating. We took the 1 hr ride at 6pm which allowed us plenty of time. It was a bit warm however, there was a bit of a breeze which allowed us to enjoy the scenery. We stopped to take a few photos along the way. Cher took her time and... More

Our guide Ruben was friendly and professional, and shared many interesting insights about the surrounding plants and animals. We encountered prairie dogs, jackrabbits, thorny lizards and even a coyote during our 2-hour evening ride, and enjoyed the lovely scenery. One note to those who have not ridden horseback in a while (or ever): You might find the 1-hour ride to... More

We booked an hours trail in May during our honeymoon stay in Scottsdale, Rubén was our guide and was brilliant really knowledgable and fun, it is so special to ride in the sunshine away from the general hustle and bustle... A great experience - highly recommended will definitely go again next time we are in Scottsdale....thanks Rubén.

My family did the one hour morning ride. We have little (or no) experience horse riding, so the ride was perfect for us. Our guide (Landon, I believe) was very helpful with my kids, making them feel at ease. The riding area was beautiful, and the horses looked healthy. Recommended!

This is a lovely stables settled in the Cave Creek park. just off the carefree highway. Expect to pay $6 to get into the Park but then park up for free right outside the stables. Plenty of horses mean they're not tired from working all day. We went out on the Sunset ride for an hour across to the far... More

A fist time ride for our family of (3) and it was nothing short of amazing. Everyone was friendly, kind and fun! The horses were amazing--especially Cowboy, Fred and Holli(ster). Was the highlight of our trip. We'll be back!

This was a wonderful horse ride! I enjoyed the hour and a half ride on Squirrel! The staff is very well educated on AZ and the desert plants. Meaghan was very friendly and made me feel really welcome! This was my first horseback ride in the desert and in Arizona. The horses seem really well behaved and taken care of.... More

Walking in was very smooth and got on our horses within 5 minutes of walking in. Cowboy and Cowgirl boots were offered and I recommend taking them because they protect you from prickly brush on the trails. They also offer helmets and strawhats for sun purposes. Beautiful horses that were trained and love to eat brush and may veer off... More
