Outside of our reservations not being written down and the gentleman asking us to reschedule and acting like it was an inconvenience all worked out. The tour guide is super knowledgeable and informative about Arizona. The Groupon deal was great!

Me and my other half really enjoyed our sunset horse ride. Beautiful scenery, lovely horses and very helpful guides! We were given the opportunity to meet and feed all the horses before we set off which was a really nice added bonus. Thank you so much everyone at spur cross stables!!

Spur Cross Stables, Cave Creek, Arizona: Saturday May 14. “Our party of three was led by experienced wrangler “Boot” and throughout the ride his local knowledge and interesting insight were matched by many amusing anecdotes. Our mounts were fit and friendly and the trail, through thousands of flowering cacti, offered great views of the local landscape. We had a great... More

Found Spur Cross Stables online and booked a 2 hour ride for myself and my aunt who was visiting from out of town. We were not disappointed at all. Our horses were amazing; it was like we didn't even have to do anything. They were so well behaved and made both of us feel so comfortable. Our guide was extremely... More

Our family has taken horseback rides at Spur Cross Stables for many years, and have thoroughly enjoyed every one! Their wranglers are the real deal, and know how to engage all riders from the youngest (ours is 5) to the oldest (me at 68)!! They share great stories and commentary on the high Sonoran desert during the ride. Highly recommended... More

My daughter, age 12, and I did the 3 hour ride. It was just us and our guide Boot. The horses were well behaved and seemed well cared for. The scenery was beautiful and it seemed to be untouched wilderness. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the environment and had lots of interesting narrative. My daughter has some trail riding...

Had a great trip with my family (husband and two children ages 7 and 10) they had never been on a horse before and the staff made them comfortable. Sue the lady who took us on the trail was very informative and answered all my kids questions. The scenery was great and the horses easy to ride. I would definitely... More

I first emailed asking a couple questions. I encountered a man named Lee.... He was short with me and not nice to deal with. I got the impression he was bothered that I dare ask questions and he had to answer. I called after not getting an answer as to if he had booked my ride and I reached him... More
