Had a good ride. Interesting stepping up and down over the rocks. A little disappointed - the web page says 2 hr rides are a lot by the river and through the river but we did not because of the high water levels. Enjoyed it and good view but not exactly what we had in mind.

My 16 year old daughter wanted to horseback ride since when we were in Scottsdale last week for spring break/spring training. I researched the options in the area and decided on Saguaro Lake Ranch Stable because of the scenery and the price. Most of the other stables seemed to only go on dusty dirt roads and have the occasional cactus... More

This ranch is wonderful. Rancher Tom and Rancher Sophia we excellent guides. They matched you up with appropriate horses. Kids wore helmets for safety. The ride was very enjoyable! Slow paced and very controlled. I would definitely recommend it.

At first, were reluctant to spend $49 for the 1 hour (x4), but it ended up being an unforgettable experience. The view was breathtaking, at the base of the bluff and through the desert. Crossing the river was our favorite part. My 10 year old was reluctant to start, but our guide Tom took her horse's reign and led her... More

This is the place I wished I could go when I was a child. Here they had everything for children and adults. My youngest child (7) had the most fun on a horse she has ever had! My oldest child (12) had lots of fun too! Everyone was very nice at the ranch, and the view was beautiful. We are... More

"Sofia" was our guide on the 2 hour ride in the saguaro hills near the saguaro lake and dam. The horses were well trained and easy to ride, going very slow into areas we could look out over the desert and the lake. Beautiful setting. Sofia was a great guide in telling us about the area and just a great... More

We loved this tour so much we went back a second time. The first year we went, our guide was so knowledgeable about the plants and area and history, she was incredible. The second year our guide wasn't so great, but it was still a very enjoyable trip. Saguara Lake Ranch really respects the area that they are operating out... More

Taking my husband and son on their first horseback ride ever was a little nerve wracking but the staff and horses were exceptionally prepared. We chose the 90 minute ride and we're thrilled with the walk thru the Salt River and the vistas at the top. The staff were very attentive and had lots of strategies for the first time... More
