We had a great time at the ranch and on the ride !! Our wrangler tour guide, Rusty, was excellent and taught us a ton about the desert area, cactus facts and animal life. We returned to a nice lunch and spent another 2 hours playing cowboy games in their old town. I would highly recommend to anyone. Ask for... More

A fun horse ride, shooting pistols, bows and arrows, and throwing tomahawks made for a fun filled day with the kids (ages 13, 10, and 6). Ruben and Brie were our guides and they were so good with the kids, even my 6 year old. The kids thought it was the best part of our vacation by far. So glad... More

My four granddaughters, ages ten through fourteen, and I went on a private horseback ride at Canyon Creek Ranch. Although the city girls had no experiance with horses, our wrangler, BZ, made them them feel comfortable. The horses are gentle and know the routine. This was much more than only a horse ride. There were refreshments and some hilarious surprises... More

We just had the most fun time with Rusty at Western Destinations on a recent Friday. Rusty took us out on a jeep excursion where we saw beautiful desert countryside and learned so much about all of the plants and animals native to the region. We then shot skeet with both 20 and 12 gauge shot guns down a gorgeous... More

We just got home from our Spring Break vacation in Arizona. Western Destinations was our favorite activity by far. We are from Nebraska and have our own horses. It was nice to be out in our element with horses and nature. The trail ride was pretty and informational. Rusty took my daughters on a jeep tour. Then he took us... More

A jeep excursion was on our bucket list and let me tell you, it was a amazing day!!! We had Rusty as our guide (Cowboy) we had the best day. Learning to shoot/bow/throw could not have asked for a better day. Loved the personal/private tour. WE WILL BE BACK

CHRIS IS AWESOME!!!! Super funny, educational and helpful. Made my daughter and I feel special on the trip. Well worth the drive and money to get the private tour that western destinations offers. They really take care of you and offer much more than the regular horse tours. THANKS CHRIS and Western Destinations!!! Jamie and Nora

My 9 year old son and I had a fantastic day today with Rubin and Bree. My son had never been riding, and was a little bit nervous. I hadn't ridden since I was very young. No worries, though, we were in good hands. The horses were well-trained and sweet. Rubin and Bree provided great feedback on "how" to ride... More
