Took my 13 year old daughter on her first ever horseback riding experience. We had such a great time, and Rich, our guide, was fantastic. We rode the horses on a trail in a canyon filled with cacti and all sorts of nature. Each horse came equipped with a holder for our water bottles. Rich took us on the trails for about an hour, and then we boarded a Jeep and headed over to an adorable old west town where we had some cold beverages and tried ax throwing, pistol shooting, and archery. Overall, a great family adventure and well worth the price. We will definitely come again on our next visit to Arizona!

This was by far the best paid horse riding experience I have ever had. I have rode at many other horse ranches but these horses were so calm and responded so well. This was my grandson's first ride alone at 6 years old and he could handle his horse well. Rusty, our wrangler was such a good guide. He was so patient and I learned more about the dessert in that 2 hour ride than I ever knew before. Then we shot the pistols, axe throwing and bow and arrow target practice. The whole set up was a great experience.

We had so much fun horseback riding, axe throwing, pistol shooting and shooting bow and arrow. This was an amazing experience. The horseback riding was on an amazing trail. Rusty was wonderful. He was so friendly, funny, and so very knowledgeable. He taught us a lot about the wildlife and plants in the area. The old town was so fun to explore. We had a blast learning how to throw and axe, shoot a pistol and shoot a bow and arrow. I would recommend this place to anyone going to this area.

Had a blast going on horseback, pistol shooting and axe throwing. Learned about edible cactus, and which snakes to watch out for. We had an awesome guide named Rusty, he was very friendly and knew his stuff.
