My husband was very nervous but Matt helped him relax. We did 1 hour tour and it was just long enough. Horses were well tempered and trail was beautiful.

Hey Mrs. Quinn, I'm not sure, so you'll need to contact them. We rode with Mike. Here's the phone number: 480 331 7893. Along with trip advisor, MD ranch is also on Groupon and Yelp. Hope this is helpful.
