What a great authentic experience. We did a 1 hour ride at 5pm. Horses were gentle, responsive and clean. Ranch was well kept and clean. Guide was super. He offered to take photos of us, gave us information about the desert forest we rode through and was extremely personable. We saw a small bobcat, jackrabbits, a coyote, and a Gila... More

Beautiful morning spent on a two hour Trailride. This WAY exceeded my expectations!! It was about a 30 minute ride from Scottsdale to get to the location but very enjoyable and scenic. Once there, we were given two horses, Ty and Annabelle, that were perfect for both my 17 year old daughter and myself as we are novice riders. Our... More

Cave Creek Outfitters were recommended by our hotel in Scottsdale. They are about a 30 minute drive out to the Sonoran Desert and they are a first class outfitter. Our guides Ryan and Cher were terrific. They set up our group with horses specific to everyone's riding ability and were extremely patient with some of the more novice riders. Once... More

I went for a 2 hour ride over Memorial Weekend and I had an amazing experience with Pam as my wrangler. I was the only client to have booked at that time so I ended up having a private for the price of a cheaper group ride. Some other places would have called me to cancel or asked me to... More

I planned the sunset ride for my girlfriend and 6 friends while in Scottsdale for her bachelorette party and we loved every minute of it... until the end! The staff was great, super friendly and helpful as this was unfamiliar territory for most of us. We all really liked the guide we had, he was extremely informative and gave a... More

Rubin our wrangler was amazing and so helpful. I would definitely go again and request Rubin to be our wrangler. A two hour ride along with a meal for... More

If you've ever taken a horse back tour you won't find anything new. Basically just sitting in a line of horses that follow one another closely while walking. Nothing particularly exciting, though that's likely what most people want. The attraction is seeing the desert and its scenery. We saw a couple of coyotes and white tailed hawks in our 1... More
