At first, all four of us were not sure of the three hours we would spend on horseback, but once we started, time flew by! Authentic southwestern scenery and hospitality was welcoming by our hosts, Marge and Ron. Horses were perfect fully matched with our individual riding experiences. An added treat was the harmonica serenade by our knowledgeable guide, Ron.... More

My husband and I have just recently returned from our three hour wine tasting ride with Ron Izzo, owner of the Arizona Horseback Experience. I would urge anyone who likes horses and is travelling in the Tucson area to take a ride with this company. You will undoubtedly get a true taste of cowboy county. It's the real deal! The... More

Two novice riders enjoyed a romp through gorgeous scenery. Valery was so patient and very friendly. We lamented not being able to do an overnight ride. Valery gave us such a wonderful memory to kickstart our celebration of retirement. Thank you for a dream come true.

Valerie was our guide and she was very informative, knowledgeable and personable. The ride was so enjoyable and relaxing as was the wine tasting...We... More

We did a 3 day, 2 night wilderness camping trip with Ron, and a 10 year old and a 65 year old. This was a real wilderness experience and it's very difficult to find this experience anywhere in Arizona. Most places are set up for busloads of tourists coming through and at best you get to ride to a pre-set... More

We arrived a little nervous but there was no reason to be, Val our guide was fantastic, we managed to mount and dismount in a very short time. Then we were off, it was a brilliant afternoon one we will never... More

Nestled near the beautiful Coronado National Forest, Ron and Marge's well-run horse outfitter put together a wonderful 3-day trip into the Huachuca Mountains. The strong, well trained horses were a real pleasure. As was Ron (wrangler & owner), who also really knows how to cook. A great balance of outdoor adventure, caring for the horses, and of course learning to... More

This was a highlight of my business trip to Tucson! While on business we were lucky enough to get a couple days off and we found Arizona Horseback on the web and I am so glad we did! After the beautiful drive out to the ranch we were greeted by some excellent people. The owners are amazing folks and they... More
