Houston's Ranch: Found recommendations for these folks Googling "horseback riding Tucson" when planning a horseback riding excursion on a recent visit to Tucson. Houston's is just off East Speedway about 2 miles from the 4 stop sign intersection. Look left for the windmill blades converted into a sign for the entrance road. You know you are at the right place... More

This was a great ride out into the desert. Kayla was great and her sidekick was very informative about the desert. The horses were well groomed and easily handled the varying terrain we rode through. I've been to some horse ranches that the horses were pretty stuck in there ways and never veered from the butt of the horse in... More

My husband and I enjoyed a private trail ride with Bobbi this past Thursday. It was a great experience for two "green horns" from New Hampshire. The horses were very sweet. The views were amazing. And Bobbi was great. It was a very fun and memorable experience. We would highly recommend it. Thank you Bobbi!

We enjoyed a nice morning ride in desert on horseback - Bobbi and her crew did a great job. We recommend this friendly horse loving farm.

Visited a friend and four of us went trail riding on the afternoon ride with Chris as our guide. Great time! The scenery was awesome, the horses were very nice much better than what you hear the "trail riding horses" are like. Would recommend this group to anyone experienced or not. All but one had ridden all of our lives,... More

The horses are nice & people are friendly. The location was awesome! Our group is only 5 adults and 1 child. We had a guide and a helper... Highly recommended! The guide is really nice, but she was very soft spoken. So I only heard may be 20% of what she said... so if you're information seeker, make sure you're... More

I researched this company based on the horse welfare and was very excited to be surrounded by caring handlers. The staff were friendly and knowledgable and Bobbi very much in charge and ensuring the best possible service. Views spectacular.

The location is beautiful, our wrangler- Kayla- was phenomenal, and the horses were sweet. Unfortunately, our trip was only "okay" due to the amount of people on our ride.There were twelve riders and three guides on the two-hour tour. This was annoying right away because once we were on the saddle, we had to sit and wait for over a... More

Beautiful well-cared for horses and experienced wranglers. We were lucky enough to have the ride and national park to ourselves. Kayla was our guide and she was personable and made the ride educational as well. Had lovely pictures taken along the way. We are in our 50's and have not ridden in years. We thoroughly enjoyed the ride.

Houston's Horseback Riding was a great experience for me and my family. The horses are well behaved and gentle to all. Instructors teach you how to ride the horse and how to properly guide it along the trail. The instructors are very kind and are great teachers. They give you a horse that is suitable for your size and also... More
