Best horseback riding stable for kids, 12 and 9

We're spending six days in central Arizona. Two in Scottsdale at the FireSky, two at the Grand Canyon and two at the Inn at Eagle Mountain in Fountain Hills. Is there a good stable that will take us on an interesting ride near Eagle Mountain? Should we do our riding at the Grand Canyon and use our Phoenix time for other things (museums, botanical garden, zoo)? We are not experienced riders.. my kids just wanted to try it.

Thanks in advance for your help:)

There is also Saguaro Ranch at Saguaro Lake and their horseback trails are very great. It's also about 1.2 half from Eagle Mountain. We have a place in Fountain Hills and take our granddaughter to Saguaro Ranch frequently. It is hilly though, but very scenic. overlooking the lake. Also, Ft. McDowell, right beside Fountain Hills also offers horseback riding. Their trail goes through the Verde River and back by the petroglyph's/.
