While vacationing in Mesa, AZ, a friend suggested we take a ride. We are always up for a horseback ride when we travel, and my wife is actually on a mission to ride a horse in every state, so we quickly agreed. Our friend took us to the OK Corral and we had one of the best riding experiences we've had anywhere.
Checking in was a breeze and everyone was genuinely friendly and welcoming. Our horses were freshly bathed and saddled and we were on the trail in short order. Our guide, Josh, was truly one of the top guides in all our experience, friendly and talkative, and well-versed in a variety of conversation topics, which ranged from horses to politics to desert flora to Arizona history to international travel.
We rode for about 45 minutes and stopped in Goldfield for lunch (another real treat!). After lunch we rode back to OK Corral and spent some time just visiting with the folks there. It turns out that a couple of the family members who run the stable are authors and we bought one of their books, as well, and had it autographed before we left.
I would highly and unreservedly recommend the OK Corral for any riders, novice through expert.
