Every time we have have guests in town we take them out to Spur Cross Stables for a beautiful desert trail ride. The trails are scenic, with fabulous views. The animals are very well cared for and Lee and Rhonda are very generous hosts. I would recommend this stable to everyone, all riding levels.

Beautiful desert ride. Very professional guide Amanda took us on a 1.5 hour ride through scenic trail. Trail is narrow but horses are well trained and sturdy. Definitely recommend when visiting the area. Well worth it and great fun!

beautiful desert experience and tons of stimuli for those with eyes open. No more risk of being attacked and sporting an arrow out of your back on the way home, although plenty of evidence of the ancients still remain strewn across the ground.
Keep your hands out of the bushes and the Mohave and western diamond back rattlesnakes will leave you alone.
Mtn' Lions, bobcats, coyotes, badgers, snakes, skunks, rabbits, round tailed squirrels, antelope squirrels. javelina, an occasional junenile black bear, zone tailed hawks, harris hawks, coopers hawks, redtailed hawks and a golden eagle or two all compete for a living in this area and frequent the only water course in the creek tinajas.

I would definitely recommend taking a trail ride with these folks. We just went today, and since it's the "off season", it was just my husband and I, the guide, and another employee who was working with one of the horses-- basically a private ride. We took the hour ride at 9am, before it got too hot. The scenery is beautiful and the guide pointed out different plants and geology, as well as an abandoned gold mine. After the ride, we fed carrots (provided by the stables) to the horses. I would absolutely ride with them again, and some day would like to take their day-long ride to see petroglyphs.

I recommend Spur Cross Stables for a family ride around cactus-filled hills and washes, with an old mine-shaft along the way. Our horses were appropriate for our riding experience & comfort level and didn't give us any trouble. Our guide Diane was responsible, smart and friendly, and the rest of the crew was great as well.
