We went riding on Aug. 31 with our 2 daughters and Todd. Booking the trip over the phone was easy with the owner Jim; he was also very pleasent and accomodating. We all had a terrific time. Todd's love, knowledge of horses and ranching, and his dedication to his work was obvious. He was also extremely courteous and did everything possible to see that we had a nice visit. I would highly recommend coming out and seeing for yourself. If you have kids (even if they are young with no riding experience) they will love the place. We also had some time to see and pet the younger horses in the various stables and learned quite a bit about them. There is also a large trout and bass pond and beautiful panoramic views as far as the eye can see. We hope to go riding again there in the near future. It was the highlight of our trip to Arizona.

I took my niece who was visiting from Pennsylvania on a 2-hour trail ride with Pot A Gold Stables over Labor Day weekend. Our guide was Todd, who made a ride into an educational adventure. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the desert environment, and offered insights and information throughout the ride. Afterwards Todd and Pistol Pete took us to visit with the foals and their mamas - truly an experience for my niece.

Todd and Pete helped make this auntie seem pretty cool! Thanks so much!

P.S. Bring water bottles - they have carriers on the saddles.

We went with Pot a Gold based off of reviews. Booking was easy and Jim was very friendly. We chose the 3 hour ride through the Mayer Desert, as we wanted to ride for an extended period. We were given TODD as a guide who absolutely KICKED [--]! He was extremely knowledgeable, personable and easy to get along with. A true expert outdoors man with extensive experience with horses. We were supposed to ride through the Agua Fria river, however it was more like "Agua Nada", due to the time of year. Our horses were also characters of their own. I would definitely like to go back in a different season, and even ride a horse into, or through, significant water. I tried, but Willow just didn't want to jump into the pond. Pot a Gold definitely lived up to expectation. Thanks! Kirk & Jess. Aurora, IL.

Pot of Gold Ranch is a very cool place to visit. We took the 4 hour horseback trail ride and it was so enjoyable. Luke was our guide and he was so knowledgable about the area. He also had a great sense of humor and kept us entertained throughout the whole ride. We stopped at lunchtime in a very quiet and shady place where there was a cottonwood tree that was so massive that it would take 6 tree huggers to surround! The horses were so tame and sweet as well that it made for a very stress free ride for us. We were unexperienced riders and received instruction before and on the trail ride. We will definitely go back!

April 19th - Luke and Pam took us on a beautiful ride through the ranch, told us about the plants and animals that called it home and provided a memorable first-ride for us. The horses were mellow and well cared for, the guides were friendly and entertaining and made us feel like at home on a horse.

Thank you so much Pam and Luke! The only thing we would have done differently is to book a longer ride!

We will definitely be returning to Pot A Gold stables on our next trip to Arizona. This was the highlight of our vacation.
