Our oldest son (13) wanted to ride a horse in the desert like a real cowboy might have done...So that's what we did! We had a group of 6 including Grandma(70) and Grandpa. Our 10 yr. old son was a little hesitant, he had never been on a horse before. Bobbi, Kaci, and Charlie made us all at ease. Matching us all with perfect horses. Even though it was a hot day, 93 degrees, I told the boys we should wear jeans just in case we bump up against any sticker bushes while riding. Happy we did that, the trail is natural washes and sometimes you get kind-of close to prickly plants, but no one got poked on our ride. We got to see Jack rabbits, pack rat nests, hawks and the beautiful Saguaro Desert. Bring a water bottle, one with a loop of some kind to hang on the horn of the saddle. If you can't find one, they will make one for a water bottle out of some twine. The trail is dusty, now I know why cowboys had bandanas. The horses are great, almost like they are on cruise control. It made for a really nice ride. You get your monies worth, it's about an hour out, and an hour back. I will say we were all a little sore and walked a little slower back to the mini van, but we were smiling all the way! Were still talking about how much we enjoyed it. One thing, I wish the windmill was a little more colorful, it's hard to spot against the desert background. We passed it the first time, but spotted it on the way back. Give yourself plenty of time to find it. If I were a local, I would have my kids in Bobbi's horse camp for sure!
