I was introduced to The Hitchen Post Stable by boarding my horse starting in April by May I was guiding trail rides! So what started out as business ended in Friends! I love the staff and all the animals are very well taking care of! Happy horses make a happy ride! I am a breast cancer survivor and found much needed peace at Hitching Post. I loved our clints and I know that all the staff feels the same way! What ever you are looking for, you'll it at The Hitchen Post! The Hitchen Post Stables is what every trail ride should be like! Beautiful canyons , trails, and the views are breath taking!!! I miss all of my friends and will visit Hitchen Post in the years to come.
Thank you Hitchen Post for helping me find peace and happiness! I no longer work or board my horse here, I moved. However, as a former customer and employee I have strong feels of love and fun to last a life time!

My husband and I took a sunset trail ride with our guide, Pete. He was a lot of fun and made us very comfortable. The people at the stable love what they do and the horses were gentle and well cared for.

We took our three and six year-old granddaughters for a ride here, while on our family vacation. The staff took great care in making it a fun experience for the girls, including taking them around to the stables to see young colts. The cost was fair and reasonable and the overall experience was quite positive. The girls wanted to return multiple times during our stay in the area.

I took my developmentally disabled adult brother, who fancies himself to be John Wayne Jr, for his first horseback ride at Hitchin' Post Stables while on our Arizona vacation. Having had a bad experience on a horse myself, 30 years ago, I swore I'd never climb on one again, however, I'd do (almost) anything for my brother. Our guide, Rebecca, was fabulous. She chose our horses carefully, was extremely kind and accommodating with my brother, who does not follow directions very well. At one point, when he started to sing (as only he can do) Home on the Range, she joined in with him. She took photos on her cell phone of us and sent them to me within a hour of our leaving. It was such a great experience for both of us. I am extremely pleased and would go there again, were we to be back in the area. Thank you Rebecca and Hitchin' Post Stables.

Our girls went on their first trail ride and loved every minute of it. The staff was great and very accommodating for our little family. We are looking forward to the sleigh ride around Christmas this year. :)
