My friend an I had a fabulous 2 hour ride in the Tonto Forest by Saguaro Lake. The horses were well maintained and trained. Beautiful scenery along the trail. Our guide Chris was great and made sure we had a good time! We will definitely be back.

We rode in the pines near Mormon Lake (news flash...the lake dried up in 1980s!) and it was AWESOME! Our guide was Paul who is a REAL cowboy as he wore leather chaps, rolled his own Bugle brand cigarettes, but abstained smoking during the ride upon our request. You will not ride through any water as to my horror the... More

We went on the 1 hour trail ride with Chris and Amber. The horses are gentle and sweet. Our guide and Wrangler were great. They were easy to talk to and very knowledgable of the horses and their personality. The ride was amazing. The terrain varied throughout the ride which was fun. Our trail weaved back and forth from the... More

We had gone once before and i had fallen in love with their horse; pickles, so we made a special request for her to accompany us again.

My son (6 years) and I went on an hour long trail ride with Grace as our guide. My son was really scared at first but Grace reassured him and when the ride was over he didn't want to be done. The horse was very calm despite his nerves and it was definitely a success. We cannot wait to go... More

While staying at Mormon Lake Lodge, we took the half hour trail ride on a beautiful Sunday Morning with Sally, Suzi, Jimmy & Luke (our horses). Molly was our expert guide and very friendly. Beautiful views and great for beginners. Reservations can be made online, telephone or in person.

We went horseback riding here to celebrate my birthday. The horses and staff were wonderful! But when we got out about half way on our 2 hr ride we were surrounded by lightning. It was very nerve racking, BUT our guides kept us calm and instructed us how to keep our horses calm. We made it down the mountain safely,... More
