A beautiful trip up the mountain all throughout the desert with cactuses all around! I went for a sunset trip, but ended up being the only one so they went completely at my pace. I'm a beginner and felt unbelievable comfortable thanks to my leaders Cameron and Joseph. Not sure what I would've done without them. Highly recommend!!

We arrived to the facility about 30 minutes before the ride and there was no direction given to us as there was a large group registering so we had to figure out their process. After registering, Ace (our guide) separated a rather large group of 18 or so, into 2 groups. The first group got on the trail about 15... More

8am ride was an epic, awesome, wonderful and joyful experience among the serenity of the pictirique nature. Our family had very little previous experience riding but felt very safe and relaxed while enjoying the views. Our leader, Brody, was very responsible, friendly and kind. The experience was my highlight of my spring break from teaching and left me happy all... More

We were six active senior women, including two who had never been on a horse before. I think they did an excellent job of matching us up to our horses. It's a family operation -- nice people. Two young sisters were our guides. Right now the desert is beautiful, with all kinds of flowers blooming, and the weather is mild.... More

We greatly enjoyed our experience. Our guides Hannah and Becca were kind and knowledgeable. The horses were great, and the trail was relatively easy. We did an afternoon two-hour ride. The scenery was gorgeous and we got plenty of great photos. The location is quite a drive from Phoenix (over an hour) but the experience was worthwhile.

My mom, younger sister and I went to the White Tank Stables in Phoenix, Arizona branch. When we arrived, the only person there was Amanda, our guide. She put my sister on her horse first. Then, as she brought mine over, she told me that the horse was stubborn and would do what she could to not go on the... More

Beatiful views with desert flora and moutains. Extremly peaceful and relaxing ride. If looking for an exciting horse back riding with trotting or faster ride, look else where. This 2hr trip is all at walking pace and is great for people with little or no experience riding. Horse are well mannered and our tour guide stopped and took pictures of... More
