Not the typical "mule train" ride. This was the best ride I've had since growing up on a ranch in North Dakota. Amy was awesome and her ranch hand, sorry forgot his name, was very helpful and friendly. They matched us up with the right horses and Amy's instruction for those folks who haven't ridden before even helped me and... More

Amy did a great job. She was knowledgeable of the area & gave us a lot of freedom to spread out & actually ride, not just a nose to tail trail ride. There were different skill levels & Amy allowed us the freedom we enjoy & yet still helped the newbies without it being a hindrance & making sure they... More

Very trashy trail. Amy was about as friendly as a rattle snake, maybe she was having a bad day but they need to clean their mess up!

I apologize that your time was so unpleasant. There are 4,000 acres of land and we cant always monitor other peoples behaviors but we take pride in our land and do not like to see a trashy place either, this is the first time we have heard of this complaint. I have addressed this issue with Amy, I know this... More

If you have a cute girlfriend and want to go horseback riding do not take her here!!!! We had Jake as our guide and his flirtatious attempts, inappropriate questions and blatant disregard for the rest of the group has left me disgusted. Completely unprofessional. I would never recommend this place to any couple or anyone. (Sedona/Cottonwood)

I am regretful that your impression of my wrangler Jake was unsatisfactory, I have talked to him about the incident. This being said, I am confident that other customers appreciate his charm and personality. Thank you for your input. More

She showed a lot of patience with our austictic son who can be quite challenging at times! Our ride was fantastic and truely an... More

Took the 3 hour ride. We were looking for a more challenging ride, and we got it, at the Wickenburg location. We were able to trot, lope and even do a little galloping. Saw hawks, squirrel, geckos, quail, a coyote, deer, and vultures - even a gold mine! Want to do another ride with them. I did a lot of... More

This was a private sunset ride that left from the office/stables just north of Cottonwood right off of 89A. A 15 minute drive from west Sedona (we were staying at Casa Sedona).This was a great Sunset ride. The trail meanders through open range where you can see wild life and have wide views of the surrounding area. Halfway through the... More

Went for the two hour ride. Cowboy Joe was a great guide. He had knowledge of the area and other insights. Was great at guiding a first timer we had with us. Would use this company again and next time do the Sedona tour.

John David Taylor was our guide in Cottonwood/Sedona. While he did not provide us with much history of the area, he was very personable and entertaining. We enjoyed listening to his cowboy stories throughout his life and the 2 hours just flew by. We would definitely go back there again. John David....you are the best! :)
