We had a great ride after a good deal of rain last winter, so we even got to ride right through some "washes." The guides were very relaxed, and so good for beginners and experienced riders too. The setup is quite organized, even though it might not appear that way right when you arrive. Have fun!

We came from NJ and took our 7 year old on the trail ride. Our daughter has Down syndrome and rides horses regularly at home. The staff here is AMAZING!!! They were so patient with my daughter who, in the middle of the ride, tried to test some boundaries. The staff and other riders in our group were incredibly patient.... More

My sister, a friend, and I went on a 2 hour trail ride at Houston's. The horses were calm and relaxed, our trail guide was friendly and informative, and the scenery was fantastic! We were looking for a relaxing ride through Saguaro National Park-East and found it at Houston's!

Whether you are a first timer at horse riding or a seasoned pro Houston's Horse Back Riding is the best in Tucson. I'm a seasoned rider, had my own horse for many years and have ridden since I was 4 and I thoroughly enjoyed my many experiences at Bobbi's. The horses are phenomenal, well-broke but not "dull" by any means!... More

My family of four (dad, mom, 7-year-old daughter, and 4-year-old son) had such an amazing experience at Houston's!! It was a fun, informative, and beautiful ride through the National Park. Everyone was just so friendly and helpful from the moment we pulled into the parking area. The kids were so excited that they got to ride their very own horse.... More

Houston's really caters to the family. They really match the horse to one's riding experience. I was there with by grown children and grandchildren who are 6 and 8. Everyone had their own horse. The little ones each had a wrangler keeping their horse in tow. Everyone wore helmets that were provided. The ride was for two hours through Saguaro... More

Wow, we loved it. We did the 2 hour ride and even though we are newbies, they were very welcoming. We went into Saguaro NP on very gentle horses. Our guides were great and it was also very informative. E-mail contact was very friendly and prompt. Great service. Would certainly do this again!!
