Matt and Becca, the managers, are great! They have put together the kindest, most knowledgeable guides I have found. If you have the time, splurge and do the 2.5 hour Quartz Trail Ride. Tons of amazing geologic history.

Good morning ride through the desert, while being educated by our guide. Not much of a horse rider myself, but felt very comfortable on the horse that was provided.

We recently had a company retreat in Carefree and were looking for some fun activities and team building events. I was lucky enough to find Cave Creek Outfitters. Our team signed up for a horse ride, cowboy games and cowboy dinner package. We started off with an awesome horse ride through the desert. The timing was perfect as it was... More

I had a great ride with Cave Creek Outfitters a few days ago! While my husband was in a conference in Scottsdale, I treated myself to a two hour morning ride and I loved every minute. Everyone was extremely friendly and made me feel at home at the ranch immediately. The ranch is just my kind of place - not... More

I booked this outfitter on what they advertised on line. I'm aware that I did go during the slower season but thought maybe they would make some adjustments for that. Average stable/coral area, looks like they take care of their horses, but I've seen better. We booked the two hour ride which I thought would be plenty (we actually were... More

Dear Beamster, I would like to address your visit with us, as we take very much pride in our customer service. We do our very best to deliver what we advertise, there are times that our horses may push a bit faster and get back to the barn a few minutes sooner, and other times when they may get back... More

We truly enjoyed this outing. When we arrived, it was a quick minute to sign the waver and we were up on the horses and away. No waiting around, the horses were ready to go. The group was small so our guide, Shawn was always in earshot for questions. The horses were sweet and gentle. The landscape is beautiful in... More

Two adults, one 13 year old and one 11 year old in my party did the 1-hour ride. At 30 minutes into the ride the guide gave us the option of extending it into 2 hours. Our guide Jeff was a 40-year resident of Arizona and provided great information about the desert and surrounding areas including some fun history. The... More

What a great authentic experience. We did a 1 hour ride at 5pm. Horses were gentle, responsive and clean. Ranch was well kept and clean. Guide was super. He offered to take photos of us, gave us information about the desert forest we rode through and was extremely personable. We saw a small bobcat, jackrabbits, a coyote, and a Gila... More

Beautiful morning spent on a two hour Trailride. This WAY exceeded my expectations!! It was about a 30 minute ride from Scottsdale to get to the location but very enjoyable and scenic. Once there, we were given two horses, Ty and Annabelle, that were perfect for both my 17 year old daughter and myself as we are novice riders. Our... More
