Very scenic horseback ride through the the desert & saguro cacti surrounded by mountains. Our guide was very experienced & she is the 1st person to teach me the correct way to ride a horse. Made a big difference!

“The world looks better when you're on a horse!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2013

At first I was a little scared to get on the horse, but Sarah and Justin made a point to introduce each of us to our horse as we mounted it and then they told us a little bit about each and the best way to handle him. The guides gave us riding tips as we rode, and their lighthearted humor helped dispel any remaining fear. We knew we were in good hands! We headed out on the trail and the scenery was breathtaking! The sky was a beautiful blue backdrop to the saguaro cacti and as we went along the trail, I thought the world looks more stunning on the back of a horse! This is a great way to experience the Sonoran Desert, whether a local or visiting from out of town. Make the drive...it's worth it!

“Sunset Ride and Chuck Wagon Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2012

We had a group of 24 riders and 22 riding a wagon for a sunset ride. The ride was just beautiful. We watched the sun tint the mountains red, saw huge saguaros silhouetted against the red sunset sky. Truly stuff of postcards. Then off to a great campfire and steak dinner. Everyone had a great time.

We decided to take a sunset ride after receiving a groupon offer. The stables are located inside the Colossal Cave Park, so make sure to leave early to arrive on time. Additionally, make sure you have at least $5 in cash. Entrance into the park is not included in your ride expense and they only take cash. To make the best use of time, I would suggest arriving early enough to see the cave and then head out to the stables after. Why not? Your paying the park entrance and driving all the way out there anyway.

The ride itself was pleasant with great views and lasted just long enough to be fun without going too long. I was not crazy about our guide, but that is something of a personal preference. Overall, I would recommend this activity to just about anyone, especially those not native to the southwest.
