“Making this a tradition.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

From now on, I'm taking all my visitors out here to Surprise Arizona to the White Tanks Riding Stables. My nephew is 7 years old and we weren't sure if he'd be big enough to ride on his own, our guide was phenomenal and they were able to taylor a ride for us that was fun and relaxing and perfect for my nephew as well. These blokes were absolutely wonderful. If you're visiting Phoenix, this is a southwest must!

“Morning ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

My assumed cousin, Jeff, was welcoming and professional. Relaxing and beautiful ride with great horses. Our guide, Scott, was full of information about the wildlife and landscape. Also, he had that cowboy politeness about him that embodied the western feel.

“Romantic Sunset Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

My fiance and I stumbled upon this great spot while taking a hike in White Tank to see the Petroglyphs on a annual visit to see family in AZ. We were delighted to learn about a Sunset Horse Back Tour around the mountain. After our hike we stopped in to the quaint little "ranch" with nice looking horses and baby calves, mini ponies, and a funny little baby potbelly named Charlotte. We were enthusiastically greeted by Jeff, who told us he'd accommodate us any way he can so we can have a nice sunset ride and were assured that we'd be happy with any of the horses. We returned 2 days later for our appointment and were greeted again by Jeff and Ryan who were getting our horses ready. We were taken on a sweet relaxing, leisurely ride through the mountain on Hank, and The Undertaker, who couldn't have been more docile and sweet horses. The sunset was breathtaking and Jeff's knowledge of the mountains and funny stories were entertaining. We would highly recommend White Tank Riding Stables to anyone who wants something to do in the area. It's great for couples, friends and families. We will definitely return on our next visit.
