What people are saying about Arizona

It was a very quaint charming ranch. The horses were each special in their own way. One or two of the horse’s especially “Burrito” appeared injured and hard for him to walk the entire way. That was the only negative about the trip seeing him struggle. We hope they will retire him immediately to only be doing some sort of Equine therapy in a way where no one is riding him & he is not walking on rocks and mountains.The horse guide was entertaining & was experienced. KC played the guitar and harmonica and shared the history of the land! It was unique. KC was a real gentleman and made me the best hot chocolate and let me wear his jacket as it was very cold. If you are coming in from Vegas, be ready for a 2hr drive. We enjoyed the trip and seeing the landmarks along the way. It was fun with Bob and Sharon driving! They are both kind and friendly. Great 70’s classic songs in the car and Sharon took us to a great native shop on our way out. We loved the experience and the gems we received.

Excellent! Sharon are driver was delightful. Colten our trail guide was such a gentleman. Cowboy Dave funny, entertaining & great story teller , Reba our chef - excellent & also mom to Colten! Highly recommend! Horses were well cared for & well behaved.

Truly an awesome experience for my wife and I. Will not hesitate in the future to return next time we’re in the area
