My wife booked two reservations, our first day an "easy" sunset ride for the two of us and second day an advanced ride for her. Joseph, our guide, took us out on his horses and told us not to let our horses near each other as they had issues with each other. Being a newbie, that was kind of unsettling,... More

We love to horseback ride and contacted Windwalker Expeditions to ride on the Cave Creek, AZ area. They couldn't have been more accommodating! The ride is private so you can ride at your experience level. Windwalker Expeditions doesn't have a stable so they trailer the horses to the location you'll be riding. The horses were beautiful and so well cared... More

This is by far the best horseback riding excursion I have ever experienced! I signed up for a private ride as a way to treat myself after a busy, non-stop year with my business. I needed a way to completely unplug and “get away from it all”. My adventure that day went beyond my expectations and renewed my energy and... More

We went in August, and so had a private 6am ride, which was awesome. We are intermediate riders and our guide let us canter for a half mile through the desert, which was a thrill. These were privately owned horses - beautiful Arabians. My daughter loved this even more than helicoptering into the Grand Canyon.

We booked a 3-4 hour trek in advance of leaving for the States. Everything was handled very professionally and questions asked to make sure we were getting what we wanted out of the trip. As a totally inexperienced individual on a horse I am astounded at the level of confidence they put in me. We had a superb, fantastic idyllic... More

I had not been on a horse since mine passed away 25 years ago. I chose Windwalker because they offer a more unique experience for all skill levels. All of the tours are private and match the rider to a horse based on your riding skills. We met our tour guide and headed to the Tonto National Park with the... More

3 of us enjoyed a beautiful ride through Tonto National Park. It was rather sedate for my taste (minimal trotting, mainly walking) but I had told them when booking the ride that my son was very uncomfortable around horses so our pace may have been a reflection of that. Regardless, it was nice to be outdoors exploring a new area... More

Shelly was so very helpful in determining which horse ride would be best for us. This was our 2nd horseback ride ever but we toughened it up and did a 4 hour ride with lunch. Bill was our host and guide! He was wonderful. He knew how to teach us novices a few very important instructions to make our ride... More

My mount, my guide and the scenery were fantastic. I rode the striking black Arabian gelding, "Jasper", who shared my love and joy for being on the desert trail in Tonto National Forest. Joseph was my guide, a seasoned, experienced, kind, knowledgable horseman. He trained Jasper himself to be a steady, willing, attentive mount. As a horse owner, and novice... More

Amazing mount "Jasper" took me on a 2 hour gorgeous ride! Was easy to just be in the moment. Really needed this break from daily hustle. Thank You Joseph for educating me on the vegetation and history of the land too.
