A really relaxing way to enjoy the science views no need to have ridden a horse before, the 1 hour trail is great for anyone. Horses very well behaved and the guide was very helpful and provided a great experience.

This was our first time horseback riding and it was wonderful! We did the 1.5 hour trail with Jeremy who was great. The views from the trail were peaceful and beautiful. Our kids loved picking out boots to wear!

I had a great, relaxing ride on a well trained horse. Pecos was sure-footed and responsive to my aids. All the horses looked well cared for - healthy weight, well shod feet, and access to water before and after the ride. Two thumbs up!

No, the pace was slow. But, you did have to watch out for thorns from the cacti catching you as you passed by!
