My husband and I took a one hour ride with Chris. It felt like riding with a friend! Cinnamon and Dudley were great horses. It’s a working ranch so the animals are well cared for and loved!

Beautiful setting and and Chris (Kris?) was fantastic. A great time! The hills around Sedona were beautiful and the red rocks and San Francisco Peaks off in the distance enchanting. Horses were well behaved too

The world class petroglyphs at the V Bar V Heritage Site make an awesome stop on your way to the ranch. Just 3 miles from us, and on the same raod. Thanks for mentioning that and for your review.

Everyone was warm, courteous and professional. I'm a horse person, so it was particularly heartening to see that the horses were in excellent shape as were the barn and surrounding facilities. We loved the ride!

Absolutely loved the 1-hour horseback ride. Our guide was excellent, the ride was beautiful, and I adored my horse, Cinnamon. Never had I experienced a casual horseback ride with a horse that loved her job! The 1-hour tour is best for non-frequent horseback riders. I...More
