The Place for a Trail Ride in Tucson

This place rocks. The horses are older, very well behaved former rodeo stars, all healthy, happy and taken care of like you would expect an ardent horse lover to do. The ride can be private or in a group, and great care is taken to put the right horse with rider. The trails through Saguaro NP are downright gorgeous, sublime,... More

I called for a private horseback ride and Houston's was able to quickly accommodate my request. Bobbi took me out for a 90 minute ride. Her and her cohort, Sarah, first determined that I basically knew my way around a horse. Then we were off. We traversed through the beautiful Saguaro National Park East. We jogged and loped in the...

My wife Lisa and I went on a private horseback ride with the owner, Bobbi Houston, on Friday afternoon 11/04/2016. After two hours with Bobbi, I can see why she has the highest rated horseback riding outfit in Tucson. The sunset ride was fabulous. She could tell that my wife was nervous and made her feel so at ease so... More

We had the best time riding through Saguaro cacti in Tucson, AZ, with our guides,( the veterinarian and one of the owners.) We opted for the private ride instead of a tail to nose group ride, and it was well worth anything extra we may have paid. This was definitely a big "highlight" of our trip and when we go... More

Even though the trail was super dusty and I should have worn long pants, the horseback ride was very nice! We had a bigger group so it was near impossible to hear the guide on the lead horse but the scenery was stunning. Saguaro cacti were inches away and so majestic - really cool.

I have not ridden a horse since I was 7 years old and it was a very traumatic experience. For my 31st birthday I wanted to change that experience and what better location than on holiday in Tucson! The wrangler (Kayla?) was very considerate of my fears (although I was trying not to show it!). I had a wonderful old... More

We picked the Houston Horseback riding based on prior TripAdvisor reviews. Simply an awesome experience. So good in fact we booked a second ride a few days later. From beginning to end this was a great experience. This is a family owned ranch who clearly love their horses. They have wonderful gentle horses and the Houston family are friendly and... More

Experiencing the joys of the desert is always fun, but doing so on a horse is completely different! Going up and down trails on horseback is an experience to remember.

Great guides and horses! Sized the horse to my size! Horses sure footed and very friendly. A trail ride through Saguaro National Park East. Learned a lot about the vegetation and saw interesting cactus.
