Shelby was our friendly, knowledgable, and able guide on our ride yesterday into the desert trails. She knew a great deal about the desert plants and animals, which was also a bonus for us. We highly recommend her and the Cave Creek Trail Rides.

First time riding horses for me and my girls. Shelby rode with us. Excellent staff at Cave Creek Trail Rides. We went riding for an hour. Best time ever. Great experience, awesome scenery, and well worth the money. We went on April 17, 2017.

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