We had a group of four adults go, and it was a blast! Rusty was our guide, and he was phenomenal! He took the time to explain different aspects of the desert and ranch, as well as share personal stories. He also volunteered to take plenty of photos for us as we rode the trail. The ranch offers lunch (for... More

We had SO much fun! Our guide, Joe, was awesome. He was attentive and patient with a bunch of city slickers. You can tell the horses are well cared for and the wranglers really enjoy their jobs. The trail ride was great. The Old West town and its activities - tomahawk throwing, pistol shooting, archery, and quick draw (with blanks)... More

What a great trail ride! Beautiful scenery, great horses, nice people! Sam was my trail guide... we had a great conversation through out the ride. His knowledge of Western history and the Az landscape, animals, events of yesteryear was interesting. The walk thru town, getting to shoot bullets, arrows, throw tomahawks, rope a steer, hang out in the saloon, eat... More

We had an amazing time. Plan on spending the day. Rusty is the man. We enjoyed the entire experience from horseback riding to skeet shooting, pistol shooting and tomahawk throwing. We even shot bow and arrows.

Stayed at The Phoenician and was given a recommendation for this outfit. Drove an hour, past multiple other horseback riding outfits, and was skeptical at whether it would be worth the additional time investment. It was. We have a six year old girl and two boys, ten and eleven. Our family of five met Rusty at 4:00 and went on... More
