My sister & I went a year ago in the fall. This time we came back with my husband, and her daughter. Again, Marge did a great job of matching up horses to the riders checking our weight, height & experience level. We were fortunate to have Chris again as our wrangler, checking to be sure we were all OK... More

From the moment we were greeted by Marge when we drove up, our outing here was delightful. Marge was welcoming, funny, and sweet. Toni was our guide for our 3-hour ride, and she was happy and informative about the scenery and the ranch we rode through. I had never been on a horse for more than a few minutes, and... More

Ron and Marge offer a truly unique riding experience, not your standard nose to tail. We wanted to get up into the mountains so we took the 2 night 3 day ride. Ron was our guide with a young wrangler, and we had two friendly, sure footed horses. With three pack horses our fantastic climb to 9,000 feet began. We... More

I went on an amazing private all day ride in late April. The horses, scenery, and hospitality were just terrific. What a lovely area to ride. Very different than the lower desert areas and nice and cool. I ride fairly often and couldn't have asked for a better day on horseback. Thank you Marge and Ron for a great time!

My husband and I have had horses our whole adult life but still like riding in other parts of the country to experience places you can't see from your car. We have stayed at 18 guest ranches and never experienced a problem. I call Arizona horse experience to set up a time to ride their 3 hr. ride and then... More

We love our horses and are generally able to take anyone with a Body Mass Index of 29 or less. For the safety of our horses and riders, we require that all our guests be physically capable of mounting a full sized horse without the use of a mounting block. Ron More

My sister, Annette, and I did the 3 hr. ride to the Soinita Winery yesterday, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Marge & Ron were very accommodating. They made sure that the horses were appropriate for our size & weight, and provided us with a saddle horn bag to carry all our necessities like camera, phone, keys, sunblock, etc. Worked better...

Took a nice long 3 hour horseback ride to the Sonoita winery. Our guide was kind and knowledgeable. The horses were well mannered and the scenery was beautiful. Two thumbs up to AZ Horseback Experience.

My wife and I chose the 3-hr ride, having not been on a ride in 20 years. The owners Marge & Ron were very cordial. They set us up with 2 good horses Barney and Jasper. They both provided very comfortable riding. Our guide Valerie was perfect. She showed exceptional horse experience and was very informative about the Baboquivari Ranch... More

At first, all four of us were not sure of the three hours we would spend on horseback, but once we started, time flew by! Authentic southwestern scenery and hospitality was welcoming by our hosts, Marge and Ron. Horses were perfect fully matched with our individual riding experiences. An added treat was the harmonica serenade by our knowledgeable guide, Ron.... More
