When you walk up and see the stable of horses, you know you picked the right place to ride. The horses are so well cared for- just beautiful, and the staff is eager to please. Once mounted, you ride into a magazine cover- a photographer's dream come true. The views are indescribable: magnificent, stunning, awesome,but those adjectives don't do justice... More

Our blooms just keep getting better and better because of all the rain we've had this winter. Personally, I've lived here my whole life and haven't seen them bloom like this before! We thank you for writing a review and riding with us! Hope to see you again soon! Shelby More

We had a great time on our trail ride with Shelby last Monday. The trail can be a bit scary at times for beginners, however the horses are well behaved, calm and, well trained. We highly recommend Cave Creek Trail Rides.

Thank you for riding with me! Next time we should try the lower trails. It's more of a flatter terrain, but still goes through the washes and has great views. Hope to see you out here again soon! Shelby More

We had a wonderful time on our trail ride with Shelby. My 9 and 12 year old sons were nervous but ended up loving the ride thanks to Shelby. She kept them engaged with her knowledge of the area and vegetation. We highly recommend you ride with them.

I was amazed at how she instantly memorized all our names. We had Grandma and Grandpa with us on the ride and Rebekah was very attentive to their physical limitations. She kindly... More
