My mom, younger sister and I went to the White Tank Stables in Phoenix, Arizona branch. When we arrived, the only person there was Amanda, our guide. She put my sister on her horse first. Then, as she brought mine over, she told me that the horse was stubborn and would do what she could to not go on the... More

Beatiful views with desert flora and moutains. Extremly peaceful and relaxing ride. If looking for an exciting horse back riding with trotting or faster ride, look else where. This 2hr trip is all at walking pace and is great for people with little or no experience riding. Horse are well mannered and our tour guide stopped and took pictures of... More

We decided yesterday to book a 2 hour ride for 2 of us (thankful we found a Groupon!!) I called and they were able to book us the time we wanted with no problem at all. Went this morning and had a great time. Horses were very sweet and Ron, our guide, was very nice.

When we arrived more people were there, the guide told us he could only take 9 people, there was a total of 13 people, I called the lady in charge of scheduling and she told me that I was in the system for a ride that...

My 3 kids and I were part of a group of 6 and Jake, the tour guide and authentic Cowboy led us for 2 hours through the trails in the White Tank Recreation area near Surprise and Waddell. Jake did a great job and... More

Ok, so was a little nervous as i have never been on a horse before. It was easy going, although towards the end my rear was feeling it a bit. Had a fantastic time though and would highly recommend. Friendly staff, very quiet horses and fantastic view. Highly recommend
