Scenic Trail Rides
Looking for the best horseback ride in the Valley of the Sun? We’ve got it!. Ride through the pristine Sonoran desert with exhilarating panoramas of mountains, canyons, and mesas. You will likely see some of the wild horses that roam the Fort McDowell Yavapai lands. There’s also a good chance you’ll see some eagles, hawks, and vultures flying overhead, along with some lizards, snakes, coyotes, and bobcats running underfoot. All in all, it will be an enjoyable day on the dusty trail with a short splash through the Verde River on horseback. From first-timers to seasoned cowpokes, all levels of ability are welcomed.
“A group of us recently went horseback riding here and it was so much fun. Gorgeous tour through multiple types of vegetation and very sweet horses. Not scary at all for beginners. Seeing wild horses and riding through rivers made the experience so cool.” – Natalie B., Yelp
