Trip Advisor Testimonials

  • Fun with the kids Fun 90 minute ride with 10yo twins, boy/girl. We've been on several rides and the only dig on this trip was that the landscape. It was a typical trail for AZ, but pretty mundane. The guides were knowledgeable and skilled so that put us at ease so we could enjoy the ride. As an aside, when we finished the ride we went to the Dancing Apache winery which is on the same road about a 1/4 mile away. I'll review that separately but the combination of riding and then enjoying the winery was a 5!

    Premier Ride We had an absolutely amazing time! We got to have Tanner himself as our guide, he was very friendly and professional. I used to ride and missed it so much. I finally got my horse fix in and even got to gallup for a bit...put the biggest smile on my face. I highly recommend Horsin Around! Next time we’re in Arizona we will definitely be visiting them again!

    Highlight of our trip I grew up with horses. My daughter and husband were very apprehensive about riding. They agreed to go with me and were so happy they did. We all agreed it was the highlight of our trip. Logan was a fantastic leader. Very personable and knowledgeable. My husband and I wish we had his job! He knows and loves horses and it shows. Wished our ride would have lasted longer.

  • Beautiful!! This was my first time ever riding a horse and Logan made sure it was an amazing experience! He helped us feel comfortable and confident on the horses and showed us the most incredible views. We not only got to take in the scenery but we also got to ask him a million questions about the ranch, horse training, Arizona, etc. It was a very personal and enjoyable tour that I would highly recommend to anyone!

    Ride off into the Sedona Sunset While spending time in Sedona, we booked a horse back riding excursion with Horsin' Around Adventures and loved it. We opted for a group ride at sunset and the views were gorgeous! We had so much fun. The horses were all very tame and safe for all ages, even kids. They provide all the safety equipment and instruction that you need. We had 2 guides with us to help make sure everything went smoothly. I'd highly recommend! Oh, and if you are a wine lover, there are several vineyards surrounding their property. Next time, I think I'd try their wine horseback riding tour. 😉

    Excellent companionship with Horses we had a family reunion in The area and were staying in Oak creek Village. We were really interested in a horse back riding experience. Ages of riders ranged from 7-54. we had a great time with our guide and horses. As sun was setting during the last cowpoke ride of the day in Jan, 2018 we enjoyed great scenery and companionship. Our guides were just awesome and were accommodating to needs of all.

  • Awesome Sunset Ride Had a wonderful sunset ride with Max! Max was very intuitive to the type of ride we were looking for and was very knowledgeable of the area being an Arizona native and provided a wealth of interesting information on our ride. Felt completely safe and comfortable riding Fajita. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely be going back on next visit to the area. Highly recommend, all the staff was friendly, accommodating and felt like old friends from the start!

    So Much Fun! My husband and I decided to ride horses while on vacation in Sedona. We both hadn't ridden a horse since we were kids so we signed up for the Cowpoke ride, 1 1/2 hours.

    There were only 4 other people signed up for this ride so it was nice and personal. Max did a great job of orienting us to the horses and he put us at ease that we would all be just fine. Max took the lead on the tour and his associate, Justin, followed along in back. Both were friendly and informative and we enjoyed the experience very much. Highly recommend...

    A big shout out to my horse, Red Apple, for being such a good girl!!

  • great, chill horseback ride through the canyon We did the 1.5-hour horseback ride through the canyon and lucked out that nobody else was in our group, meaning the two of us got a personal tour with our guide, Justin. He was great. He led us through a dusty, rocky trail and told us about all the plants and animals that thrive in this habitat. He also told funny stories about all the horses' different personalities on the ranch. The horses are chill and this is an easy ride. Def recommend for an afternoon adventure.

    Cowpoke Ride I am an experienced rider, however I haven't ridden much in the past few years. Most of the other riders had little experience. Max did an excellent orientation before the ride explaining the basics of riding a horse. I thought this was excellent for the less experienced riders. The horses were well cared for and great trail riding horses. Max took time on the ride to point out areas of interest, which I appreciated. I would highly recommend Horsin' Around!

    Amazing Ride My wife and I went on the 1.5 hr ride with the wine tasting package. The ride was amazing! Max and Justin (our wranglers) did a great job with the group. I've ridden a bit, and this by far is in the top rides I've done. The views are spectacular, the horses are great and the wranglers are great. Would ride there again (and again!)

  • Great Experience My husband and I went on the 1.5 hr ride. I had never ridden before and Kodi made sure I was comfortable before heading out. She was very attentive to the whole group, and keep us all laughing, while still providing information on plants etc along the way.

    She definitely is passionate about the horses and it came through with her enthusiasm. She made all the difference!!!

    We would recommend everyone take in this experience.

    Will never forget Goldie Locks! Had a really great trail ride & wine tasting package done with Horsin' Around. I had this sassy, wonderful gelding named Goldie Locks who made the trail ride very enjoyable and fun! Horses were well matched with riders, and the staff was well trained and handled all situations really well. They worked with novice riders expertly and made sure they were comfortable as well as safe.

    Loved the horses, they were SO well behaved and looked so happy. Really a great operation that felt personalized and unique.

    The wine tasting after was such a treat and Oak Creek Winery did a really good job-it was a great package deal.Delicious wine!

    Great people - Great horses I didn't have high hopes for a dusty horse ride in Arizona in the Summer. However, the 6pm trip was surprisingly pleasant (1+ hours total). The horses were great for us non-enthusiasts. The people that work there are very pleasant & helpful. My wife had a great time. The trails were rocky, but the horses were very agreeable.

  • Incredible & Wonderful 🙂 First off, I want to say that "Kodi" my guide/wranglers was FANTASTIC !!

    I booked a solo trip to the Sedona area for my "50th" birthday!

    I booked a 2 hour private ride with Kodi and so gald that I did. She was absolutely terrific.

    She was beyond knowledgable about horses, horsebackriding etc. I haden't rode a horse in years and I must say I was a litle anxious and scared to take this ride along this particular trail, but Kodi reassured that she was there to guide and help me all the way !!

    And that she did ....... after about 15 mins I was relaxed and totally enjoying every twist and turn on the trail.

    With a little prodding from Kodi, she recommeded that we ride up to the bluff on the mountain across from the ranch. The climb was steep ,but exciting !!

    My horse was so sweet and beautiful.. After we reached the bluff, my heart sank....

    The views were spectacular and breathtaking !!

    I thanked Kodi for pushing me out of my comfort zone and taking on the challenge

    of this ride...Thank god I did !

    This bluff is a VERY VERY special place +

    I would absolutley recommend Horsin Around Adventures to anyone and everyone.

    A must must- book a private ride with Kodi , you will NOT regret it 🙂

    Thank you "Kodi" for being part of so many beautiful memories that I have of my "50th" b-day +

    Horse back riding This is a very scenic ride. Steep inclines and declines that can be very rocky. Our group had all experienced riders. Teens need to wear helmets. Adults do not, but can if they prefer. They use a platform to mount the horses. They say beginners can go on this ride, but I would advise against it. The horses do not follow tail to nose. There often is a bit of space between riders. Some of the horses require more experience in redirecting. My horse wanted to go off roading several times. I had to work to redirect. Overall, horses were well behaved. Only a couple exceptions. The max number they take on rides is fifteen. We had 11 in our party. Two staff rode with us, one in front and one behind. They were great. Half way through they offered us water bottles. They also offered to take several pictures. Willing to rearrange the horses to get specific horses with riders in the picture. It was an hour and a half ride. Very nice!

    Great horses, wranglers and a fun time!!! My wife and I went for an evening ride on 6/23/18. My wife is an experienced rider while I've only ridden once....about 30 years ago. The woman that checked us in was very friendly and clearly knew what she was talking about concerning horseback riding. Our wranglers, Alejandro (Che-Che) and Harold, were very knowledgeable, patient, safety minded and informative. The horses were great and well matched to the riders. The ride was fun and the wranglers were very attentive, engaging and interesting, they were just great!!! They created such a positive experience that after we left, I told my wife that we should ride more often. Great job and thank you all for such a good memory!

  • Great Experience! We picked the right outfit! Everyone was very professional and very friendly. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the area and gave us lots of good information. The trails, the horses and the views were well worth the experience we had. We would highly recommend Horsin' Around to anyone and we will definitely be back!

    Awesome private ride with Lakota We came to Sedona for a week to celebrate our 30th anniversary and I wanted very much to horseback ride while there. My husband looked at a few riding places and called out to the owner of Horsin' Around before we left. She was the most friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Since my husband was not as comfortable riding as I, she took the time to answer all his questions and put all my husband's concerns to rest. They also accommodate all sizes of adults, not just a low weight minimum as with most we found.

    The week before we left we booked for our first day a 2 hour private morning tour and was soooo glad we did. Our guide was Lakota - I cannot say enough about him!!! He was awesome, from his knowledge of the area, to his knowledge of horses and overall kindness and personable attention to us. As I said, my husband was more concerned about falling than anything else. Lakota took the time to ease my husband's concerns, as well as brush me up on my riding skills since it had been awhile. He took the time to teach him how to handle his horse in a reasonable, layman's terms manner, all the while allowing us to have an incredible first day of our trip. The trails are a lot of fun and the views incredible. It was a very special way to start our trip and for me to ride again. I would highly recommend booking a ride with Horsin' Around. They will also provide water bottles and bring along on the ride. Depending on the time of year, morning rides are really nice. We will definitely ride with them again if we ever have the chance to visit Sedona in the future. Only negative - It wasn't long enough! I will want a 3 hr ride next time 🙂

    Thanks so much Lakota and Horsin' Around for making our trip memorable!

    Excellent staff. Interesting area to ride. Great horses! My wife and I took our teen daughter for this adventure and it was great! The horses are wonderful and you'll fall in love with them! The staff made us all comfortable before and during the ride and they chose the horse that "fit" each of us best. Very experienced riders work here, very friendly too. Highly recommended for something different and fun to do in the Page Springs/Sedona area, you'll be glad you did it. VERY interesting area too!

  • Tons of fun! This was a last minute activity my boyfriend and I planned. We were not disappointed. Our guide was Luis and he made what could have been a quiet horse ride enjoyable and filled our small group with laughter. If you are easily offended i suggest you either stay home or get a sense of humor. His jokes were funny (kind of) and corny. Definitely the kind of guy you’d want to grab a beer with after.

    We never expected to go to Arizona and pick ourselves up a Mexican!

    We had a small group, but he made sure we got the most out of it. I brought home a horse shoe and my boyfriend brought home a Mexican! Lol jk! Thanks for the fun adventure Horsin Around!

    Enjoyable Our family did the trail ride and stayed for lunch. The ride was very scenic and the guides kept us entertained with jokes (Yes, some off color as previously reviewed, but in a laid back environment we were comfortable with.) The horses were well taken care of and the guides knew each horse's personality and we were all paired up well.

    Lunch was simple and yummy. They had the spread ready for us upon our return.

    We would definitely return! Good times!

    But remember you are going back country trail riding, and set expectations accordingly.

  • Rustic trail ride My wife and I make a point to arrange a horseback riding trip whenever we travel to Arizona. We have ridden in and around Scottsdale a few times, but this was our first ride in Sedona. We signed up for a 2 hour trail ride. The facility is at the end of an approximately mile long rock, dirt road. I was driving a rental car and was somewhat concerned about damage from rocks and the pitted ‘road’ surface. Our guide was very amiable and obviously very experienced. There is no conventional bathroom at the office (there is an outhouse which was not particularly inviting), The vistas along the trail were spectacular and our guide was very forthcoming regarding taking photos of us. The trails, however were particularly rocky and steep and not necessarily for beginners.

    Very enjoyable We went on a 90 minute horseback ride. I have been in many rides, and this is one of the best. The horses are well cared for, well behaved, and the scenery was great. It is also a lovely drive from Sedona.

    Fun outing, but have been to much better We thought this was a fun outing, but had a few disappointments in it. First, the route wasn't varied, which they can't really control, so it got a bit old after awhile. But more importantly, we found the guide to be a bit offensive. He was nice and trying to be funny, but some of the remarks bordered on racism and maybe we are just too sensitive but this day, it's just not funny.

  • Very fun adventure! From the moment we arrived, we knew this was going to be an adventure to remember.

    My husband and I had not ridden in ... decades! One of us was quite nervous! ;). Luis was fun and funny, informative, and had our trust from the beginning. He and Rodney could do their own stand-up routine, but also were just reassuring enough. What a great way to see this beautiful part of the country. Recommend highly!

    Private 2 Hour Trail Ride - Fantastic! Firstly a massive thank you to Kari who was fantastic at answering all my emails in advance, I had lots of questions!

    Visiting from the UK so needed to research from afar by email who was best to ride with.

    We are both beginners. I have ridden only a handful of times before but I am reasonably comfortable around horses, but still a novice. My boyfriend was a very nervous rider (he was, he now believes he is a ‘natural horseman’ thanks to the lovely calm Dexter, who sure footedly looked after him)

    One of our main concerns was the fact that my boyfriend is 6ft5 tall. Some ranches I enquired with had limits on their horses so couldn’t accommodate him. Kari straight away explained they had a draft horse that would be perfect for him, big enough yet calm enough for a complete beginner.

    The team were great, keeping the tone light and humorous while calmly explaining how to ride and what to expect.

    As it was a private tour our guide Rodney (I hope I’ve remembered that correctly....?!) introduced us to our horses and looked after us so well. He immediately put us at ease and we could see he was extremely experienced in his trade. He taught us what we needed and kept making sure we felt comfortable and safe throughout the ride.

    The terrain was great, quite a lot of uphill and downhill but Dexter and Prince were fantastic with their footwork so we felt completely comfortable with them. It wasn’t just a quick flat walk around the ranch, it was winding pathways up and down the hills around the area. Rodney told us about the history of the area, the nature around us and answered any questions.

    I can’t recommend this company enough. I can only give a review of the private tour rather than a group tour, but I would happily say that for the extra money for private you get an excellent experience. The private tour collected us from our hotel, which was good as I think I may have missed the lane that takes you to the ranch if I was driving!

    All staff we spoke to were very friendly and competent and the horses looked happy and healthy.

    Prince and Dexter were really well chosen for us, they knew what to do and where to go but didn’t just wander along like robots, we did have control of them at all times and they followed instructions.

    Basically the short review is we had a fantastic time and my boyfriend is now not a nervous rider, he even wants to take Dexter home with us!

    Big thank you, we will be back if we manage Visit Arizona again.

    A Real Horseback Riding Adventure Driving up to Sedona, I got a hankering to go horseback riding. Had not been in years. I didn't want just a tame outing but not too difficult either. I mentioned it to the hotel concierge and she immediately recommended Horsin’ Around. Next morning, I was picked up by Christa, an absolutely delightful young woman, who drove me out to their ranch. There I was met two wranglers who picked out a beautiful Belgian named Bonnet for me. Everyone is required to mount with steps so I was saved from having to ask for them. I was lucky because there was only another couple for the ride. We were out about two hours. The trail crossed a wide stream, into a marvelous valley, over a mountain with breathtaking views, and then back to the stable. Anthony, the wrangler provided commentary along the way, identifying all that you can eat from the desert if you every have to. All in all a wonderful time with great people and a ride I will remember. If you are going riding in Sedona, I would suggest you give them a call. More
