The most beautiful horseback riding in Scottsdale, Arizona.

 

Cave Creek Outfitters is nestled near the Rio Verde river and surrounded by the McDowell Mountain and Mazatzal Mountian ranges . Our location allows our rides to wind through the pristine beauty of both the McDowell Sonoran Preserve and the Tonto National Forrest- making us the only Scottsdale ranch who can get you away from the city to enjoy the true beauty of the Sonoran desert. 

We are known for our wonderfully conditioned & well mannered horses for riders of all ages. All of our trail rides have a maximum of 5 to 7 riders per group, which allows your wrangler to provide the best personalized experience possible. 

Throughout your horseback ride, your wrangler will entertain and educate you by talking about our horse herd, the desert cactus/plant & animal life you will see along your ride, and the lore of the area. 

All of our saddles have a canvas horn bag hanging on the front of your saddle to accommodate your camera, wallet, car keys & complimentary water.  (No Back Packs or Purses, please)  Having your camera available allows you to capture pictures of the towering saguaros and the beautiful scenery.  Have your wrangler be your photographer by taking a picture of you on your horse for a keepsake or proof of your Arizona experience. 

Whether you are a “vacation rider, seasoned rider”  or maybe have never been on a horse, Cave Creek Outfitters is a perfect place for you to experience and feel the spirit of the famous and nameless cowboys, soldiers, pioneers, outlaws and Indians who crossed many of the horseback trails you will be riding. 

 

Gives us a call and we'll show you Arizona as it is meant to be seen...

We booked this last minute and were so glad we did!! My first visit to Arizona and never been to a desert.. What an amazing way to see it.. We opted for the two hour ride . John was our guide, he was informative and fun. The horses are so gentle ,and well cared for. John pointed out the varied cacti , and plant life ..we got to see some wild life.. Quail, cottontail , and jackrabbits ..Ravens , Hawks and the cutest little desert squirrel. The peaceful feeling you get while being on horseback in the desert can’t be described in mere words ..something I will never forget!! A must do!!!!
