We scheduled a 90 minute sunset ride at Pusch Ridge Stables this past week and had a wonderful time. This is a family-run business with friendly guides. I have little experience in riding & was at ease shortly into the ride. The horses were very calm & easy to work with. The trail was scenic--with perfect timing of riding on a ridge as the sun set--Stunning!

There was a family with young children on our ride as well--the kids did great with the horses the staff had picked out for them.

Overall, great experience!

My wife Diane desired to go horseback riding at least once in
Arizona as she is an animal lover. THIS WAS MY FIRST EXPERIENCE outside of being on a pony as a youngster. My wife, however, had a moderate amount of horesback riding dating back to her childhood. Well, the stable horse I rode was Preston a rather beautiful (male). My wife rode "Sparkle.", a filly. After reading and signing waiver forms,, Vickie Pitts (owner) prepared my horse, Preston. I mounted the horse and Vickie gave me basic instuctions regarding the reins and the way to control of the horse. What Vickie did next was important as she checked and measured my stirrup. It was perfect as once when I was riding Preston dpwn an incline or slope my right foot came out of the stirrup but because Vickie adjusted my stirrups,
I could easily place my foot back onto the stirrup. Vickie also did the same adjustments for my wife. Our Trail Guide was a gal (I forgot
her name but the name Carol comes to mind-Anyway she had previously resided in Panama City Florida where my sister lives now) She was an excellent Trail Guide as she explained what to do when we were going up a slight hill or down a slope. She also gave colorful descriptions
regarding the landscape and wildlife. To me this one hour (and five minute) Tenderfoot "Trail" was really meant for more experienced riders but boy did I enjoy my ride, Preston has a tendency to bend his head to look for a snacK. He did this twice and our trail guide explained what to do and after his third try, Preston knew I was in control. In any event my wife and I (Clifford) really enjoyed the horses, the professional staff, and the Catalina State Park. I would recommend Pusch Ridge Stables and hopefully be back for another horseback ride.
