Spur Cross Stables
Spur Cross Stables lives above an old 19th-century gold mine right on the edge of Tonto National Forest and its 3 million acres of rocky mesas, Saguaro cactus, and abundant desert wildlife. The stables' array of trail rides intertwine across some 30% of this vast landscape, leading up to seven riders at a time through Native American ruins, packs of coyotes, and vintage UFOs. Rides range from one hour to a full day, and match each city slicker up with one of the 50 gentle horses available for riding––many of which have been rescued from unhealthy situations. After the desert traipse is over, guides give each member of their group a carrot to feed their hoofed transport as a token of friendship and appreciation.
“It is nice to tip your guide if you enjoy your ride”

“For the price, this was a good deal. The guide didn't really add any color to what we were seeing on the trail and unless you were one of the first couple of riders didn't even hear anything he was saying at all. The ride was a little long given that you were not seeing varied terrain, one cactus looks like all the others. ”
