Jeff and Deb Bitton began blazing the trails of Idaho in 1969, leading horseback expeditions into the mountains and hills of the American frontier. Thirty years later, the couple fulfilled their own manifest destiny by expanding their operation to Arizona, where they help equestrians trot along the public lands of Cave Creek Regional Park and Estrella Mountain Regional Park, the headquarters of Corral West Adventures. There, groups of riders mount up with Jeff and Deb to explore the rolling hills and mountains as the region’s first settlers did—taking cell-phone photos from their saddles. By settling in Estrella Park, Corral West has been able to extend its services beyond trail rides, hosting yearly festivals, teaching rodeo techniques, and hosting romantic wagon rides ending with campfires that blaze against the beautiful matte-painting backdrop of the Estrella Mountains.
