Horseback Riding – Experience the Transportation of the Wild West!
For most people, a western adventure experience wouldn’t be complete without a chance to explore the destination from the best vantage point available…atop a saddle! A sauntering stroll along a desert trail, trotting through a shallow wash after a recent monsoon rainfall, or ascending gently up a mountainside (without even breaking a sweat) is an experience you don’t want to miss!
Apache Junction boasts some of the most beautiful scenery in Arizona. The leisurely option on horseback allows visitors to see, smell, hear and experience some of the most incredible elements of the desert and mountains that you could never fully appreciate from the comfort of a vehicle. Experienced equestrian trail guides also share details of the history and legends of the Superstition Mountains and tales from the best of the spirit of the Old West, which sounds waaayy better than listening to a carmate whining, “Are we there yet?”, or complaining about your “bad driving”!
In our neck of the woods, winter and spring are the most popular times to ride with near-perfect temperatures for outdoor experiences. Summer hours are available but often on a limited schedule. Regardless of the time of year, reservations are highly recommended.
Riders have many options to choose from – hourly rides, half-day excursions, and even adventures that include a meal prepared on the campfire! Follow up your horseback adventure with a combo package that includes a trip to the lake for a sunset boat cruise. Now that’s a day of adventure!
Apache Junction truly has some of the best equestrian trails, amenities, and services you can find in Arizona. Our outfitters look forward to finding you the perfect trail-riding journey that will be one of the highlights of your Arizona vacation.
