Smiling Horse in the Sonoran Desert

Scottsdale, AZ, United States
19 Kudos
My daughter and I have gone horseback riding in Arizona twice. The first time was in the Sonoran desert in Scottsdale and the second time was near Superstition mountains on a group trail ride. The scenery was more interesting near Superstition mountains, but the Scottsdale ride was a private ride, so we enjoyed that aspect of it more. We saw a lot of segura cacti and wild plants and brush in Scottsdale. It was dry and hot, but our guide from the ranch was awesome. The horses are well cared for at MacDonald Ranch and they will cater to all levels of horseback riders.
