​If you’re wanting a wonderful place to horseback ride just outside of Phoenix, make sure to check out Saguaro Lake Guest Ranch Stables!

This picturesque location is truly unique; featuring Saguaro Lake, the spectacular Bulldog Cliffs and the Salt River winds through the Ranch property, and you’re able to experience it all on horseback.

What I loved most is that the horses were well cared for, the handlers obviously adored the animals, and they were very well behaved. 

For more information, visit their website.
