After some white knuckle moments (The Wife, not me), on the hilly road just before the ranch, we were greeted upon arrival by the happiest bunch of dogs I have ever seen. My wife fell in Love with Sanchez, the chubby little Chihuahua who thinks he is boss! We went on the three hour ride which covered three peaks in the wilderness. Most horses want to stop and graze, and it can be frustrating reigning them constantly. This is the first time my Wife had a horse she did not have to wrestle with. Cardio, (For his heart shaped marks), was a gem. I rode Gypsy. She was an incredible horse. She was vying for the lead on parts of the ride and she was a real champ. Responsive and a very comfortable gait. We rode on some amazing terrain. On one rather steep decent, Ron, managed to keep the wife calm and she rode it well. I highly recommend the Double R.
Would have loved to be offered and provided water on the ride. Additionally the outhouse had no toilet paper. Unable to let the horses run and stretch their legs, even for the stretch to the house. That would have been great! Beyond that, it was great and we loved it!
Wish I could rate it 6 stars! My wife and grand daughter had the very best time there. Ron and Poncho were very patient with three beginning riders, especially my 7 year old grand daughter. Safety was number one, with fun being number two. Half day ride was great, not just on flat ground but over some hills. Very beautiful desert country side! Great horses (mine was Duke!) and a pack of friendly funny dogs. The very best time you can have. Next time we are in Arizona we will return to the Double R Ranch! Extremely Good Rating! Do not miss this great experience.
