MTM Ranch: Trail Rides in Cave Creek

Located just 10 minutes from Scottsdale and in the heart of Carefree and Cave Creek, Arizona is the premier horseback riding stable. MTM Ranch, the oldest of Cave Creek's riding stables has been providing trail rides for almost a quarter century. MTM features more than a trail ride on horseback, it provides an experience.

Tranquil. Serene. Up close with nature that holds so many secrets of many centuries past when the ancient Hohokam Indians made this area their home. Jump on one of our steeds of young paints and quarter horses and take a ride into some of the most beautiful High Sonoran Desert Country you will ever experience. Mountainous and rugged adventure through the Willow Springs Conservation Area. The further you ride into this rich habitat, the more exciting it becomes with photo- taking moments at every turn.

There will be no streets to cross, no cars, no one else but the horse beneath you, the sky above you and the incredible views beyond you. Located just below the Southern Border of the Tonto National Forrest and just to the East of Spur Cross Nature Preserve. Guided rides take you through some beautiful Saguaro forests with options to ride up rocky trails high above Cave Creek.

Corporate groups, private trail rides and families on vacation. Riders must be at least 7 years-old. No riding experience necessary and safety is always a priority. These trail rides are leisurely. No galloping along the trails. Generally riders, should not exceed 240 pounds, but call ahead and inquire.

Most of the horses were trained right on the ranch and it has made them especially fit athletes for the job. Expert MTM Ranch Wranglers will entertain, enlighten and educate you and your group on how to ride to the best of your ability and maximize the time you spend trail riding with us.
