World class riding adventures with world class guides
Windwalker Expeditions is a private Arizona horseback riding company. This means that it’s just you, or you and your party, and our guide. This unique and private setting allows us to plan a safe and exciting desert excursion for your small group at any horseback riding skill level—from novice to expert or a mix of both.
Windwalker is not a stable. We are completely mobile and enjoy the freedom to trailer our horses to various trailheads throughout the state of Arizona.
We’ve been guiding horseback and wilderness adventures since 1996 and are based out of Cave Creek, Arizona—approximately 45 minutes north of the Scottsdale/Phoenix area. Our guides are carefully selected for their experience and excellent personalities, and they are true professionals who love what they do.
So if you’re looking for a unique desert horseback riding adventure, you can’t beat Windwalker Expeditions. Contact us now to let us help you plan your unforgettable event.
