We meet all our guests trailside to streamline your experience and keep you from driving hours to a remote location. Our knowledgable Wranglers know all about the Native American history & culture as well as the old mining history. Of course lets not exclude the breathtaking scenery, flora and fauna that surround us on a daily basis.
Our goal is to customize and personalize each riders experience. Since we meet you at a designated trail head we can offer rides spanning from 1 hour to all day. We have the ability to cater high end lunches a well as serve each riders ability whether you are a beginner or an experienced equestrian. Our permits allow us to ride in a very unique terrain with remarkable views of the Sonoran desert with occasional high points looking over the entire valley. There are also those special rides that can come across ancient petroglyphs and ruin sites dating from 1,000 years ago.
Diamond Buckle Adventures is a very small operation. Reason being is that only a few care enough to create memories to last a life time. You cannot teach how to care or to love your job so we have selected a couple of Wranglers that stand above the rest in knowledge and in safety. There is a lot of work that goes into training the right horses, educating one self and knowing how to handle ALL situations that can arise from trail riding. Our guides are certified in CPR and have a collective of 40 years outfitting & 80 years in the saddle along with all kinds of terrain and with all kinds of individuals, including children and people with special needs. Our tack is new & first rate, our horses are parade savvy and handle most situations flawlessly and safely.
We sincerely look forward to creating your special experience, let us know how we can be of service.
