We originated in Chandler, Arizona at KOLI Equestrian Center.  If you are in the area, make sure to come out for ride on the Gila River Indian Community desert lands rich in history and the beauty of the Southwest at KOLI Equestrian Center.

Horseback riding at KOLI Equestrian Center is suitable for beginners and advanced riders. Private and group trail rides are available. We offer an experience well beyond traditional head to toe riding. We strive to properly introduce new riders to the sport of western horseback riding on gentle horses. Whether you’re a beginner or an advance rider, we welcome all to come and enjoy this wonderful sport.

At KOLI Equestrian Center, Horseback Trail Riding is available 7 days per week, year round. We are just minutes away from Central Phoenix where our 2400 acre property is home to some of the most breathtaking scenes in all of the Southwest.

You can make any of our trail rides private (cost is a little more) with just you and a guide conducting your horseback trail ride. These Private Rides give you the opportunity to stop anywhere for pictures and to set the pace at your own speed whether it is walk only or trot. Our guide will strive to make your ride an enjoyable and memorable experience.KOLI Equestrian Center location Map

Please note WE DO NOT RUN our horses due to the desert terrain and ground burrowing animals for the riders’ and horses’ safety. Once riders demonstrate their ability to our staff, we MAY (not guaranteed) work pace up to light trot ONLY. The ride will be at the weakest link’s ability. You must listen to and remain with our staff at all times.

Whether a Group or Private guided horseback ride, we ride across over 2400 acres across the Gila River Indian Reservation. Beautiful Arizona landscaping featuring mountains in the distance, and native Arizona trees and plants. We will ride on tribal lands, rich in history, with the most magnificent views Southern Arizona has to offer. With over 2400 acres of equestrian trails, we guarantee you will enjoy this wonderful scenic experience.
