USA ( Best airport: Tucson, Arizona)

Take a step back in time at this working cattle guest ranch amid the rugged mountains and deserts of Arizona. This destination offers a true western experience; the ranch is set up like an 1800s frontier town and caters for riders of all levels with a variety of horses and trails. Children are welcome and evening entertainment is provided every night. The ideal trip for those who want to experience the western cowboy lifestyle as seen in the films! Riders can even ride into the local town of Tombstone and hitch up their horse to the local saloon.

The Riding

The varied trail riding suits all riders, the ranch is surrounded by historic mines, hand dug wells, old railroad trestles and ancient Indian Petroglyphs. There are slow, scenic rides and faster rides with trotting and loping (canter). Specialty rides include half day rides to the town of Tombstone, Beer and Cheetos rides, a tequila tasting ride, and a popular history ride for those who want to know more about the surrounding area, cowboys, miners and Apaches and the All Day Ride to the ghost town, Fairbank.

Cattle work such as team penning is also available for guests to participate in and riding lessons are offered (extra charge).
Riders can choose which rides they want to join each day and how much they want to ride.

Guides and Group Size

Each ride is guided by the ranch’s experienced wranglers. All of them are experienced riders with extensive knowledge of the region and its history. All riders wanting to join the faster rides will have their riding experience assessed by a wrangler before departing on the ride. Group size can be between 2 and 8 riders.

The Horses

Riding horses available at the ranch are mostly American Quarter Horses, which have been selected for their calm temperaments, intelligence and turn of speed when required. These horses are true all rounders able to adapt to the trail or to working cattle. There are a small number of heavier draft type horses and crosses available for heavier riders.

Tack and Riding Equipment

All the riding at the ranch is Western style. Saddles have a broad seat which makes them very comfortable to ride in and bridles are made up of a simple leather headstall with either western snaffle or shank bits, depending on the horse.
